According to Android Geeks, a European site that originally expected Key Lime Pie to be launched in 2014, there were some context clues at the recently concluded I/O conference that hint at Android 5.0 being rolled out sometime in 2013. One presentation showed an animation featuring a man on a bicycle, a girl eating ice cream, and to the right of the girl, Android mascot Bugdroid eating a Key Lime Pie.
The report may largely be based on speculation and interpretation of clues, but again, it only corroborates older rumors that suggest the next big Android update will be out this year. Most sources expect Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie to be unveiled at or around the same time as Android’s fifth anniversary in October.
As a Sony phone running Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie was spotted recently on a few benchmark logs, there’s also speculation on the possibility of Sony being the manufacturer of the Nexus 5. Still, the consensus remains the same – LG may be the most likely company to work with Google in developing the fifth-generation Nexus flagship. And in all likelihood, we could also be seeing a Nexus 5 launched alongside Android 5.0, with the new platform coming right out of the box.
