Rumored Android 4.3 to Be Announced at Google I/O – Still Jelly Bean
It would seem Google is not rushing to release a new version of Android and to be honest there are a couple of strong reasons that may lie behind this ultimate decision. Last year the Nexus devices have managed to score a bunch of JB updates fixing all sorts of features and bringing a lot of new features.
It is since long well known that only a handful of devices, with the Google Nexus ones leading the pack, manage to score the very latest version of the Android OS. This scenario is also accurate for the newest flagship devices that usually get announced each year not managing to provide the latest version of the OS as Google intended.
For this year’s Google I/O event many have been hoping to get a new release of the Android OS, reaching version 5.0 Key Lime Pie. However the most recent news seem to disagree, as Google in apparently working on Android 4.3 – still Jelly Bean. References from sources inside Google that have access to the code have managed to extract the info in regards to what may be the future of the popular mobile OS. And if that is the case would it be so bad. There are still manufacturers that haven’t updated their devices past ICS, even past Gingerbread.
