Ahead of the much-anticipated debut of Android 4.4 KitKat are even more shots of Google's next flagship Nexus phone and the OS update.

Italian tech site Tutto Android has an extensive gallery of the device with notes on what's new or different. That list includes tweaked voice activated search, a new camera shortcut from the lock screen, a different app drawer, and a camera that appears to use image stabilization.

Google announced the name of its next Android OS update last month , surprising some by licensing the popular candy bar namesake from Nestle. It follows July's release of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which was introduced in late July alongside Google's Nexus 7 tablet.

The photos come a week after an extensive leak from tech blog GadgetHelpLine, which posted a gallery of 4.4 shots showing new features like wireless display support, cellular phone plan settings, and new printing and payment options.

Google's expected to take the full wraps off the OS update at an event this month.
