New features of Android 4.3 leaked from Meetup posting

Open GL ES 3.0 is expected to bring "updated shading language, enhanced texturing" to Android. The mobile graphics specification is already supported by chips like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 which is found in new handsets like the LG Optimus G Pro, HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. Improved graphics will certainly lead to a crop of new games for Android 4.3.
Android 4.3 is expected to be introduced during Google I/O which takes place later this month. Originally, it had been thought that Google would debut Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie during the developer event, but with OEMs asking for a delay so that they can push out Android 4.2.2 to their current devices, Google has agreed to hold off on releasing the next major update to Android.

It maybe because of lack of tech knowledge. ;)

Sorry but Tim Cook isn't a techie. He was great with supply chains crunching numbers, ie a bean counter. Not to say he doesn't know anything about tech, but if you want to reference a techie, it'd be Wozniak, Gates, Jobs, Rubin, Duarte, etc.

I zero lag in my Nexus 4. Not sure what lag you're seeing, but if it isn't in stock Android and you are using a manufacturers skin, then you can't complain. My Nexus 7 only lags when an app is installing or updating and that is certainly unacceptable, but not much Google can do to release the tax on the Tegra 3 when under load.

Your last comment expression really seemed like trolling and hoursy23 and darac were actually right, stock Android is really well optimized with ALMOST no lag at all (of course there is SOME lag) but u were also right and there is, as I said, lag on Andriod but not noticeable that much any more (it was in the earlier versions of Android). Custom skins r pain in the a*s for the OS as they both give Android some extra functionality and beauty but at the cost of the performance.

U cant find some stuff in stock Android - that's a fact! One example is Samsung and all the functions that Galaxy S4 and Note 2 and other their products give through the TouchWiz. Same is for HTC, Sony, LG, Motorola and so on... By beauty, well... I totally agree with u. To me, Android is as good looking as it is by default but u gotta admit - those skins r meant to make it 'prettier' than it is and some find it true but some of us don't so its just a free choice.

I have a Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.2 and yes it's laggy, especially during game play. The truth is just that. However, the functionality and options afforded by Android, is what keeps me in the platform. Willing to tolerate certain things in exchange for the aforementioned features.

martiniosha is just another troll id from the same few persons. iOS is a simple app launcher, if that lags than it would be apple intend to make it so to encourage their fans to upgrade and it works all the time. Apple fans never questioned their god.

How are you talking to us from 2009? Here in 2013. Android is smooth, as confirmed by tech site after tech site, which essentially say that the choice between Android and iOS comes down to personal choice. There is no perceptible difference in performance. (And that was ICS). Of course there is a really big difference in how many people choose each...
