KikKat posted a tweet with a picture showing KitKat chocolate bars stacked up in the formation reading ” This is it.” “This is it” is the name of the popular Michale Jackson movie that released on October 28, 2009. That’s why the OS could be launched on October 28.

The leaked screenshots show a new Settings menu option for “Printing”. There’s also an option for Payments and Wireless Display within Settings. This means a new wireless NFC payment system will be added to the OS and it will no longer be a third-party application feature.

The leaked images also show some new photo editing prompts like Tilt-Shift, Center Focus, Negative and Posterize. The new camera interface adds Instagram-style filters that will allow users to preview final version of images.

Users will have option to save images as PDF files on KitKat. The functionalities too are reported to have been expanded to include editing paper size, orientation, number of copies and colours before printing images and PDF files directly on a local printer.

Some reports have stated that Google Now will have the ‘always-on’ functionality of Moto X in Android 4.4 and may accept commands in several languages, not just English. Android 4.4 may also introduce SMS function to Google Hangouts app. Android 4.4 is also reportedly much lighter and faster than Android 4.3 and previous versions.

Android 4.4 KitKat will come with pre-loaded apps like Google Drive and Google Keep.

Google is also expected to launch Nexus 5 smartphone and Nexus 10 tablet.
