Alongside Google' announcement earlier today that its next Android OS - Android 4.4 - will be dubbed Android KitKat, Google published a promo video of the announcement showing the Android KitKat statue getting installed at Google's front lawn in Mountain View, California.
Interestingly, nearly 40 seconds into the video, a Google employee is seen taking photoswith a phone that has a horizontal Nexus branding on it. A closer look will reveal a larger camera lens, a matte finish, and even what appears to be an LG logo on it.
As of this writing, Google seems to have taken down the video on YouTube. But tech sites like The Verge was able to obtain a copy of it. Take this with a grain of salt in hand though, as Google is loving the spur of the moment by tickling our minds. LG has declined to comment on the report.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
