Google hatches out a new version of its smartphone platform every now and then, and you all know that for sure.
It’s been only a bunch of months since they rolled out the latest version Android Ice Cream Sandwich. While many of the capable devices on the platform are yet to make their migration to this latest platform, hints suggest that the next entrant Android Jelly Bean is almost at the door.
Though there has been a lot of debate and confusion among Android fans about the identity of the upcoming update, as many believe that Jelly Bean is actually next gen platform version named Android 5.0. But a majority argue that it is just an incremental update to ICS named Android 4.1.
However, with a new development, Google has unofficially confirmed that the upcoming update is Android 4.1, not Android 5.0 and that it will see the light of the day on the Samsung Galaxy HSPA+ device.
The surprise confirmation came from Google Play store when shoppers from the US tried purchasing unlocked Nexus devices. The website mentioned the Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ device as ‘the latest smartphone from Google to be the first phone with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean’.
Though unclear due to low resolution, an image of the said device was also spotted on the page, which shows a transparent search bar and other app icons.
However, an official confirmation is already on the way, since Google is expected to unveil the new platform in the upcoming Google I/O event scheduled to take place at San Francisco next week. Stay tuned.
