Google is putting Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie on the back burner for the time being and instead focusing on making version 4.3 of the platform, still housed within the Jelly Bean generation, its next major release.
TechRadar reports that a number of major manufacturers have already confirmed that they will be bringing Android 4.3 to existing devices, as well as rolling it out natively on future flagship releases.
Samsung said that it will be working to integrate Android 4.3 with handsets like the Galaxy S4 over the coming months, although it is unlikely to be particularly quick in its quest to launch the update, based on its past performance.
Sony is also gearing up to make Android 4.3 available from a wide range of its top tier smartphones, including the Xperia Z and the Xperia SP.
Of course if you have a Nexus brand device from Google, then you are certain to be amongst one of the first people to experience version 4.3 of Android at first hand.
This includes smartphones like the Nexus 4 from LG, as well as tablet devices like the Nexus 7 and its larger sibling, the Nexus 10.
