Google has launched Android OS a few years ago, and now it it installed in so many devices around the world that is impossible to count it. Android has been a success and manufacturers found it really easy to sell their products with it. Now Google is expected to launch the next version of Android, as the current one is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. People are expecting a desert starting with letter ‘k’ to name the following OS, and Key Lime Pie seems to be the pick.

While people are expecting Android 5.0, Artem Russakovskii from Android Police has been able to identify a few devices on their server that were using a newer version of Jelly Bean, version 4.3. Apparently after tracking the IPs from the server log, it led to a few Google employees that have hinted in the past of a new OS. Android 4.3 was installed on a Nexus 7 and Nexus 4, and apparently carries build number JWR23B. As you can see this starts with the letter ‘J’, which stands for ‘Jelly Bean’.

So Google has decided to continue improving their Jelly Bean operating system, while letting us wait for an entirely new version. Of course, Android 5.0 will probably come with huge changes, as it happened when Android 4.0 was introduced. The most probable scenario is that Samsung will launch their Android 5.0 with their latest phone, and Android 4.3 will be released in the following weeks.
