A Few Things We Might See Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
- Slightly Improved UI: Ice Cream Sandwich is already a radical update to previous Android versions, so it is likely Google will limit itself to only minor refinements, such as different search bar visuals.
- Chrome: A leaked screenshot showed that Chrome will replace the stock browser, which is not a bad thing.
- No Flash Support: Google announced months ago that Flash will no longer be supported after Ice Cream Sandwich. It is still unclear whether Google will keep its promise.
- Better File Manager: Current Android stock file manager has limited capabilities. With Jelly Bean, we may see file manager features that are only available previously in 3rd party apps.
- More Focus on Tablet: Rumors indicated that Jelly Bean is a shift toward tablet.
- Voice Assistant: As Apple has launched Siri and Samsung launched S-Voice (Samsung Galaxy S III). For Google, this should be a good time to release a stable version of “Majel”.
Better virtual keyboard: The new keyboard may be integrated with a voice assistant and may easily switch between languages.
