Only a few weeks have passed since the last update of Android, and yet, we started seeing signs of the next version of the mobile OS by Google. By saying few weeks we mean exactly 2. Ever since those 2 weeks the owners of Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 are enjoying the latest version of Jelly Bean, but there is one thing that we want to pay strict attention to – a major Android update is expected to happen this year, and according to many specialists, it will go by the number 5.0.
If we have to predict the usual alphabetical order for updates, released by Android, then it will be completely normal, right after Jelly Bean, a Key Lime Pie 5.0 to be announced. Lucky for us, today we are seeing probably for the first time this version which is running on Nexus 7 and Nexus 4. Both devices have been spotted to be running on brand new version KRS36B which hasn’t been seen before on Android.
As for the alphabetical order of the already available versions – just give it a thought. The first one was Gingerbread – starting with G, and the latest Jelly Bean starting with J. Now, according to most of the rumors circulating through internet, the next version goes by the code name KRS36B, which, as you can notice, starts with K. And thus, we can be more than sure that this is going to be Android’s next major update of a new version that will take the user experience to a whole new level. It is expected to bring some rally major design overhauls into the mobile world.
It doesn’t matter if it will adopt the number 5.0 or 4.4 – one thing is sure – the next version of Android will clearly start with a K. Actually, it was confirmed to go by the name of Key Lime Pie, but as you know, you can expect anything from Google, so we can’t be sure until its official release. So far, we have heard nothing but rumors, but in order to see things for real, we will have to wait next Google I/O.
Hopefully we will see the new version of Android OS running on the long-anticipated Nexus 5 devices, which will be unveiled this October. It will be the predecessor of LG Nexus 4 that hit the streets exactly one year ago – at least those are our expectations! The only thing we can do here is wait – many people are craving for the moment when the next version of Android is going to be released. We will see whether or not it will beat iOS 7 which took the user experience to a whole new level, even though it is still just a Beta version.
