Well, hello there, Key Lime Pie build numbers; spottings for Nexus 4, 7


Google’s been delivering new versions of Android Jelly Bean for a year now, and despite all those rumors of Android 5.0 or the imminent transition over to Key Lime Pie, we’ve seen Android 4.3 arrive as yet another in the Jelly Bean lineage. We may not be any closer to learning precisely when we’ll see the platform make the move to its next alphabetic dessert, but some new signs of that change have recently come to our attention, apparently outing work on bringing Key Lime Pie to the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.

A bug tracker entry for the Chromium project (the open source roots of Chrome) mentions a developer reporting running some tests on a number of handsets. While the Galaxy S III, GS4, and Note II that are mentioned all have Jelly Bean build numbers, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 are both identified as running KRS36B.

With Android build numbers, that leading letter is the what we’re interested in, and moving from J to K is what we’d expect to see for the release of Android’s first Key Lime Pie build.

Now we just have to figure out when it will get here; maybe this fall, for the next Nexus smartphone?
