According to reports, the update to Android 4.4 (KitKat), Android 4.4.1, could roll out soon, as Google is reportedly testing the update.

9to5Google spotted the tweet and looked deeper into the news, reporting, “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.”

It adds, “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.”
