Google confirms Android 4.1 Jelly Bean release with statue

Ahead of the Google I/O unveiling, Google has confirmed the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean release with a new statue added to its Android HQ collection

 

With just hours to go until the formal announcement, Google has seemingly confirmed the name of its next-generation Android operating system with a Jelly Bean themed statue being erected outside the company’s Mountain View headquarters.

Seemingly confirming an upcoming Android 4.1 Jelly Bean release, and in keeping with the company’s now quirky tradition, the jelly bean themed structure has been constructed alongside the Android themed confectionary statues that have become the codenames for past mobile OS iterations.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Rumours

With the new Jelly Bean statue lining up alongside the likes of the Android themed Ice Cream Sandwich, Honeycomb, Éclair and Gingerbread, the fun teaser all but confirms the ongoing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean rumours that are expected to culminate in a formal unveiling later today.

Whilst the name is hardly the best kept secret on the tech scene, information on the new features and functions that will be introduced with the next Android OS are considerably murkier with a number of reports suggesting Google will make its Chrome web browser the new mobile based standard.

Tipped to be as attuned to tablets as it is smartphones, it is widely expected that Google will unveil its first own branded tablet alongside Android 4.1 with the Asus Nexus 7 to land as a 7-inch budget powerhouse that will boast a quad-core processor and a minimalist $199 price tag.

What would you like to see introduced in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and what do you think Google will name its next Android OS that should begin with the letter K? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
