Can Google present Android 4.3 in May?

Although we have been waiting for the arrival of Key Lime Pie and it seemed that the time to meet him was finally approaching, there are more and more indications that, contrary to expectations, Google will not present it in the next I / O. However, according to the latest information, we will not leave empty-handed: a new version of the operating system could see the light there, but it would not be the 5.0, if not Android 4.3.
This past Tuesday we already told you that the latest rumors pointed to that, although it was counted as something quite certain, Key Lime PieIt would eventually be delayed until summer at least. This together with the leaks over expected Motorola X Phone, whose launch would also be postponed several months, seemed to leave the event for developers of Google in May. However, in the middle Android Police they have been investigating and their investigations have left us quite interesting news: in the I / O a new version of Android, only that this would still be Jelly bean.
As reported by this media, several records of Nexus 4 Y Nexus 7 with an operating system coded as Android 4.3 JWR23B. The fact that the numbering used is 4.3. instead of 5.0 (which was expected to correspond to Key Lime Pie), as well as the first letter of the code (J from Jelly bean, in this case), are signs that this new version will not bring us the qualitative leap we expected from Key Lime Piebut would confirm a new update for Jelly bean. Logically, one could doubt the authenticity of these records, but Android Police has tracked the IPs used and correspond to employees of Google.
Taking into account the previous news about the delay of Key Lime Pie and that Google It never assigns this type of codes to its new versions until they are quite close to its launch, and if we tie up ends with the fact that in the next month we will have an event of Google in which traditionally new versions of its mobile system have always been presented, it seems quite clear that in the I / O this year we probably don't know Android 5.0, but yes Android 4.3.
