With a couple of months left until Google I/O event in May, where the search engine giant is expected to unveil Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. New details about Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie have recently hit the web after Qualcomm leak.
Qualcomm has accidently posted the company’s roadmap for 2013, which contains information about smartphones running on Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which will hit the market in Q2 2013. There are no details about the new features or about the improvements brought by the new operating system, but the launch time frame seems pretty accurate. Rumor has it that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie release date was set for Google I/O 2013 event, which will take place next May.
At the previous Google I/O events, the Mountain View-based company announced the versions of its mobile operating system, then the updates were rolled out to the Nexus devices. As the folks at Pocket Lint note, after the Qualcomm roadmap hit the web, the US-based chipset maker tried to determine the publications that covered the article to remove the screenshot from their websites.
Qualcomm’s behavior makes us think that what we saw was the real deal and that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will be unveiled at Google I/O.
The rumor mill speculates that the guys at Google will also launch a new smartphone synchronized with the debut of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, member of the Nexus tribe.
Other sources are indicating that Motorola is also working at an Android 5.0-powered smartphone, unofficially dubbed X Phone. Rumor has it that X Phone will come with a full HD 5-inch display and a design reminiscent of RAZR M.
Anyway, we’d recommend you to take the rumors with a pinch of salt and wait until the official confirmation arrives until rushing into conclusions. But since everybody’s speculating about Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, please let us know what do you expect from the new iteration of Google’s mobile platform.
