When the Google I/O event was held yesterday, many were expecting Google to announce the arrival of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. The reason behind may be that Google did not announce any new flagship smartphone like Nexus on which they could run the latest Android 4.3. Thanks to Bluetooth Special Interest Group (BSIG), we have got nearly accurate information on the arrival of Android 4.3.
According to BSIG, the forthcoming Android version will support Bluetooth Smart Ready and Bluetooth Smart. The statement was released by BSIG to bloggers after the Google I/O event was over. The representative from BSIG quoted on Twitter that the feature will be available in the couple of months which indicates the awaited Android 4.3 will be available by the end of July or in the month of August.
The current version of Android running on all the smartphones does not support Bluetooth 4.0 Smart. To support it, one has to make use of additional drivers. The operating systems like BlackBerry, Apple iOS and Windows Phone users do not have such an issue. According to the statement made by BSIG, Android will be able to support Bluetooth Smart which probably means the newer version of Android 4.3 is somewhere around the corner.
The next update from Android is going to be Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. After 4.2 Jelly Bean, tech analysts were expecting Android Key Lime Pie 5.0. However, the server logs that became accessible before the Google I/O event clearly indicates that the next build is going to be Android 4.3. Tech enthusiasts were expecting that Google would be announcing the Android 4.3 arrival at the Google I/O event and this probably mean announcement of new flagship Nexus device. However at the Google I/O event, there was no announcement of any of the forthcoming Nexus devices like Nexus 4 LTE and Nexus 11 tablet.
Still, many are clueless about the features of the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. It is believed that this version will support Bluetooth Low Energy and OpenGL. Through BLE, users will be able to save on battery life when connected to other Bluetooth devices such as Bluetooth keyboard or speakers. OpenGL will allow users to enjoy advanced graphics and thereby enjoy full HD 3D gaming.
