Many people were talking over the internet about the new version of Android being the Key Lime Pie 5.0 but a recent testing from Google has shown enough evidence that the next version of Android might be 4.3, which is indeed an update over Jelly Bean 4.2, does bearing the same name convention.
The news came first online on a site where few people saw Android 4.3 JWR23B in the site’s server log indicating that Google is testing the new Android version. The first letter of the build number always hints to the name of that build, which in this case is J for Jelly Bean.
There might be a chance that someone changed the log entry of the site and allegedly entered the entries but it is not the case here. According to the site, when the IPs were traced back to their source, it was found out that IPs were pinging to the Google employees who are closely related to the Android development. This range of IPs had also been involved in previous leaks and rumors related to the unreleased versions of Android.
Next comes the build number, JWR23B. This build number is traced by Chromium bug tracker many times which proves the identity of the build number and once again relates it to the Google.
So, you might be thinking, what will happen to the so called Key Lime Pie 5.0? Well the above evidence proves that it is not going to be launched any time soon. Since the next build shown is the Android 4.3. But if it happens to be true, then we might see the Android 5.0 by the end of this year maybe. If history is any indication, Google just does not declare a version number to any of its Android versions which is still in building process. So if we see it from that perspective, then the Android 4.3 isn’t far from getting released and it is expected to arrive within a month.
Google I/O is just one month away and it’s the perfect time to announce the next Android version at the conference. Many are expecting this from Google and mostly suggested Android 5.0 to be announced at the event but in light of recent events, it would be Android 4.3

What!? This isn’t fair. I’m waiting since ages for Android 5.0. Wish Google brings Key Lime Pie and not another better version of Jelly Bean. :-(

It is still too soon to upgrade to Android 5.0 but I believe we can expect its release by the end of this year. :)
