Google’s I/O developer conference is next week. It has been widely believed that the search giant will show off the next version of its Android operating system, but until today, we didn’t know for sure what it would be called or what number it would be.
Today, all of our questions regarding the next Android update have been confirmed – by none other than our favorite broken service, Google Wallet. Above is a screenshot that I took of my cart after I added the Galaxy Nexus to it. When I bought my Galaxy Nexus, the little image showed the default Ice Cream Sandwich wallpaper. It’s very different here; instead of the rainbow pattern, it’s a few colorful circles.
That obviously shows us that an update is coming, but it still doesn’t let us know what that update will be named or numbered. Luckily, The Verge was able to take this snapshot that shows a detailed description of the update.
“Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ – The latest smartphone from Google, soon the first phone with Android 4.1 Jell…” is the description Google Wallet gives. It’s cut off at the end, but it’s almost 100% confirmed that Android 4.1, the next update to Android, will be named Jelly Bean.
We’ll find out for sure next week at Google I/O. As a fan of Android and an owner of a Galaxy Nexus, I’m beyond excited. Are you?[The Verge]
