First Android 4.4 KitKat images show mobile payments option

New dialer, mobile data plan management spotted in photographs

The first images of the next version of Android may have been revealed. Photographs of a smartphone running what is claimed to be an earlier build of Android 4.4, complete with pre-KitKat images representing the previous Key Lime Pie name, appears to hint at a few of the features that will come in the next version of the mobile operating system.

The shots from Gadget Helpline show a new printing option in the settings menu, possibly via Google Cloud Print. Mobile payments makes an appearance in the settings as well, and will likely have Google Wallet integration. The Manage Mobile Plan setting could possibly allow the user to dictate how their smartphone uses cellular data, and could possibly direct users to their carrier's online account management system.

Superficially, there appears to be little in the way of major changes to the interface. A refreshed dialing screen, notification bar icons in white, and extra photo editing options also appear in the build.

Though the build appears to be dating back to late August, it is possible that the eventual final version heading to devices could have even more changes than the ones shown in the photographs.
