Android 5.0 Jelly Bean coming in Q2

Expect updates in 2016


Google is reportedly planning to launch Android 5.0 Jelly Bean in the second quarter 2012, which is nothing short of amusing at this point.

Google and numerous vendors are still struggling to offer ICS updates for their devices, so we can’t say were are too impressed and we don’t believe Jelly Bean should replace ICS anytime soon, mainly because ICS has yet to replace Gingerbread.

Most Android phones still run Gingerbread, an Android version introduced in late 2010.
