Default G2 4.4 info, 20+ screenshots

The 4.4 update for the F320 has been leaked in some chinese forums (no direct download link available though).

From what I can understand from the source, the 4.4 update makes the system way more fluid than the current version.
There's also ART, cloud printing, an improved car mode and screenshots manager.
The date bar under quick toggles now sits on top.

The press relase at the bottom states that an update is to happen within this month. It's unclear if this is for all markets.

For more screenshots and source, please follow this link (in simplified chinese)

Translated press release found at chip.de as follows:

Update from 16:12:13
Good news for the LG G2 : The South Korean company LG Electronics has now confirmed officially, 4.4 still distribute an update to Android this month. According to Jong-seok Park, CEO of LG Electronics Mobile, owner of a G2 do not have to wait until the end of the first quarter of 2014, Android's newest operating system accordingly. As it has been said (see original message below). As users of the LG Forum zpsjbbs report, the rollout of Android 4.4 has already begun. Subsequently, the update will now be rolled out to other markets. The German Press Agency has expressed not started on request from CHIP Online to extradition.

Original message from 11/29/13
The LG G2 in 2014, an update to Android 4.4 Kitkat received by the end of the first quarter. This is confirmed by the manufacturer, to the CHIP Online.

LG G2: No Android 4.3
LG confirms that the G2 will get an update to Android 4.3. The software version is simply skipped. For the manufacturer, it probably is not worth it to provide for the short transition time Android 4.3. If and when other devices such as the Optimus G an update be received, the manufacturer leaves in the dark. (mwi / csg)

Oh I love this phone, Stock ROM is great , smooth and battery life is incredible fo rme andmy use.
Couple of things I would like to see is of-course what Samsung has.
(1) Multitasking pull tab from the side (do not much care about three fingers gesture)
(2) Split Screen so you have app on the top and bottom, Drop the app from above side tab.
(3) Create a contact from memo.
(4) Soft buttons disappear when not in use. ( guess I prefer HW butons so I have more screen space).
