Android 4.2 was made official only a few weeks ago, and it’s running officially only on a handful of Nexus-branded devices, so it’s definitely too early to talk about Google’s future Android version, which could very well be Android 5.0.0 that could be known to the world as Key Lime Pie.
But a wild Monday rumor tells us that there might be a device out there already running the new Android version. Obviously we’ll take everything with a huge grain of salt for now, so let’s look at what the report says.
The Android device in question that’s running Android 5.0.0 in the NenaMark benchmark test above is apparently a Sony LT30i that’s equipped with a 720p HD display (1280 x 720 resolution,) 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 processor and a Qualcomm Adreno 220 GPU.
For what it’s worth, the Sony Xperia T, the company’s current flagship handset, or the James Bond phone, is also known as model number LT30p, but depending on who you ask or what you search for online, you’ll find the Xperia T referred to as the LT30i as well, especially in rumors that preceded the official announcement of the Bond phone.
So in case the leak is legit, is the benchmark in the screenshot above actually showing us a Sony Xperia T version running Key Lime Pie? When it comes to specs and features Xperia T LT30p features a 720p HD display, 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260A SoC and Qualcomm Adreno 225 GPU.
We’ll definitely be back with more news on this Key Lime Pie leak as soon as we have them.

It could be a fake, you could go to Build.prop and just create a BRAND NEW MODEL in it and say you have Android 70 !!!! This is also used as a hack, For example, If Box.com is offering a 50 GB for the New Nexus 7, You could go to build.prop and say that your Manufacturer is Google and the Model is the Nexus 4 and then you reboot after that, Box.com will think you have a Nexus 4 !!!!! So it might just be a person wandering around faking stuff …. Besides, Google are smarter than to let their Beta Tests flow to the Public THAT Easily !!!!
Maybe this is a future Sony Nexus release in testing… Although I really don’t think that’s the case, I think that this is probably just a fake through build.prop (Y)
could be an early build, being tested on a generic testing device. too early to tell, next flavor of android is at least 6-8 months away. I think google is trying to speed up the update cycle by giving early builds to manufacturers so that when android 5.0 is announced, people wont have to wait so long.
That’s obviously a FAKE buildprop on a samsung phone. Look at the info. It says CPU: 1.6Ghz pegasusq – which is the default CPU Governor in the newest Samsung phones
JB 4.2 already has a lot of bugs and Sony announced LP?! love Sony but i hope it’s true.
