Google teases Android 5.0
It has been awhile since Android has an overall revamp for their OS. Android 2.0 was launched in 2009, and then 3 and 4.0 made its appearance in 2011, so it has been 3 years since Google released any major update.

We have seen something like 4:40, 4:30, etc… On many Nexus and Google Play edition phones. If you go to the Play Store right now, click on the Nexus 5 or any other devices on the site, you’ll see they are all at 4:40, and this is no different. So, did we just see a screen shot of Android 5.0?
Well, it is just a theory, but it is quite possible if we look at how Google tease Android version in the past.
