Google I/O 2014 is just a few hours away and new report suggests that the search giant is prepping to unveil the name and key features of the next version of Android operating system at the event.
Sundar Pichai, Chief of Android Division at Google revealed his company’s plans to talk about the next version of Android at this year’s I/O in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. He says that the company decided to unveil the next version of Android operating system at the event because it wants to be more transparent about what it’s doing.
Android has been following the naming protocol of an alphabetical structure. The last version of Android before the current was called Jelly Bean. The current version is KitKat. It’s highly anticipated that the next version will be named with the letter L in the beginning. Earlier rumors suggesting that Android 5.0 will be called Key Lime Pie may also turn out to be true if Google decides to name the next version of Android Lime Pie, dropping the word Key to keep the naming structure with the next alphabet in line.
