Jelly Bean easter egg hints at next Android OS

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has only just landed – and it may have revealed a tell-tale pointer to the next version of Google's OS.

Since Android's confectionery-based naming convention follows an alphabetical order, we know K is coming next – with previous reports citing the name Key Lime Pie.

However, a potentially revealing easter egg has been spotted by Android Central.

In your Android device, go into Settings, About, and tap on the Android version four times, and you'll be treated to an image of falling jelly beans – and a candy cane.

Google declined to confirm the report.

Jelly Bean has four months of exclusivity on Google's Nexus phones and tablets before other Android devices even get a look in.
