Apart from this good news, something else is being prepared for us. Which is a new Flagship Nexus. Most importantly, it will run on the Android 5 operating system that Google wants to launch next year. Something to really look forward to amidst the mass of fresh gadgets set to be released in 2012.

The novelty that the Flagship nexus is all about has to do with the following idea: manufacturers are going to be able to bring a new device to the market via the Nexus Banner. But they will have to deal with Google guidelines. The latter won’t be very permissive, though.

The date that the Android 4.2 is going to see the light of day is somewhere at the end of this month. At the same time as a new smartphone made by LG. But all of these are just rumors that are yet to be confirmed by Google. In all likelihood, the place that the Key Lime Pie was chosen to be unveiled seems to be a happening presented by Google in partnership with LG.
