Android 4.3 spotted on Nexus 4, photos and video available

Android logoGoogle did not make the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system official at the Google I/O conference earlier this month, but that doesn’t mean that the company isn’t working on this platform release.

In fact, proof of that has already emerged online in the form of leaked photos with a Nexus 4 running under this OS version, complemented by a video posted online to show some of the changes that Google is expected to pack it with.

Nexus 4 was spotted at the Thailand Mobile Expo with OS build JWR45B loaded on top, a post on XDA-Developers explains. Furthermore, as Droid-life notes, Android 4.3 might spot two other build numbers when released, namely JWR46 and JWR39D.

Apparently, the build also included a new kernel, one that came out in May, suggesting that Android 4.3 is indeed nearing its official release.

The aforementioned leaked photos with the smartphone, users can have a look at the settings menu in this platform release, and will also catch a glimpse at an updated camera interface that Android 4.3 is expected to arrive on devices with.

A video sneak peek with the new camera UI inside the upcoming platform release also emerged alongside said photos, showing more of what users will receive in the software update.

It seems that the new camera app will provide users with fast access to settings through gestures on the screen, making it all more intuitive than before.

Furthermore, it is expected to arrive with a new timer option, new icons and information for HDR, along with some other enhancements, as Android Community notes.

Unfortunately, no official details on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and the enhancements that it would pack inside have been provided as of now, and it remains to be seen when exactly Google will take the wraps off it. Rumor has it that June 10 might be the lucky day for enthusiasts.
