Just after reporting solid quarterly financials,
Qualcomm’s roadmap has leaked out on the web
revealing that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will
be announced in the second quarter of
2013 , likely on May 15th at Google I/O, and by
the end of the year Qualcomm will introduce new
chips tailored to fit the updated platform.
It is still not known what Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie
will bring, but the timing seems to be out of the
question now. Referred to as the K-release, and
later mentioned as Key Lime Pie, the Android 5.0
update could start arriving to existing Nexus
devices in a few weeks after the unveiling in May,
if Google follows the same schedule as before.
First devices running on Android 5.0 are
expected in Q3 2012.
That’s the exact time when you can expect to see
the new Nexus, of course.
A new hardware reference is also expected to
arrive in time for Android 5.0 device launch.
Qualcomm is expected to evolve the APQ8084
chip, delivering 2.3GHz quad-core processor and
Adreno 420 graphics.
