Did the developers scale down the textures or what?

I thought it was never possible but now it is!

uh

You do know that the /data and /system partitions are separate, right?

The 180MB you are talking about is presumably the storage space in /data. However, as you know, the system itself is installed in /system. The /system partition has almost 40MB more space than the /data partition (~220MB). That way, the KK system is able to be installed, just that there is not much space left in /system, with about 20-30MB left in the /system partition after first boot. Also, 90MB of /data is also already taken up on first boot, so you can guess how memory-consuming KK can be.

There are a few new devices launched like celkon-campus-a35k or Karbon A50S
Celkon phone sports a 3.5-inch HVGA (320x480p) display and comes packed with 1GHz processor, 256MB RAM, 512MB inbuilt storage (expandable up to 32GB), a 3.2-megapixel main camera, a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) snapper on the front and a 1400 mAh battery.

seems like there is still scope for galaxy -y (as we can still over clock the cpu to 1.2 ghz) to have kitkat...

I would like to correct you, we cannot overclock to 1.2 GHz.
Kernels like Merruk show 1.2 GHz, but it is purely placebo, not real overclock.

2nd thing we already have kitkat at 832MHz.

And there is no AOSP Kitkat 4.4.x build YET (10th July, 2014) for SGY.
You can get CyanogenMod 11 if you want. But it is not fully stable right now.

Galaxy mini 5570 has many kitkat roms and they fit in the same 180 /data and 220 /system and very good for daily use, this rom needs to be first stable, then look abot decreasing consumed memory
