Android 6.0 = Key Lime Pie?

Android 6.0 = Key Lime Pie?
Well, we all just received the obvious hint at MWC that Android 5 would be called Jelly Bean. While we really don’t know too much about the next release from Google, especially since it isn’t even expected to be released until the fall, there is already talk about Android 6’s codename.

The folks over at The Verge claim to have a reliable inside source at Google who states that Key Lime Pie will come after Jelly Bean. The Verge backs up this prediction by pointing out that this is the same person that tipped them about the Jelly Bean name last year.

Besides this tipster’s great track record, if we are to follows Google’s pattern of naming Android releases after a dessert in alphabetical order, it’s hard to think of desserts that start with K, except for maybe Kugelhopf (bonus points if you know what that is). We’re pretty sure Google is going to go with something more recognizable in America. Key Lime Pie it is.

It's also what we predicted back in September of last year, when we first heard of Jelly Bean. Followed by Lollipop, Millefeuille, Nougat, and on and on http://www.phonearena.com/news/After-Android-Ice-Cream-Sandwich-will-be-Jelly-Bean_id22004/comments/page/2

i hope 7.0 will be oreo

It'll be a while until we get to Oreo. As the updates seem to go in order by alpahabet. So when we get to the letter "O" it'll be Android 10.0...

will there really be such big version jumps? it seems more likely Jelly Bean will be Android 4.x and maybe Key Lime Pie will be Android 5. o:

Ha you beat me to it. I was posting this earlier then left my computer for a moment and just finished the comment. But yeah, I doubt it.

I doubt these updates are going to be this incremental. Until jelly bean comes out, I still don't see them using the Android 5.0 moniker just yet. The leap to whole numbers usually indicates a big change and seeing that ice cream sandwich is still not established in the market today, I doubt jelly bean will be too different from ICS. But don't quote me... I'm simply speculating.

I wonder what would be on Z

It's worth noting that we don't know that Jelly Bean will be 5.0 or that Key Lime Pie will be 6.0 - it may be that Android will be adopting a full version update every year, but as recently as Gingerbread (2.3) that wasn't true, so it's probably not a safe assumption to make right now.

My bet is on The big numbers from now on, I can see a 4.x on io as an update that fixes bugs and betters performance (something easy for manufacturers to update) ad the big numbers along with a new code name.
