Rumors of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean have been surfacing in the tech industry for quite some time now. A recent tweet now hints that Google will announce something big on June 6, probably the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update.
Most of the current smartphones and tablets are running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and only a select few devices are running on the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Many market observers had hoped for the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie to show up at Google I/O 2013 but it did a no-show. And now, with rumors of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean appearing very frequently, it could indicate that Google will not reveal Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie anytime soon.
A tweet from Jean-Baptiste Queru, the technical lead for Google's Android Open Source Project says, "The future will be better tomorrow." The tweet doesn't indicate if Google will unveil Android 4.3 Jelly Bean but the company is definitely looking to announce something big on June 6.
A previous Android and Me report indicated that Google will launch Android 4.3 Jelly Bean along with the white version of Nexus 4. However, the white version of the Nexus 4 is already out but no official release date of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is known. There is no doubt that Nexus devices will get the taste of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean software first and rumors also suggest that a Nexus 4 has been spotted in Thailand running on the latest software update.
A recent Technos Amigos report also said that all HTC flagships and high-end smartphones released in 2012 and the latter part of 2011 will receive the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update by Q4 of 2013. The website also included a list of HTC devices which are expected to get Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update.
Popular handsets like Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, and more should be second in line, after Nexus devices, to get Android 4.3 Jelly Bean but we will have to wait and see what Google actually announces on June 6.
