Google Play Confirms Android 4.1 is Jelly BeanDCI
The Google Play store has mistakenly leaked out that the upcoming new Android OS, version 4.1 will be called Jelly Bean.
Over the past few months, there has been considerable speculation about Android 5.0 having the Jelly Bean codename. But a leak in the Google Play listing for the Galaxy Nexus, which showed that the next version would be 4.1 and not 5.0, took everyone by storm.
As first reported by Droid Life, a small Google Play product listing, “The latest smartphone from Google, soon the first phone with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean”, referred to the Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ handset. According to the update, the Nexus phone with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS will cost around $400 in the United States.
The slip was caught up soon by Google and after sometime it removed the mention of Android 4.1 and Jelly Bean from the update.
Rumors suggest that the Jelly Bean update is coming very soon and everyone expects Google to unveil the new version at Google’s app developer conference in San Francisco, next week. If released, Google Nexus will be the first among the existing devices to get the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update.
