Android 4.4 wallpapers available to download ahead of update

A collection of Android 4.4 wallpapers have been made available for download prior to the KitKat themed software being rolled out to existing devices.

With the latest iteration of Google’s mobile operating system having officially launched yesterday, October 31, aboard the Google Nexus 5, a selection of the OS’s new themes have been ripped out and posted online available for download.

Although the first wave of an Android 4.4 update is not set to be rolled out until “the coming weeks,” those eager to give their smartphone or tablet a KitKat themed appearance can do so now, with eight Android 4.4 wallpapers made available.

While Google has yet to make the Android 4.4 wallpapers available for all, the folks over at Phandroid have already pulled the images from the Google Nexus 5 and made the themes available for all.

Currently exclusive to the Google Nexus 5, an Android 4.4 update will be introduced to a range of devices “in the coming weeks.” Speaking at last night’s launch, Google revealed that the Google Nexus 4, Google Nexus 7 and Google Nexus 10 would be the first devices to receive the software patch.

Also on the phase one hit list is the Google Play editions of both the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. Standard S4 and One owners will face a more lengthy wait before their phones are upgrade to the latest Android operating system.

A selection of the downloadable Android 4.4 wallpapers can be viewed below.
