Recent reports indicate that Google is still developing and improving its current version of Android operating system – Android Jelly Bean. Reports say that Google is now working in order to come up with a newer version of Android Jelly Bean which will be versioned as Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
We all have been eagerly waiting for the next-gen Android operating system from Google to be unveiled. Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie has been in the talks since a long time and rumors even said that the operating system could be unveiled at the Google I/O event this year in the month of May.
We were curious as why has Google not said anything yet, why has Google not made any official announcement regarding Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, but now we might have the answer. The answer seems to be simple but we don’t really want to believe it – Google is still working on Android Jelly Bean, and latest information shows that the next Android OS will most probably be Android 4.3 not 5.0
If you are wondering why we are saying that Google is still working on Android 4.3 and not Android 5.0, then let us answer. According to the information provided, Google is testing a new version of Android OS which has been found in server logs as Android 4.3 JWR23B. Now technically speaking, the first letter of the build is always the same as the first letter of the Android version name, meaning that the new update is also a part of Jelly Bean.
Server logs can be easily faked and hence one might say that this information has just been made up, but there is no possibility of that either. On tracing, it was found that these IP ranges takes us directly to Google. There have been 2 different IP ranges that correspond to Google employees. Interesting enough, these IP ranges were among the same that had previously given out clues about unreleased versions of Android OS before they were announced.
So it seems that Google is almost ready with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and we might even get to see this new version of OS at Google I/O this year. But on the contrary, there is a strong possibility that Google might also unveil the next-gen Android OS, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. Let us wait and watch.
