Now we find a Nexus 5 powered by Android 5.2; Sony Xperia Z2 powered by Android 420?

But now, as the clock on the wall heralds the arrival of Wednesday, another Geekbench test starring the Nexus 5 has appeared. And this time the phone is allegedly being powered by Android 5.2. Of course, Nexus handsets and tablets get first crack at new updates so it should be interesting to see when the Nexus 5 receives its next update and whether it will be Android 5.1, or Android 5.2 that comes at it OTA.
Speaking of surprising Android builds, one of our loyal readers passed along a screenshot of the Sony Xperia Z2 taking a Geekbench test with Android 420. Don't wait up for that build to arrive as it sounds like some sort of technical error. Or, as pointed out by another PhoneArena reader, it is a sophmoric joke.
Thanks for the tip!

The year is 2096, google has circled through the alphabet 4 times already. And this year at Google IO, they are announcing Android 420: Blaze it.

LOL........that won't happen even in 2096 considering it took MS 5 years just to introduce wallpapers to WP. People are still waiting for interactive tiles for ages and still there are no sign of coming that in Windows 10....

Nice to know that my nexus 5 is not that old. It's used as a sort of a lab rat.
