LG G2 spotted running Android 4.4 KitKat in purported video; Gold variant tipped
LG finally revealed plans for rolling out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the flagship smartphone, the G2, over-the-air in December last year. However, the South Korean handset maker only confirmed plans for the Korean market and is yet-to-reveal plans for rolling out the Android KitKat update globally.

Now a YouTube user named, Ericsmissingteeth has posted a video which is alleged to show the LG G2 running the Android 4.4 KitKat. PhoneArena spotted the video first and claims it has been recorded via Android KitKat's screen record feature. Notably, the 3-minute long video purportedly reveals the LG G2 with a completely overhauled interface.

Some of the new features seen in the video running on top of the LG G2 include a tweaked notifications bar; new Printing option in the settings, and the default camera app and browser now supporting full-screen modes. It's worth pointing out that the new LG interface seen running on top of the LG G2 is quite very similar to the current UI seen on the device.

Notably, the Android 4.4 KitKat iteration brings some new features such as the translucent menu bar, which is located at the bottom of the screen; a new dialler and caller ID feature; a unified Hangouts messaging app; smarter Google Now integration; step counter and detector, and support for screen recording.

In addition, a Taiwanese publication has spotted a Gold variant of the flagship smartphone, the G2. According to the site, the LG G2 Gold variant (16GB) will be available at (14,900 Taiwanese dollar) roughly Rs. 30,500, while the 32GB variant will be available at (16,900 Taiwanese dollar) roughly Rs. 34,600. As of now, there is no word whether the Gold LG G2 will be available in Korea only or will hit other markets as well.

Notably, handset manufacturers like Apple and HTC have already launched handsets in Gold avatars and if the rumour comes out to be true, LG might join soon.
