Android 4.3 for Google Nexus 4 leaks online via device backup
<a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289972==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/07/08/filing.hints.at.sooner.release.of.mobile.operating .system.update/" rel='nofollow'>Android 4.3</a> may have made an appearance on the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289973==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/07/08/limited.edition.white.smartphone.still.on.sale.at. t.mobile/" rel='nofollow'>Nexus 4</a>, ahead of its release. A screenshot and a backup of the mobile operating system have been posted to the <em>XDA developer</em> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289974==http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=43704783&postcount=478" rel='nofollow'>forum</a>, after Jeff Williams on <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289975==https://plus.google.com/114043356941421719155/posts/VUaTNUmT6Th" rel='nofollow'>Google+</a> was asked to prove his claim of receiving the Nexus 4 with it preinstalled instead of Android 4.2.<br />
<br />
The backup, confirmed <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289976==http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/07/17/breaking-android-4-3-for-google-nexus-4-leaks-jwr66n-heres-the-system-dump-download/" rel='nofollow'>by</a> <em>Android Police</em> as real and functional, shows it as build number JWR66N. Though the backup is functional, it is marginally incomplete due to missing parts for the radio and bootloader, but Williams hopes to add them in the next few days. Early examination of the backup seems to reveal it will still be called Jelly Bean rather than the expected Key Lime Pie, just as found in an <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289977==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/06/28/samsung.internal.test.of.android.43.allegedly.appe ars.on.google.edition.phone/" rel='nofollow'>earlier leak</a>, and it also has a new version of the Play Store. <br />
<br />
Yesterday, Google sent out <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289978==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/07/17/event.hosted.by.sundar.pichai.could.be.android.43. launch/" rel='nofollow'>invitations</a> to members of the media, asking them to attend a breakfast with Android head Sundar Pichai on July 24th. It is likely that a new version of Android will be revealed at the event, if not released, along with the possibility of new <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289979==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/07/17/quad.core.processor.4gb.of.ram.headline.specs.of.n ew.device/" rel='nofollow'>Nexus</a> devices.
