Android update with Bluetooth Smart support
There were a lot of expectations for the I/O this year. One of them was the launching of the new Android 4.3 which did not happen. What we were expecting from the upcoming update was for this version of Android to have Bluetooth Low Energy support and the OpenGL for Embedded System 3.0.
The last days confirmed the news for the next coming version of Android that will include Bluetooth Smart support. The news came from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. They announced that in “a couple short months” from now we can expect the new version of Android.
Many were disappointed that the I/O did not bring the Android 4.3. Everything shows that Google is focusing on developing and updating of its apps, including the Android apps.
Why is Google slowing down the upgrading of the Android OS? There are at least two possibilities for answers to this question. Either the company is slowing down the updates for Android to give time to developers and manufacturers to catch up with the improvements, or Google is planning something big for the upcoming updates of Android. Next months will give us more clues.
What we know now is that the new version of Android that will have Bluetooth Smart support, which is the new Bluetooth specification. There are rumors about the name of the new version. Some say it will be called Android 4.2.3, while others believe it will be called Android 4.3. We are eager to understand more about the new version. It is more likely that the update will bring more than just the mentioned above feature.
Which devices will run the new version? What significant differences it will bring? What special features the new version of Android will include? Those are a few things that we are curious to know.
