Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie Could Launch in Q2 2013

After announcing its 2012 fourth quarter earnings, chip manufacturer Qualcomm has seemingly confirmed that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will launch sometime during Q2, 2013.

The follow up to Google's Jelly Bean operating system will be announced during the second quarter of 2013, according to Qualcomm's roadmap. An exact date is likely to be May 15, which is when Google I/O commences. Qualcomm expects to introduce new chips associated with the upgraded OS towards the latter stages of 2013.

Referred to as the K-release, Android 5.0 is, when taking Google's previous schedule into account, widely expected to debut on existing Nexus devices a few weeks after the search engine giant's event in mid-May.

Google has hinted that the next Android version will indeed be Key Lime Pie, with subsidiary Motorola said to be scheduled to debut its X smartphone, which is believed to run on Android 5.0, at Google I/O.
