Latest statistics reveals that only 1% of Android device all around the world that run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But that sounds not too important for Google. The fact that they want to stay on top in the industry. That’s why the giant search company is reported to develop Android 5.0 Jelly Bean to compete against Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8, which will be able to create an integrated environment between tablet, smartphone, and desktop computer. There’s still no official words yet from Google, but lot of experts believe that Jelly Bean will debut on Q3 2012. Here’s the summary of Android 5.0 Jelly Bean rumors and news that we found so far.
File Manager. The new Android 5.0 is reported to feature built-in File Manager. This is mean that users can organize and put their personal belongings in a neat and organized folder. Although this feature is not new at all. If you’re happen to own Android handsets from Samsung, you’ll be granted with the pre-loaded file manager apps. There are also many third-party file manager apps that available in the Google Play.
Lite version. The main reason why Android 4.0 update being pushed so slow by the carrier and manufacturer is because they still can’t determine which one of their handset that able to run the full scale Android 4.0 OS. Of course it will run well on a dual-core smartphone or above, but when it comes to lower specs device, the Android ICS works quite terrible. That’s why Google is rumored to release the lite version of Android 5.0 Jelly Bean, which is dedicated to smartphone and tablet with limited amount of RAM and CPU clock.
Google Chrome. The company’s web browser is already available for android. You can grab it at Google Play now. Sadly, it is only work with devices that run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This is the main reason why there’s lot of users urge Google to integrate Google Chrome browser on the next version of Android. Aside from being know as the most stable web browser, Google Chrome is also promise for faster web browsing experience, thanks to it’s unique compression method. Imagine to carry on such ability in your android handset. Amazing isn’t it?
Battery, Power, and Efficient OS. Battery lifetime and power management are both classic problem that keep haunting smartphone and tablet industry in the past few years. For now, the quick solution to deal with this problem is by implementing huge battery unit, just like Verizon did with Droid RAZR Maxx. Off course not all smartphone OEMs able to do such thing. That’s why the Google planned to implement Android 5.0 Jelly Bean with better power management and source code that bring improved battery lifetime.
Release Date. As we mentioned earlier, the OS is expected to start it’s debut on Q3 2012. But since there’s no solid evidence on this, we suggest you to take this as nothing but grain of salt.
