Are you still wondering about what Google has in mind for the upcoming press event next week? If ‘Yes’ then we have something interesting for you. We suspect that Google has plans to unveil Android 4.3 Jelly Bean at the event and finally make it official. A most recent evidence confirms the existence of Android 4.3 and at the same time gives us a much closer look at the OS.
Many a times, consumers prefer not to buy second hand smartphones because they might not know the exact reason why the owner is selling them. A number of things could be wrong with the device, and it’s a smart move to avoid risk at times. However when a Google employee sales you his smartphone, you should be more than happy with the deal because there is a very good possibility that you get a lot more than what you paid for.
Recently, a second-hand Google Nexus 4 device sold by a Google employee has detailed about the upcoming Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS. The bright side of the deal was that the Nexus 4 was running on Android 4.3, and it was easy enough to spot the changes that were included in it.
For beginners, there doesn’t seem to be any groundbreaking changes and improvements, at least, not in the build that the Nexus 4 was running on. However a number of new features have been identified, and one of them is related to the dialer. In Android 4.3, the device will automatically suggest phone numbers from your contacts as you dial. It would have done either by matching the digits or using the T9 dial pad to look up names. In addition, the dialer also includes the feature to add pauses when calling a number.
Moreover, Android 4.3 also offers an updated camera app similar to the one present on the Google Edition Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. The OS also makes use of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) in order to connect to compatible wearable devices, hence using up lesser battery. There are changes in the Settings section as well, for instance, apps can turn on Wi-Fi, get a lock on your location and then turn it off again.
