Android 5.0 Jelly Bean to launch in Q3?
Fresh rumors hint at the launch of Jelly Bean in Q3 instead of Q2
The Android 5.0 Jelly Bean will launch in Q3 as opposed to Q2 claim sources.
Not too long ago, we had heard of rumours hinting at the second quarter, however, the latest talks tell a different story.
The latest buzz in the grapevine indicates that Google is planning for a Q3 release for its next major Android update, the Android 5.0 Jelly Bean.
Digitimes quoted its unnamed sources as having said, ‘the rapid shift of OS may not be healthy for the development of the Android ecosystem’.
It does kind of make sense, as the latest available Android 4.0 version has not boomed to great heights from its onset until now.
The statistics indicate that out of all the Android phones currently in use, the Ice Cream Sandwich features on barely between 2-3 per cent of the Android handsets.
Moreover, bgr claims that Google’s own online version tracker indicates even a lesser number by quoting a figure of just 1.6 per cent.
Nevertheless, the Android 4.0 ICS is gradually becoming one of the most sought-after operating system now.
While an increasing number of major players like HTC and Sony are planning to roll out their new gadgets with the ICS OS, many have already begun offering the latest version upgrade to their existing devices.
As per digitimes, its sources believe that the adoption of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System has just ‘begun to gain momentum’.
The same sources have also mentioned, ‘recent market speculation also indicates that Google may release its new platform, Android 5.0 (Jelly Bean), in the third quarter of 2012. ’
