New leaked document reveals Android 4.4 support for older hardware, TVs and wearables

Android 4.4 KitKat

A new leaked document has revealed some juicy details about Android 4.4 and its compatibility with older devices along with TVs and wearable devices such as Glass. This leak comes from the site where former WSJ reported Amir Afrati uncovers the interesting information. If we head over to Google’s official KitKat page, it says – “It’s our goal with Android KitKat to make an amazing Android experience available for everybody.” This pretty much means that Google won’t be limiting the new version of Android based on hardware.

The report further claims that KitKat could be brought to pretty much any device with a hardware and software system in place. This means that low end smartphones which currently have about 512MB of RAM would be easily compatible with Android 4.4 KitKat without sacrificing on usability. There’s still a lot of questions to be answered, but the announcement of the new OS isn’t too far away now. If the rumors are anything to go by, the new LG Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 could be announced later today.
