It’s been a littler over a year since Android 4.1 Jelly Bean first made its way to Nexus devices. Not quite a huge leap from the Ice Cream Sandwich that debuted in the Galaxy Nexus, Jelly Bean merely patched up and addressed some of Android’s UI inconsistencies, improving the user experience overall. When it comes to the next big jump in Google’s mobile OS, all eyes are pointed to the next Nexus device which, going by Google’s current track record, will most likely release towards the end of this year.
Never officially announced, it’s looking like Google’s next Android dessert will be named Key Lime Pie. The upcoming version of the Android OS just got a little more real today after build number KRS36B was caught running on both the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7. Developer “dknandiraju” posted a list of his devices used in testing Chromium, where a few Galaxy devices running Jelly Bean were mentioned, along with the Nexus 4 and 7 running this mysterious new build number.
For those unaware, Jelly Bean builds start with the letter designation of J, with the most recent being JWR66V (Android 4.3). This means these devices could have been running Key Lime Pie (the specific Android number has yet to be determined), and other than that… well, not much else. Guess it’s just exciting to catch a glimpse of Key Lime Pie, no matter how small. Then again, perhaps we need to get out more.
