Rumour: Android 4.1 will be called Jellybean and will launch on Google Nexus 7 tablet

Earlier we heard that Google is planning to launch five Nexus devices on Android’s fifth birthday, and will be launching its very first Nexus tablet. For now we knew that the Nexus tablet will be manufactured by Asus and will run on an Nvidia quad-core processor costing at about $199.


While the Android version on the tablet was unconfirmed, rumours are suggesting that it might be Android Jellybean.

Now info coming from Rightware’s Basemark ES 2.0 Taiji benchmark test, says that the tablet will have NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 chipset and a 7 inch display with a 1280×768 resolution. The benchmark’s raw information also showed a label saying Android 4.1 OS with the build number JRN51B. Now it is being speculated that the ‘JRN’ suggests Jellybean.

Could this be true? We did hear that Jellybean might not be a major release, so will Google just announce Android 4.1 Jellybean on the Nexus tablet and release Android 5.0 with previously rumoured five devices?
