According to sources, Google has confirmed that the latest version of Android build that is set to arrive after Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) will be Jelly Bean.
The confirmation came from a “trusted source” who spoke to This is my next. The name will also continue Google’s famous tradition of naming Android builds after sweet treats in alphabetical order. The build’s version number is yet to be confirmed.
The source has also confirmed that Jelly Bean will bring “game-changing stuff” that Google will push in with its release, along with ICS. Nothing, however, has been known for certain.
Elsewhere, new updates said that Jelly Bean is in the running for the name, but the choice hasn’t yet been finalized by Google. It was also added that the updated version may arrive this fall, according to a report by This is my next.
Google’s Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) was made official during the 2011 Google I/O. The build is a combination of Gingerbread and Honeycomb and will release in October or November.
Android Head of Engineering, Mike Claren called it the company’s “most ambitious release to date.” The build’s features include facial recognition and new APIs to reduce fragmentation.
