The first Android Jelly Bean teasers hit the the web in February 2012, but now that Key Lime Pie release date is only a couple of months away, there are no details about the next iteration of Google’s mobile operating system.
Well, today we get to learn more about Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie release date, as the rumors are indicating it will be launched in Q2 2013, most likely at Google’s I/O 2013 event scheduled to debut on May 15th.
We’ve also discovered that Qualcomm chipset manufacturer will launch a new processor by the end of the year, optimized to deliver the best performance on Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
It’s clear yet what features will bring the new version of Google’s mobile OS, but it seems that the first terminals running Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie out of the box will arrive in Q3 2013.
The Android 5.0 update will arrive on the current Nexus models only weeks after its May debut. Qualcomm might develop a KLP-optimized APQ8084 chipset, a quad-core 2.3 GHz with Adreno 420 GPU.
I wonder whether the first Nexus terminal running on Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will be a tablet or a smartphone, given that the rumor mill is talking about an alleged LG Nexus 5, even though I find it hard to believe that Google will team-up again with LG for a new smartphone, due to the stock problems of the Nexus 4.
Anyway, it seems that Samsung is in cards for manufacturing a new Nexus tablet, while Sony or Motorola might develop the next-gen Nexus Smartphone.
