Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie Delayed, Next Android Version To Be Android 4.3

Google’s I/O 2013 conference is just a month away, and if history is to bore some fruit we are in for seeing something new at this event again. That ‘something new’ usually translates to a newer version of Android or a Nexus device. Scratching the Nexus, those waiting for a new version of Android are really in for a bit of disappointment.

According to the damning evidence by Android Police, Google is indeed working on a newer version of Android, but it’s not Key Lime Pie or Android 5.0. Instead Google is set to take the Jelly Bean race a bit more up the hill with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The build number is JWR23B, with the starting ‘J’ moniker representing Jelly Bean builds. If that wasn’t enough for an evidence, we also got to know that this particular update has reportedly shown up in server logs and was successfully traced back to Google employees.


There’s still no evidence if Google will delay Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, multiple appearances by Android 4.3 also suggest the same. It’s not that Google will announce two Android versions at their conference, because its pure crazy. It seems Android 4.3 Jelly Bean would be the highlight of the show rather than the highly rumored Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. With that, the highly rumored X-Phone by Motorola is also expected to make a debut at the conference.

As for the Key Lime Pie update, it seems it’s farther away then we all expected, maybe next near? Too far away but oh well, it’s not like Android 4xx Jelly Bean is not already awesome. But to save itself some bashing, Google might make sure that Key Lime Pie is a real game changer.
