It is pretty evident that the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update is on it's way. Previously a Nexus 4 running on the new operating system was spotted in Thailand Mobile Expo. Also a trusted source told Gizbot that the OS is very much real and Indian mobile vendors including Zen Mobile and Micromax are already working on it. However, Google has chosen to stay silent regarding this.
Getting to the interesting part, Google's new promo video showcasing an updated Gmail UI could be possibly hinting towards impending Android 4.3 update. As history speaks, Google is known to hint the upcoming Android Operating System by setting the time on the device same as the Android version no it's running on. The new promotional video shows a Nexus 4's time set to 4:30, possibly hinting the Android 4.3. Is all this just a coincidence or is there some kind of a Da Vinci Code going around here? Will the operating system be unveiled on June 10?
