The world is anxiously waiting on Google to finally launch its next smartphone, the Nexus 5, alongside Android 4.4 KitKat. Given the nature of these announcements, it’s likely that Google will conduct a formal event to unveil them. The company has started sending out invites for an event on October 24th in New York City, but unfortunately, it seems that the event doesn’t have anything to do with these products.
So what does Google plan on announcing at this event? Judging by the invite, it looks like the event will be focused on Google Play. The text on the invitation is certainly vague, it doesn’t offer any hint about what to expect. “Join us for a night out with Google Play. Music, movies, games, and a special performance by Capital Cities,” reads the invite. We’ll just have to wait until October 24th and see what Google has planned. Perhaps it might have something to do with the rumored Play Store refresh, its unlikely that the company will conduct an event just for that, but there’s a possibility that the refresh might be a small part of the festivities. As far as the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat event is concerned, we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope that the invites for that particular event are rolled out in the near future.
