Key Lime Pie – the codename for Android 5.0 – is the latest version of the Android OS.Although Google hasn’t confirmed its intent to release the next generation of its popular smartphone- and tablet-optimized operating system, there’s plenty of reasons to presume its existence.
Android Key Lime Pie is expected to be a significant modification of the existing Android operating system, and it will likely make way for plenty of new features. Android Key Lime Pie will be optimized for the latest generation of Android smartphones hitting the market, many of which are capable of running 8-core processors and a variety of other new hardware.
Android Key Lime Pie Release Date
Android Key Lime Pie was scheduled to be released at Google’s annual developerconference, Google I/O. This year, the developer conference took place May 15-17.Given that Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at 2012?s IO conference, it’s was not unreasonable to expect to see Android 5.0 at this year’s event but that didn’t happpen. so Rumors of release of android key lime pie has been shifted to September end.let see it this rumor is ture.
Android Key Lime Pie Features:
One of the best-kept secrets about the Android Key Lime Pie release date is the smartphone or mobile devices that will be capable of running the new operating system on launch day.The big debate surrounding the release of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is whether the operating system will be launched with a Motorola or LG Electronics smartphone. Many experts predict that Google will unveil a Motorolasmartphone the same day Android 5.0 is unveiled because the company hasn’t made any major releases since purchasing Motorola for $12.5 billion and as we have told you before the devices set to receive the upgrade are the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 8.0 and Galaxy Note 10.1.
Another possibility that’s been heavily reported is that Google will unveil Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie on a new LG Electronics device called the Nexus 5.On Monday 18 March, supposed images of the Nexus 5 surfaced leaked on site.If the accompanying specs, leaked along with the photo by the anonymous source, are true, then the Nexus 5 will feature a 5.2-inch, 1920 x 1080 OLED display, 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM.
Although we’re fairly certain about the Android 5.0 release date, we’re much less certain about any of the features, specs or technical details about the next-generation operating system. Still, even with very little information available about Android 5.0 features, there are plenty of functions and upgrades that technologists expect to be incorporated into the next version of the operating system.Hopefully the new mobile OS will feature some of these things…
BB10 has it, Android should offer it too. This feature will allow changing data and sound settings under different profiles. This feature is already offered on Android Tablets running Jelly Bean and we strongly believe that Android smartphones will also receive this feature with Key Lime Pie.
Google Talk, SMS, Google+, Google Voice….The list of Google’s various news services is very long. Thankfully, the company is already working on Google Babble, which will centralized all news feeds and notifications. It looks like Google Babble could be presented along side Android 5.0 and then later on, it might be offered to older Android versions as an app.
Android doesn’t really do much for social network users out of the box, with most of the fancy social widgets and features coming from the hardware makers through their own custom skins.
Sony integrates Facebook brilliantly in its phones, and even LG makes a great social network aggregator widget that incorporates Facebook and Twitter – so why are there no cool aggregator apps as part of the standard Android setup?
Another Android Key Lime Pie feature expected to be incorporated into the new operating system is better video conferencing capabilities. As it stands, all Android users must download a third-party app (such as Skype or Tango) in order to have a video conference with their friends. This issue will likely be resolved in the near future, especially because all of Google’s major competitors in the mobile operating system industry are beginning to incorporate video conferencing into the smartphones. Blackberry, for instance, offers users a video conferencing experience directly out of the box. Microsoft, too, has video conferencing software in its smartphones. Expect Google to catch up to its biggest competitors when it releases the next iteration of its mobile operating system.
The Android contacts section is pretty useful, but it could be managed a little better. What if you have the idea of emailing or texting a handful of your friends? The way that’s currently done is by emailing one, then adding the rest individually. Some sort of checkbox system that let users scroll through names and create a mailing list on the fly through the contacts listing in Android Key Lime Pie would make this much easier.
Google already provides Email, Contacts, and Calendar sync with your GMail account. However, text messages are not restored after changing sim cards or devices. There is a strong possibility that Google will add the ability to sync text messages to the cloud with Android Key Lime Pie.
Something Apple’s been doing for ages and ages is using a promo code system to distribute free or review versions of apps. It even makes doing little competitions to drum up publicity for apps much easier, so why’s there no similar scheme for Android?
It might encourage developers to stop going down the ad-covered/freemium route if they could charge for an app but still give it away to friends and fans through a promo code system.
On 28 February 2013, we learned from Android Central that Google is working with the Linux 3.8 kernel, which gives rise to the notion that this kernel might make it into Android 5. One improvement that the 3.8 kernel brings is lowered RAM usage, which would mean a snappier phone with better multitasking.
In our opinion, the features listed above are completely realistic and plausible. Do you have any other essential features for Android Key Lime Pie? Don’t forget to give us your predictions for in the comments below.
