Google's Android 4.4 KitKat has had its fair share of hitches with some Nexus users complaining of broken Exchange problem and the lack of Google Experience Launcher service for Nexus devices other than Nexus 5.

According to 9To5Google, the Android maker is apparently developing its first KitKat update, Android 4.4.1, to address some of these concerns with Nexus devices. 9To5Google analytics reveal server log entries from a number of devices running Android 4.4.1, which are reportedly originating from Google's homeland in Santa Clara, California.

The analytics graph clearly depicts a huge increase in the hit count from Android 4.4.1 devices Including Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 over the last week. The report further suggests that the new KitKat update is currently limited to a handful of Nexus devices including the Nexus 10.

In related news, the popular Android modder, @LlabTooFeR, has reported on Twitter that the new Android 4.4.1 update bearing the build number KOT49E is already in the making and will release shortly for HTC One Google Play Edition.

Though it is still unclear what the Android 4.4.1 update will offer, it is expected to port performance improvements, bug fixes, and battery life enhancements. With Google Play Edition devices set to receive the new KitKat update first, the Nexus devices are likely to follow suit.
