As the date of Google I/O nears, rumors related to the next version of Android are taking every possible twist and turn.
People have been waiting to see a brand new version of the operating system at the Google event, as earlier reports anticipated the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, but suddenly hope of that has vanished.
Recently, speculation is rife that Google is not going to launch the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie at I/O; instead it will launch another version of Jelly Bean. The reports do disappoint people that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will continue to run on many Android-based devices, but there are other users who are very happy with the news.
Owners of the Android devices running on dual-core processors are now seeing the arrival of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean as one more chance of getting another software update.
An earlier report from SamMobile disclosed that the Android 4.5 Key Lime Pie will not support the devices running on dual-core processors and only the devices running on quad-core processors will get the next Android version.
According to the report, these are the Samsung devices that are listed for the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie:
GT-I9300 - Galaxy S3
GT-I9305 - Galaxy S3 LTE
GT-I9500 - Galaxy S4
GT-I9505 - Galaxy S4 LTE
GT-N5100 - Galaxy Note 8.0
GT-N5105 - Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE
GT-N5110 - Galaxy Note 8.0 Wi-Fi
GT-N7100 - Galaxy Note2
GT-N7105 - Galaxy Note2 LTE
GT-N8000 - Galaxy Note 10.1
GT-N8005 - Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE
GT-N8010 - Galaxy Note 10.1 Wi-Fi
After the publication of the report, users of devices such as Galaxy Note, Galaxy S 2 and the U.S. version of the Galaxy S3 were very disappointed, as they could see the end of Android updates for their devices at Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Most disappointed were the users of Samsung Galaxy Grand, as the device is newly launched and powered by a dual-core processor.
There was also the question that if Samsung knows about Key Lime Pie's compatibility, then why is the company still releasing devices on dual-core processors?
It is not like the release plan of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is abolished. We still see reports about Android 5.0.1 Key Lime Pie running in Motorola's rumored device X phone.
However, there will be a day when some of the devices will have to stop at a particular Android update — but right now Android 4.3 Jelly Bean has definitely given dual-core devices a breather.
