Prior to this, Google had used Android 4.x for three different builds of Android: Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0), Jelly Bean (4.1-4.3), and KitKat (4.4).

We can only assume that Google’s decision to make the jump to version 5.0 could mean some pretty significant changes that will be made to the platform. We’ve actually been hearing many things about Android lately. For example we have heard that Google could be making some big UI changes with their Quantum Paper design language.
