android 4.3 jelly bean

A Nexus 4 running build number JWR45B was spotted at the Thailand Mobile Expo recently labeled as Android version 4.3, suggesting the update to the OS could be right around the corner. While the validity of the sighting remains unconfirmed, we do get three shots of what could be the next version of Android: the Jelly Bean easter egg (confirming the update won’t be Key Lime Pie), the About Phone screen, and a slightly tweaked camera UI.

It appears that Android 4.3 won’t come with a major design overhaul in tow and rather will be the sort of incremental update that was the move from 4.1 to 4.2. Major platform changes aren’t expected until Android 5.0, which could still be on track for a release this year, though closer to the holiday season.
