A YouTube video shows off Android 4.4 KitKat running on the LG G2, but don’t expect to see any massive changes to the phone’s user interface with the update.

The nearly 3-minute video uses the new scree recording feature of KitKat to show off the update to the LG G2. Without the section of the video that specially shows the Android version number as 4.4, however, you might mistake it for a video of the G2 running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

There are a few changes to the UI of the LG G2 with the Android 4.4. update, but they’re all very minor. The icons in the status bar are all the same light grey color, for example. The update also seems to rearrange some elements of the notification tray while adding a new print option.

LG also implemented the new fullscreen mode in the camera and browser apps in the G2 running KitKat. Fullscreen mode gets rid of the black (or white, depending on your settings on the phone) bar around the virtual buttons. The feature lets you see more content on a website or more objects in your frame in the camera app.

The Android 4.4 KitKat update started rolling out to Korean LG G2 units in December, but it hasn’t spread to everyone just yet. This video is the closest some G2 owners will get to KitKat for a little while, depending on the speed of the global rollout. If nothing else, this video proves the update is real, and will theoretically reach other models soon.

As you still waiting for the update to Android 4.4 KitKat on your phone?
