Android 4.3 Confirmed By Google Dev Site Ahead Of Google I/O
If you’re hoping to see Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie at Google I/O later today, then you’re probably going to be very disappointed.
Rumor has it that Google will instead unveil another update to Android 4 Jelly Bean in an effort to give device manufacturers a chance to catch up with their updates — and this has now been confirmed by Google’s developer website.
“Security Enhancement in Android 4.3” was spotted on Google’s developer website just hours ahead of the event. The mention has now been removed, but as Google should know, it’s impossible to completely erase anything posted on the Internet.
Check out the screenshot:
What Android 4.3 may bring is still a bit of a mystery at this point, but The Verge suggests we could see support for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and the OpenGL for Embedded Systems 3.0 graphics specification.
While both of these things would certainly be nice additions, it might be best to try and not get your hopes up for any major changes to Android. We have a feeling this year’s event will be all about a new Google Maps, Google Babel, Google Play Games, and maybe — just maybe — a new Nexus 7.
