It might prove fake in the end, as benchmarking results can be manipulated
Last week, Google made the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform release official on new Nexus devices, yet it seems that the company is also working on the next flavor of the mobile operating system, one that might land on handsets and tablets as Android 5.0.Said to sport the codename of Key Lime Pie, the platform was mentioned before in relation with new devices, and has made another appearance online.
A new NenaMark2 benchmarking result for Sony’s Xperia T shows the device as running under this flavor of the operating system.
The smartphone is also listed there with a 1.6GHz processor inside (apparently an upgrade from the dual-core 1.5GHz Krait CPU it was launched with) and with a Qualcomm Adreno 220 GPU (the smartphone was launched with Adreno 225 graphics).
The screen resolution for the device is the same 1280x720 pixel the device featured when it was launched, while the model number is a match as well, namely LT30i.
The smartphone is listed with a score of 74.60 in the benchmark, and it appears that Sony is considering bringing some improvements to it in the not too distant future.
Of course, with such benchmarks being easy to manipulate, it would not come too much as a surprise if these results proved fake, though enthusiasts will certainly start dreaming of the next flavor of Google’s mobile platform landing on their smartphones.
But, with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean set to arrive on devices in the coming weeks, we still have to hear more on Sony’s plans to make this OS upgrade available for existing users before looking to get a taste of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, that’s for sure.
For the time being, we’ll take the info on a possible testing of the next Android release on Sony’s flagship phone with a grain of salt, but we’ll keep an eye out for more on the matter.
