Android 5.0 might arrive at the end of the year, compatible for older devices
Those who were hoping to get an announcement for the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie at Google I/O 2013 were a bit disappointed. However the company is following its own strategy for the releases of new updates of OS Android to assure enough time for manufacturers to catch up with the new versions. Fans of Android are eager to know more about the soon-to-be released Android 4.3 and the new devices Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition and the HTC One Nexus Experience.
Rumors say that we will see the update of Android later this month or in July. Does that mean that we can expect the introduction of Android 5.0 in the fall? The company will have at least several months for the developing and the optimizing of the update, if the rumors turn out to be true.
What we know so far about the Android 5.0 is that Google is focused on developing the update to be compatible to devices using 512MB RAM. If this happens, this will be a great gesture from Google for the owners of the older Android devices who will also be able to take advantage of the update. It is quite a challenge in front of manufacturers to develop the new software to be optimized to work well on older devices. We believe that Google will do a nice job in that matter. Some of the rivals of the company, like BlackBerry, Windows Phone and iOS also work to optimize their new software for the older models smartphones and tablets.
After the announcement of Galaxy S4 Google Edition and the HTC One Nexus Experience, it is time for the Sony Xperia Z that will run on stock Android to be introduced. Fans of Nexus are eagerly anticipating the launching of Nexus 5 in the summer as well.
