Google developer page confirms Android 4.3 just before I/O starts

Google developer page confirms Android 4.3 just before I/O starts
We're just a few minutes away from the start of Google's marathon keynote address for Google I/O 2013, and already we have an inadvertent leak of some interesting information. There have been constant rumors that Google I/O would have the reveal of another incremental update to Android Jelly Bean, and confirmation of Android 4.3 has popped up on a Google developer page.

The page was the Android security enhancements page, but it wasn't live for very long. Still, it was cached, which allowed watchful eyes to find it and screencap it. So, Android 4.3 is real and is on its way, but we don't know anything new about it. We had learned previously that Android 4.3 will bring support for Bluetooth Low Energy and the OpenGL for Embedded Systems 3.0 graphics specification.

Only 20 minutes until the keynote, so we're sure we'll get more info then. Be sure to either tune in to the Google I/O keynote, or check out our liveblog.

Now I kind of wish I had bought a Nexus 4 instead of a Galaxy S3

Even though it is not Android 5.0 but still it is very exciting.

My Galaxy S3 hasn't even got 4.2.2 update, please Samsung make it fast. I really hope they won't skip 4.2.2 for S3 and just go for 4.3. That would take FOREVER.

Good for you!Poor me,I'm still stuck on GB 2.3.3 on my rooted unlocked Samsung Infuse 4G. ROMS are buggy for the camera so thank God there is Next Launcher 3D which is amazing.Waiting for a phone of comparable size and better screen quality which costs about $350 and not more as I got my Infuse in perfect condition for peanuts!!!!!! No I will never buy an unlocked new phone for more than $400.Miser Power!!!
