Analysts are pretty sure that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie release date has come closer. Here we take a look at its important features
Talks over Google’s next Nexus phone, maybe Motorola XPhone or Nexus X are gaining more momentum. It is certain that Google will be launching the device with a fresh Android version, the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie that has been in rumors for a while. Earlier, when Nexus 4 was said to debut the KLP, but it got a new Jelly Bean version (Android 4.2). Now it is the right time to churn out speculations over the next Android version, which might be running the next Nexus phone. Here is all you should know about the Key Lime Pie.
Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie – Release Date: Google I/O is to take place in May. As per the company’s tradition, we have enough reason to expect the KLP at the event. Google launched Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at 2012’s I/O conference. So, most analysts have noted it down that the new Android version would be coming in May. Most likely, it will be deputing on the next Nexus phone, which is also rumored for release at the event.
Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie – Hardware: What we can say at the moment is that the next Nexus would be the first handset with the KLP. Often, Google introduces a fresh version of its mobile operating system through one of its own devices. We received the latest two versions – the Android 4.1 and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean – respectively on Nexus 7 tablet and Nexus 4 smartphone. The new Key Lime Pie may thus come to light on Nexus X, the rumored next version Nexus phone, likely to be manufactured by Google’s subsidiary Motorola.
Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie Features
Of course, every new edition of Android turns up with a range of fresh features. We can also expect something exciting with the next Android version. Google has not yet exposed to the world what new things the software would have. But, here are some features you can likely expect with Android 5.0 KLP.
A Guest Mode: The 4.2 JB brought multiple-user feature to Android. It opened a way for the mobile platform to look like Windows on a desktop PC. Users could set up separate account on a single device as it could be done on a PC. But, the next Android version, as per rumors it to have a guest mode, which will let guests access some parts of the device from the lock screen. “However, a guest mode – that prevents access to SMS, phone storage and anything besides what the owner deems appropriate without a password – would be fantastic,” says PhoneDog.com.
Lockscreen and Widgets: If you have Android 4.2 JB in your gadget, you can already enjoy lots of widgets on lock screen. With the update, Google has brought some home screen widgets to the lock screen. Now, the next Android version is to fetch more widgets to the standard lock screen. It seems that you can even access the camera app from the lock screen thanks to a simple right-to-left gesture from the right edge of the screen.
Shutter Speed Control in Camera App: Shutter speed control has not been possible in most Android devices. Apple iPhone and Lumia 920 have been doing well in this regard with their exclusive camera sensors. In case of Android, every company uses different sensors and so the shouter speed is mostly controlled through different drivers as well. This often leads to the slow shutter speed. With the Android 5.0, this issue can be solved, analysts say.
“It would be possible – at least from my understanding – for Google to develop a broad API for adjusting shutter speed within the camera application and third-party manufacturers could implement the feature at will,” says PhoneDog.Com. So, we can expect a facility for controlling shutter speed in the new Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie’s camera app. It will produce more nice images from the compatible devices.

Samsung Galaxy S4 leaked screenshots shows Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean


he first time that these screenshots appeared on the world wide web, everyone thought that these are showing the Samsung Galaxy S3 new features and functions. But, instead, it seems like these are from the Android 4.2.1 Os that will come with the Galaxy S4 along its upcoming new Nature UX 2.0 and other small features.
Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean leaked screenshots are featuring two new options, Smart Scroll and Smart Stay. This new firmware will also be released as an OTA Update for the Galaxy S3 owners, which means that Samsung will continue to drop the latest features and functions even for some of their older smartphones.
The leaked screenshots are showing that the Galaxy S4 will comes with a Full HD 1080p screen and the new Nature UX 2.0 confirms that there won’t be any major visual improvements added to the UI. SamMobile (tipped by GSM Israel) are the ones who got tipped first with these leaked images and it seems like they also confirm that are taken from the Samsung Galaxy S4 phone and we will be 100% only when March 14th arrives as Samsung will present its latest devices at their own event called Unpacked 2013.

Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean with cool new features

There are two new and important features shown by these screenshots, the Smart Scroll and Smart Pause. There are some other small functions displayed on the Notification bar but until now we don’ t have any confirmation about their names nor functionality. ‘Smart Scroll’ is a neat feature that will automatically scroll pages and screens when your eyes are nearing the lower part of the phone’s display. ‘Smart Pause’ is also great, as it can pause any multimedia apps that are playing on your smartphone when your head turns away from the screen.
All these functions will be displayed and demoed at Samsung Unpacked on March 14th. Expect Samsung to confirm that the Galaxy S4 will come with a Full HD 5-inch 1080p display, 1.8 GHz octo-core CPU, 2GB RAM, a 13MP camera and the Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean OS.
All the functions and features of the Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean that will be launched with Galaxy S4 will also be pushed via OTA Update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which means that you should keep an eye on all Android-based web sites and be the first to learn in case any other files and screenshots will be leaked until the day of the official release.

Another Galaxy S3 Android 4.1.2 Update Rolls Out Without Premium Suite

The nation’s fifth largest carrier, U.S. Cellular, has rolled out its version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update. The update follows in the footsteps of previous Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean updates that have hit the United States including those for the Sprint, Verizon and C Spire Galaxy S3′s.

The Galaxy S3 in the U.S. remains without the Premium Suite.


U.S. Cellular’s Android 4.1.2 update for the Galaxy S3 seems to only features two changes, at least according to its changelog. The first, is a bump to to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and the second is a fix for an audio issue with streaming media. And while both might be exciting to Galaxy S3 owners on U.S. Cellular, the update is without the Premium Suite of features that landed with other Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean updates around the world.
Several months ago, Samsung unleashed a Premium Suite of features for Galaxy S3 owners which arrived with the device’s upgrade to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The update brings a number of features to the table including the Galaxy Note 2′s Multi-Window View which allows owners to divide up the display into two sections running two separate applications.

However, owners in the United States have yet to see the Premium Suite despite it being available on Galaxy S3 devices around the world. Instead, owners on Sprint, C Spire and Verizon have been treated to some enhancements and bug fixes, rather than a full-fledged upgrade with Samsung’s baked-in features.
Perhaps the most frustrating part of it all is the fact that no U.S. carriers have confirmed the features for arrival which means that the Premium Suite’s future in the U.S. is up in the air
