Google have been hiding Android 5.0 "Key Lime Pie" behind some very sealed doors, but it looks like the first sliver of information has leaked out on Google's next-gen mobile OS.

Members of the Chromium Project are used to seeing countless Android builds, but the latest one is from a Chromium user who spotted a posting of bug 267659, who reported an issue with Cloud Print by listing out his devices. The Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 were both listed, running Android built KRS36B. These few digits and letters are very significant, to those who know what to look for.

 

The most important part? The "K" in KRS36B, which stands for "Key" in Key Lime Pie. All previous releases for Jelly Bean start with "J", and it continues backwards with "I" for Ice Cream Sandwich, "G" for Gingerbread, and so on. The most recent build pushed out to the original Nexus devices was JWR66V, so we have "J" for Jelly Bean, obviously.

 

There's not much we know on Key Lime Pie, but I'm expecting an evolution of the already great UI, and some truly game-changing new features and additions. We could see Google unveil Android 5.0 at a rumored event in October that would see the Mountain View-based company unveil a new Nexus 4 smartphone (finally!) and a new Nexus 10. We could even expect a smartwatch to be unveiled, too.
