Google Drops Hint That Android 5.0 is on its Way

Published on:

Google may have dropped a cryptic hint that it is about to release version 5 of the Android OS.

Google puts the OS variant number into the screenshots it uses on Google Play as the time the handset is set to -- so the screenshots all appear to have been taken at 4:40pm, which happens to be the current OS release.

So what did they do the other day? Only release a screenshot of a mobile phone with the clock set to 5pm.

Or 5:00, which could be a pure coincidence, or a sign that Google is indeed preparing to release Android 5.0 to the market.

The current hot rumour for its nickname... Lollipop.
