If you have been using Google now in the last couple days, you would have received this notification asking you to choose your favorite team for this Fifa World cup. While you were selecting your favorite team, Google announced the same feature with one promo picture. What is interesting about this promo picture is the time that is being shown in the extreme top right position. The clock is sitting right at 5.00 which could perhaps be the next android version. You must be thinking that this is the most ridiculous way of finding something out of nowhere but we have something to prove you wrong. In the past, Google has been doing the same thing for years. Google has been teasing everyone with android numbers being shown as the clock’s timing. Right from the Android 2.3 Gingerbread to the latest Android 4.4 Kitkat, Google has added the clock time as the respective android version.
Google’s tweet – Android 5.0 confirmed?
Taking the recent example of Android 4.4 Kitkat, Google had released an image with clock timing of 4:40 which is none other than the current Android version. The same thing was spotted for Android 4.3 and Android 4.2 when it had released banners featuring nexus 7 2013 and nexus 4 respectively. The image below should clear your doubt little bit.
If you still have doubt about the how this could be true, we have some more images of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Android 4.0 ice cream sandwich with the same clock position. As you can see the image below, the clock does show the time of 4:10, 4:00 and 2:30 which is directly related to the android versions which were released during that time period.
We would really love to see the next android 5.0 being announced in Google I/O which is happening later this month. It would be quite interesting to see the new features that would come through this new update. Experts believe that the Android 5.0 could bring in some of the major design overhauls for apps and icons. Google could perhaps be looking at keeping the design pattern similar on various apps that it had developed.
Though the images makes us believe that Android 5.0 could be the next android version, the question remains when Google will actually announce it.
Are you excited about this update? What are you expecting from Google Android 5.0? Let us know through the comments. We are listening..
