This year we didn’t see a new Android version debut at Google I/O 2013, having to live with updates toMaps, Google+ and Hangouts, the new Play Music All Access and the new Play Game Services platforms.
Google went on to show a lot of improvements for developers that didn’t require a new version of Android, but despite welcoming the new stuff we were slightly disappointed to not see the next Android release in action. Especially after learning that some devices are already rocking it.
However, version 4.3 (whether it will be called Android Jelly Bean again or Key Lime Pie) might not be too late to the party. The latest rumors suggest that it will be unveiled on June 10 or in about three weeks time. Sources are pointing out that it will feature Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) support, OpenGL for Embedded Systems 3.0 graphics and app data synchronization.
Furthermore the alleged June 10 event might also bring the white Nexus 4, which we’ve already seen pictured and even previewed on video.
Here’s hoping the rumors are true as that would mean we won’t have as long as we feared for a new Android release.
