While the majority of Android users might still be a version or two behind despite some impressive upgrade numbers for KitKat, Google appears to be prepping the first update to KitKat with Android 4.4.1. A look at our analytics shows hits from a number of devices running 4.4.1 originating from Google’s home turf in Santa Clara, California. Above we can see a huge increase in hits from 4.4.1 devices over the last week.

Among the devices are both phones and tablets including the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus 7:


The Android 4.4 KitKat update is still only available to handful of devices including the Nexus devices mentioned above and the Nexus 10, while it’s slowly rolling out for Moto X users and Google Play Edition phones. We aren’t the first ones to notice 4.4.1, Gottabemobile echoes a rumor from HTC ROM developer LLabTooFeR that the HTC One Google Play Edition will get an update to 4.4.1 (KOT49E) in the “near future.”
