Nexus 5 details round-up: here on Halloween Eve

With the Nexus 5 / KitKat release nearly upon it, it's become time again to take a look at what we'll likely be seeing from Google as early as tomorrow. With Google's team-up with Nestle for the release of the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system upgrade - alongside several tips from independent sources - it only makes sense for Google to make a show of their release of "treats" tomorrow.

Android 4.4 KitKat screens leak for Nexus 7

It's time to have a peek at Android 4.4 KitKat in its dualing near-complete edition for the masses on a Nexus 7 tablet from 2013. This version of Android is shown with a couple of clues as to its origins, the first being a glimpse of the software's single Easter Egg, one similar to each previous version of Android in its access through a hidden tap in a Settings menu deep within the device. Here you'll find the codename "Android KeyLimePie" sitting below a rather obviously referenced Nesle logo - saying Android instead of the candy company's original title.

There's little doubt that Google will be releasing additional information about Android 4.4 KitKat soon, and if rumor holds this week, they'll be doing so with smartwatch functionality in tow. The watch is on the rise - with rumors of an Apple iWatch persisting through the past several months, the Samsung Galaxy Gear appearing in stores this month, and Sony already having released their second Smartwatch product this year.

If you saw the "always listening" feature on the Moto X this summer and wondered if it would be coming to all Android devices soon, you may be in luck: a leaked build of the next version of Android, 4.4 KitKat, has a clue.
