On Wednesday, Google’s head of Android and Chrome, Sundar Pichai announced that the Mountain View-based giant will host the I/O 2014 developer conference on June 25-26. In an attempt to find out whether we’ll get to see the next Android iteration at I/O we got in touch with a person familiar with the matter who revealed for us that Google will not introduce Android 4.5 during the aforementioned event. A Google Dublin employee said to us that his superiors have told him that Android 4.5 will be officially unveiled in July along with a new tablet, dubbed Nexus 8. He also confirmed for us that the I/O 2014 conference will focus on new services Google is planning to bring on the market. Our source also mentioned that Google will no longer develop a 7-inch Nexus tablet, because of the heavy competition on the segment.
