Android 5.0 makes its first appearance in benchmarks, spotted on a mysterious Sony LT30i
Android 4.2 Jelly Bean has just been released, but while that was a minor update, we are still looking forward for the big changes coming when Android graduates to 5.0. And now, for the first time we are seeing a mysterious Sony smartphone, the Sony LT30i, appear on the NenaMark benchmark charts, listed with Android 5.0.0.

Now, there are no images, or anything more substantial to indicate whether we should trust this or not, so take this with a healthy shade of doubt.

With that in mind, though, we do have to note that Android 5.0 is obviously coming up. Russian analyst Eldar Murtazin (with a mixed track record) expects that it will likely be called Android 5 Key Lime Pie, and will be announced in February or March, with a wider release expected in May-June 2013. One of the biggest improvements Android 5 is expected to bring is in tablets, but again that is just a rumor.

Looking back to what we have here, the Sony LT30i, the mysterious device listed to run on Key Lime Pie, should be a version of the Sony Xperia T, which carries the Sony LT30 model number. The LT30i features a 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 chip with modest Adreno 220 graphics. It also has a display of unknown size, but with a 720p resolution.

This is it for the time being. How trustworthy you think this is? Do you agree we can expect Android 5 as early as February next year, or would that be way too early?
