Android 4.4.1 KitKat seen on Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 in server logs
Various sources say that what looks like an incremental KitKat update has been seen in server logs, running on the Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.
Website 9to5Google said that it spotted all three devices in its analytics, running the new KitKat version, with those devices checking in on its posts from Santa Clara, California. The first Android 4.4.1 KitKat sightings occurred soon after November 15, although those were only scattered visits. However, in the last few days, Android 4.4.1 has been spotted at a significantly increased rate (see following image). In addition to Nexus devices, an unknown device also running 4.4.1 has been registered.
Furthermore, well-known HTC ROM developer LLabTooFeR has also tweeted details about Android 4.4.1. Apparently the HTC One Google Play edition will get Android 4.4.1 “in the near future,” as firmware version KOT49E.
HTC One GE will get 4.4.1 (KOT49E) in near future…

It’s still too early to tell you what’s included in Android 4.4.1, but we’d expect it to contain further improvements and bug fixes. But then again, Google did release KitKat updates to iron out certain bugs, without changing the number, while this time around KitKat is moving to version 4.4.1. We’ll be back with more details about it once we have them.
