As you probably know, Google is working at the next generation of Android, as we are currently still stuck with Jelly Bean 4.3. The name that is expected to be given to the next OS version is 'Key Lime Pie' even though this is not 100% certain yet. If you didn't notice all Android versions come in alphabetical order (i.e 'Gingerbread; Honeycomb; Ice Cream Sandwich; Jelly Bean) and the next in line is 'K'. A new bug report on the Chronium Project shows a new Android build, version KRS36B. This has been spotted on a Nexus 4 and a Nexus 7 also. This could be a mistake, but otherwise it only indicates that Samsung is working on the next Android. The reason why we believe this is that the build number starts with the letter 'K' and since the first Android version all build numbers started with the first letter of the Operating System's name. For example a recent build numbers for Jelly Bean 4.3 is JWR66V. This is one of the first profs of Android 5.0, and we should expect even more to come soon. We don't have any information on what the next Android will come with, so we can't help you with that just yet, although we'll keep you updated with the latest news.
