Is Google's Tweet Subtly Foretelling the Impending Launch of Android 5.0?

By Tom Pritchard on at

Google's recent tweet about the world cup might well have some extra implications other than finding scores on Google Now, eagle eyed people have noticed that the clock on the phones are all set to 5:00.

Now some of you might be thinking, "so what if it's set to five o'clock? What's the big deal?" Well, Google has actually been using time in pictures like this to represent the next version of Android ever since Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). As it currently stands, all Android devices on sale on Google Play have their clocks set to 4:40, the same number as the current iteration of the software. Coincidence? I think not.

So what will Android 5.0 bring? Some have speculated that it'll tighten the links between Android, Chrome, and search, but no other details are known. We'll just have to wait until Google's I/O on 25th June to find out. [Digital Spy]
