Just last week, we talked about the possibility of Android 4.2 being released in November, which is just a month away. The thing is, we do not know whether Android 4.2 will maintain its “Jelly Bean” moniker or not, but it seems that Android 4.2 will not be a major but rather an incremental update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so chances are pretty good that it will remain this way for a while more. Android Police did discover new software versions in different server logs, where it does seem to indicate that Google employees are currently testing out Android 4.2 on the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and on a Motorola Nexus device.
It must be noted that the build number for each of these operating system updates begin with the letter “J”, which could point towards retaining the Jelly Bean name. Of course, this is just based on pure speculation, but eventually all will be revealed with the official release. What we are more interested in would be how Google will see through their Nexus strategy later this year, and will it only be LG who is the only player, or will all other Android-supporting hardware companies have their flagship devices fall under the Nexus family?
