    This got me thinking and I couldn't find it on the dev website or android.com, but anybody know what the base system requirements are for 4.4? I want to know because of the 512MB spec for budget phones. Like processor? A certain screen size it can work with at minimum? Required hardware features?

    Would love for someone to point me the right direction. Thanks.

    I'm not sure that a lot of that technical data is released yet. If you are referring to older, legacy devices, then it's likely not possible to get those running KitKat, simply because the various drivers and hardware need to be compatible with one another. This was a major issue with older devices trying to run ICS, which needed hacks to run properly.

    This is great news for "lower spec'd" devices in the future.

    If I am not wrong, that information hasn't been released. What I do know is that the minimum requirement for ram is 512mb. And like srkmagnus said, older devices will not be supported even if they have the 512mb of ram... But if you have a popular phone that isn't not that old and had the minimum requirements, it will probably get supported...
