While Android 5.0, aka Key Lime Pie, has never been announced, it seems that the OS build might have been caught powering the Google Nexus 4 handset and the Google Nexus 7 tablet. A developer, “dknandiraju”, posted a list of his devices running Chromium. The list showed devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy S III running on build versions beginning with the letter “J”. In Google-speak, that means that those devices were powered by Jelly Bean, either Android 4.1 or Android 4.2.
So when we take a look at the build versions powering the Google Nexus 4 and the Google Nexus 7, we see that both of those devices are running build versions beginning with the letter “K”. This could be the first sign that Key Lime Pie is going to be powering the next Nexus smartphone which could be ready to greet the world around the time of the next holiday shopping season. There is some speculation that a version of the LG G2 could be the next Nexus phone.
Originally, Key Lime Pie was expected to be introduced at this year’s Google I/O developer conference, but Google was allegedly asked to delay its release by manufacturers who still hadn’t updated their devices to Android 4.2.2.
