Android 4.3 Jelly Bean spotted at Asian tech conference

To the disappoint of many, the latest version of Android was a no-show at Google I/O last week. While reports in recent months had widely hinted at a major update - to version 5.0, "Key Lime Pie" - reports a few weeks ago suggested that Google had pushed back those plans to appease its OEM partners, and that the next version will instead be an incremental update to version 4.3, making it the third significant Android update to carry the "Jelly Bean" moniker. 

Evidence is mounting to support that assessment, as a user over on the XDA Developers forums spotted a Nexus 4 at the Thailand Mobile Expo 2013 with Android 4.3 on board. Since then, a video has popped up on YouTube showing the device in action, including an updated camera app and a shaky-cam glance at a few other bits: 

If you were in any doubt about the authenticity of the app, this image was posted on the official Thailand Mobile Expo 2013 page on Facebook, including the easter egg screen showing 'Android 4.3 Jelly Bean': 

There's been no official confirmation from Google regarding Android 4.3 or when it might arrive, but Android And Me reported last week that 4.3 will launch on June 10, alongside a new white version of the Nexus 4.
