Android 4.4 (KitKat) or 4.5 (Lollipop)?
Android 4/4.5/4: Android KitKat or Lollipop?
The Android OS is getting a major overhaul, and Google is releasing the first version of the new OS to the public this week.
The new operating system comes in two versions: Android 4 and 4.0 (Lipop), and is meant to be a major upgrade from the Android 3.2/3.2.1 and 3.3/3, respectively.
Both are designed to offer a faster, more responsive interface, with Android 4 getting the most of the features and functionality.
But Google is also keen to stress that the Android 4 OS will be compatible with the devices running the older 3.x/3/4/4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating systems, and will not be able to be used by any of the existing 4.x phones, or the newer 5.x (Lumia) or 6.x devices.
Google has already promised to support these devices as long as they support the Android OS.
We know Google has been working on this OS for a while, and has already had a lot of time to work on it, but this is the first major update to the OS that’s meant to bring some features and improvements to the operating system, and we have a feeling that this OS will bring more to the table than its predecessor.
Android 4.3 This is the OS we expect to see when the OS is finally launched, and is expected to be the first OS that will run on both Android smartphones and tablets.
It’s been more than two years since the Android operating system first made its debut, and while the Android platform has changed a lot since then, Android 4 still retains its core functionality and the same familiar Google logo.
A lot of this has been about Android getting a modern design and a modern UI, and a lot more has also been about improving performance and security.
In terms of what we expect from the new Android 4, we’re expecting the most advanced features to be on top of that.
For example, we are expecting to see the ability to quickly switch between apps and the notification centre, as well as the ability for the OS to read the current battery status and save it.
There’s also a new feature called ‘Task Manager’, which we’re looking forward to seeing more of in the future.
With Android 4 running on both phones and tablets, there are a lot fewer features that can be added to the platform, but the fact that there are also a lot less options for developers means that it’s possible for new features to come to the surface very quickly.
And as we mentioned above, there will be a lot to keep track of on the OS, too, with a new version of Google Drive coming along to keep users updated with everything they’re looking at.
While the OS looks to be very similar to the Android 5.0 Lollipop, the new version is expected for a much smaller release, with only the most basic of features and a few extra bells and whistles.
All in all, the Android UI will be significantly different from the previous one, and as a result, the OS will offer a very different user experience, but it’s also expected to deliver a better user experience.
That’s why we expect Android 4 to be more than just an operating system.
This new OS will have a lot going for it, too.
If Google and its partners want to keep Android’s popularity high, it’s important that they keep pushing the envelope, and this new OS is going to be that.
We’re looking to see it in our phones, on our tablets, and in the new Gear VR headset.
