Google Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 Kit Kat dropping October 18th?

The next Nexus smartphone and the freshly baked Kit Kat edition of Android missed their putative October 15th due date but should still be with us imminently, reports suggest.

Evidence that the phone is due soon stems from a cryptic Google+ post on confectioner Rowntree’s official Kit Kat page. The post shows a Kit Kat-clad version of the Android mascot with the mysterious message ‘Everybody Dance Now’.

None the wiser? Bear with us and we’ll explain. As fans of bumping US house will know, Everybody Dance Now is the title of a C+C Music Factory's hit from the ‘90s. More importantly, it came out on October 18th 1990.

That's led Android Community to speculate that tomorrow (that’s October 18th, date fans) will mark the debut of the fifth-gen Nexus smartphone.

As is the way with big tech launches, many of the most exciting details of the handset’s spec sheet have already leaked online.

Highlights will apparently include a lavish MEMS camera and a larger 4.95-inch screen. We can also look forward to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 4G support.

Details of Android 4.4 are less easy to come by. But leaked screenshots indicate they’ll be an iOS 7-style redesign, with rethought Google apps and a cleaner, more modern look.
