Android 4.5 will be the next version of Android, not 5.0

The latestĀ release of Chrome beta build 37 brings an interesting news with its design refreshments. On an Android L running phone, the latest Chrome Beta release 37 shows the Android version underĀ itsĀ settings page asĀ ā€œAndroid 4.4.99; Build/LPV79ā€. While previously it was shown as Android 4.3.0 and the stable Chrome for Android build still shows Android 4.3.0 as version of Android L developer preview.

So we guess this Android 4.4.99 version pretty much confirms the next versionĀ of Android to be Android 4.5, not the 5.0 weĀ all haveĀ been expecting. Also, the .99 figure makes sense for theĀ developer preview buildĀ of Android L that weā€™re running.

However,Ā given the design overhaul in Android L, version 4.5 sounds like a minor jump. Maybe Google has even bigger plans for the Android 5.0 release. What do you think?

  1. 4.4.99 is probably some internal end-of-4.4 build. Gives no indication of the version of next version.

  3. I love how this clickbait of an article uses the headline ‘Android 4.5 will be’ and then in the article they say ‘so we guess’.

    Great way to lose any ounce of credibility you have
