A few days ago, one of Qualcomm‘s roadmaps leaked all over the Internet before getting pulled after Android Police, which first reported on it, got a nastygram over copyright infringement. While the original leak showed some sensitive information about Qualcomm, new information from the leaked slides has appeared, pointing to a spring release of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
Both sources familiar with the matter and multiple reports have stated that the leaked Qualcomm slides contain information about it and Google’s plans over the coming months. Among the plans is a spring 2013 K-release of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. The mobile operating system itself is also detailed in the leaks.
Of course, while it is nice to get confirmation, this isn’t the most surprising batch of information to ever leak. Google’s upcoming I/O event is when new iterations of Android are announced, and nothing had suggested that wouldn’t be the case for Key Lime Pie. The event will take place on May 15 through 17.
Whether the leaked information was taken down because of the Google materials it contained, or because of the Qualcomm data (or perhaps both) is unknown. If the quick suppression of the leaks indicate anything, though, it is that the information they contained is true – companies don’t often go to such efforts to eradicate leaks that contain false info, after all.
