We’re just minutes away from Google’s IO keynote in San Francisco, and a couple of nuggets have landed in our laps ahead of schedule. For starters, a leaked developers’ page (it’s been removed, but Google still has a cached copy) makes mention of Android 4.3. We already guessed Google would be introducing a new version of Android at today’s show, but it’s nice to be reassured.

In that update, we’re expecting to see the “Game Center of Android.” That particular feature has been rumored for quite some time, and recent Google Play Services updates make mention of the service in brief. Even more confirmation has come in the way of a changelog from a game update in the Play Store, with the update mentioning that “Google Play Games achievements” have been added.

We’re less than 5 minutes (as of the time of this posting) away from the big unveiling, so stay tuned to Phandroid for all the latest, and don’t forget you can follow along via video using the embed you see here or on our homepage!
