It won't be a surprise if we see the next version of Android being made available by Google in the next few days.

A Nexus 4 running Android 4.3, the next iteration of Google's mobile operating system was recently spotted at the Thailand Mobile Expo. The phone's About screen was pictured depicting Android 4.3 as the OS version. It also 'confirms' that the version will indeed be referred to as Jelly Bean going by the Jelly Bean image with the easter egg that can be invoked from the phone's settings menu.

In addition to this, another photograph reveals an updated camera app that features a new user interface with the options shortcuts more accessible than they are at the moment. There may be other changes as well in addition to the ones pictured but we'll only know when we see them.

Google did not announce any new Nexus devices or updated Android version during the Google I/O conference but it looks like it will soon release Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. As we reported earlier, there are rumours that Google would start selling a White Nexus 4 on the Google Play Store from June 10th and it would run Android 4.3, the next iteration of Google's mobile operating system.

While Google was expected to announce Android 4.3 during the Google I/O keynote, it chose to skip the announcement and instead made a slew of service and developer related announcements including new features for Google+, the Hangouts unified messaging app, updated Maps, Google Play for Education, a music streaming service,and updated Search among others.

A few days back, Bluetooth Special Interest Group in a press statement confirmed that Google has committed to bringing support for Bluetooth Smart to future versions of the operating system. Bluetooth Smart allows compatible phones to take advantage of low power consumption with Bluetooth Smart ready devices like the Fitbit Flex or Pebble mart watch. The statement said that the newest version of Android OS natively supports Bluetooth Smart Ready technology. So it might be a feature that Google includes in Android 4.3.
