Android Jelly Bean 4.3 In Progress, 5.0 May Join Later Than Expected

Android 5.0 which has been read number of times on the forums dubbed by the name Key Lime Pie is still not ready for release at this Google I/O 2013. Android Police reported that they have found some server logs which indicate that Google is working on Jelly Bean again.

Jelly Bean was announced by Google last summer at the Google I/O 2012 with Nexus 7 and Nexus Q and with the Nexus 4 they announced another update to Jelly Bean with a version upgrade to 4.2.2. As per these server logs, this time it will be Jelly Bean Android 4.3 for both smartphone as well as tablet. There has been traces within the logs, indicating various devices running Android 4.3 build JWR23B including Nexus 4 and Nexus 7. Furthermore, the IP addresses of these devices were tracked back to the Google Campus.

Android Jelly Bean

As per data revealed by Google every month, by this month of April Android 4.1 and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean are now on 25 percent of all Android devices which is a good hop over 16.5 percent in the month of March. On the other hand, Ice Cream Sandwich that is Android 4.0.x is on 29.3 percent of the devices, a marginal increase of 0.7 percent as compared to the previous month.

The past rumours had suggested that Google will be rolling out Android 5.0, which would be dubbed Key Lime Pie or maybe some dessert starting with the alphabet K at the Google I/O but it looks like this won’t happen at this I/O, maybe sometime later this year. Obviously there will be some improvements and bug fixes with the number update and thats what is required now.
