While Android 4.3 never actually materialized at Google I/O last month, the latest version of Jelly Bean keeps popping up and making cameos all over. It most recently appeared in the specs for LG’s Optimus L7 II Dual (that name’s a handful, we know) on the company’s website. The handset was running Android 4.1 when we played with it at Mobile World Congress and appears to have shipped with that OS version in some markets. Obviously, it’s only a matter of time until Android 4.3 becomes official but we fully expect it to debut on Google’s own Nexus 4 flagship before coming to any other device. In light of this, and considering the Optimus L7 II features a 4.3-inch screen, perhaps we’re just looking at a typo? We’ve reached out to LG for clarification — we’ll keep you posted.
