Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie Powered LG Optimus G2 Release Date: May 2013

The Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie-powered LG Optimus G2 smartphone release date is set for sometime next year.

Korean Media is reporting that LG electronics has started the development of the LG Optimus G2 and is planning to release the device in May of 2013.

This new Optimus will pack a 5-inch Full HD LCD panel with 440ppi pixel density.

Other specifications on the handset include a 2.0GHz quad-core MSM8974 Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Prime CPU, 4G LTE, and a camera with backlight prevention technology.

The Android 5.0, release must be quickly approaching as the new software appeared in benchmarks earlier this month.

The device running the software was the Sony LT30i and it appeared on the NenaMark Benchmark charts.

It listed that it was running Android 5.0, which is rumored to be called Key Lime Pie, in order to follow in the footsteps of previous builds of the software.

Key Lime Pie will run on both tablets and smartphones.

Android 4.2 was originally believed to be the long awaited Key Lime Pie, but that rumor was squashed when Google confirmed that build would retain the JellyBean name.

Android 4.2 debuted on the Samsung Nexus 10 tablet and LG Nexus 4 smartphone.

The update is expected to roll out to many devices in the near future. However, some that have already downloaded it are experiencing problems.

A bug on the software prevents users from selecting December for events such as birthdays inside the People app.

Google has stated that it will fix the bug before the beginning of next month.

"We discovered a bug in the Android 4.2 update, which makes it impossible to enter December events in optional fields of the People app," said Google on the Android Google+ page. "Rest assured, this will be fixed soon so that those of you with December birthdays and anniversaries won't be forgotten by your friends and family."
