Android 5.0 release date

Until Android 4.4 was announced we had expected the Android 5.0 release date to be some time in October 2013. We now expect to see Android 4.4 KitKat launch during that month. In the face of that point release, we think it’s now likely that we’ll see Android 5.0 shown in mid-2014, quite possibly at Google IO, Google’s annual two-day developer conference in San Francisco.

That’s a year on from when we had originally expected to see Android 5.0, which was at Google IO 2013, which took place from May 15 to May 17 2013. Given that Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at 2012’s IO conference, it seemed reasonable to expect to see Android 5.0 at the 2013 event.

But on 13 May 2013, we got our confirmation that there would be no serving of Android 5 at Google IO from Sundar Pichai, Google’s new head of Android. Pichai told Wired that 2013’s IO is “not a time when we have much in the way of launches of new products or a new operating system”. Boo! “Both on Android and Chrome, we’re going to focus this IO on all the kinds of things we’re doing for developers so that they can write better things,” he added.
