Leading up to Google I/O 2013, many people expected Google to unveil Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie at the event. Shortly before the event, however, devices running Android 4.3 started appearing in benchmarks and website’s server logs, seemingly erasing our hopes of seeing Android 5.0 anytime soon. When Google I/O finally rolled around, we got hit with a double whammy. We did not see Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie or Android 4.3. This obviously poses the question of when Google will unveil the next version of Android. Current rumors point to sometime in July alongside the next Nexus tablet, and if this most recent leak turns out to be true, then it won’t be Key Lime Pie.

A user on XDA has spotted a Nexus 4 out in the wild running Android build JWR45B, as well as a new kernel that was built last week. These two paired together, plus the Android version reading “Android 4.3”, it is very likely that this is in fact the real Android 4.3 build.
The user only snapped a handful of pictures of the build and none of them show any major changes. One of the images shows the camera interface, which is slightly redesigned with the controls being on the side rather than the center. The XDA reader also discovered the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Easter Ed, which is the same as the current Jelly Bean one.
