Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is expected to be the next major Android update. After missing its speculated launch date at Google I/O conference, the update is now expected by the end of this year, along with the next generation Nexus 5.
It’s no secret that Google is working on the next major update but we haven’t seen anything about it just yet. However, as of late, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie has been spotted running on the Nexus 7 and Nexus 4. A user of Chromium Bug Tracker spotted an Android build, KRS36B, running on said devices.
Interestingly, both of these devices received Android 4.3 Jelly Bean recently with build JSS15J and JWR66V. If you don’t know, the first letter in the build number usually refers to the Android version currently running on the device. For example, the letter “J” refers to Jelly Bean and if we assume that Google will follow the same number pattern than “K” in this build should refer to Key Lime Pie.
Unfortunately, there is no other information about the upcoming software apart from the build number on the reported Chromium bug tracker. But if it’s true, the leaks should start pouring in by the end of this month. Our guess is that Google might wait for the next Nexus device, Nexus 5, to ship with the new Key Lime Pie update.
What are your guesses?
