At 12PM ET, Google is hosting a breakfast with Chrome and Android senior vice president, Sundar Pichai for reporters. There are many theories about what could be in store – like the expected launch of the new Nexus 7 tablet, which Best Buy reportedly is already excepting preorders.
Google hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but leaks and rumors point convincingly toward the new Nexus 7 having Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the latest version of the operating system, and will have two cameras.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will supposedly add a new version of the camera app with more controls and settings for the user. It’s also thought that 4.3 will support Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Reports so far also say it looks like it will only bring minor updates to Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie set to bring more major changes later this year.
