Sources close to VR-Zone reveal that Google has decided to release the fifth-gen Android by late October this year. However, Google is set to launch a minor update of the latest Android v4.2.2. Jelly Bean before that.
The Android Jelly Bean v4.3 update will be a minor release by Google prior to launching the Android Key Lime Pie. Previously, there were rumors that Google will be launching Android v5.0 at the I/O Conference, but nothing like that actually happened. Recently, news has come up claiming that a mild upgrade to Android v4.2.2 will be rolled out to Nexus 4.
Fans are hugely anticipating an Android bug enjoying a key lime pie, but the developers have not confirmed anything yet. Previously, a set of rumors evolved surrounding Motorola X Phone and Android Key Lime Pie, claiming that Motorola X will be the first to feature Android 5.0.
The launch date of Android v5.0 also lines up with that of Nexus 5. VR-Zone reveals that Android 5 KLP will be a highly optimized OS. It will be able to operate sensitive devices. Sources say that Android KLP will be compatible with devices featuring as little as 512MB RAM. It seems that Google has organized a broad spectrum for its upcoming OS.
On the other hand, reports reveal that Android 4.3 will be rolled out to a number of devices by August. The mildly upgraded OS will support OpenGL 3D graphics and energy-efficient Bluetooth. Samsung Galaxy Nexus was observed in some snapshots at the Bluetooth SIG logs. It was reported that the device has been examined on compatibility with Android 4.3. A series of HTC phones ranging from HTC One, HTC Butterfly, One XL, Desire HD to One X+ are standing in a line to be upgraded to Android 4.3.
Android’s 5th birthday will be arriving in October this year, which seems a convenient excuse for Google to launch its 5th gen OS in October.
