According to androidandme’s new rumor Android 4.2 will be packed with new enhancements to Google Now, battery improvements thanks to something dubbed Project Roadrunner. Android 4.2 will also brings new version of Google play and Video Player.

Digging deep Project Roadrunner will improve battery life as revealed by source of android and me. Google Play will see major improvement in billing area, personalised search and more integration for notifications will occur in new version. Video player will have major revamp along with new APIs for integration to other apps. Similar changes will occur in Google Play also.

According to another rumor from Android Police which suggests that new phones and new nexus tablet from Motorola, both will have android 4.2 on board.

But all these are rumors we still think that LG will present next nexus device. So just wait and watch.

Since many of you will likely not upgrade to LG’s oft-rumored Nexus when it drops next month, you probably care more about the version of Android that will ship on it rather than the device itself. According to a massive rumor post today from our buddy Taylor over at Android and Me, the list of new features could be extensive, as the build gets bumped up to Android 4.2 (probably still Jelly Bean).

Customization Center

The next version of Android may include some sort of customization center. The basic idea here, is to give average Android users a centralized place to go to change ringtones, wallpapers, and other settings that in the past, haven’t always been that easy to find. There may also be new “templates” that a user can choose from to quickly change the color scheme or appearance of the UI, including icons.

In bigger news, this may be the location that Google allows OEMs to offer up their custom skin in favor of stock Android. There is a chance in either this version of Android or the next iteration, that users will have a choice between stock and a skin like TouchWiz or Sense. But wait, what about updates? According to this rumor, the device will receive stock Android updates quickly, just like Nexus devices do now. Manufacturers will still be able to update their skin on their own time, but the skinned version of Android may not be accessible until it has been updated. Either that, or the user can wait to update Android until the OEM has their skin ready.

There is a lot going on there, but it could mean big things for those of us that hate skins and like timely updates.

New Google Play

We have always wondered why Google Play hasn’t been forced to the forefront of Android. With Android 4.2, that may change to include notifications for promotional campaigns (optional of course), personalized searches, more billing options, and easier in-app purchases. While I’ve never been a huge fan of advertisements in my notification area, I wouldn’t mind knowing from time to time if there is a sale on products in Google Play.

Google Now

Google Now may receive an update that allows users to ask it for guidance on changing settings on their phone. For example, one could ask Google Now to help adjust volume or brightness or turn Bluetooth on. Rather than solely being a Google Search tool, it could take care of simple device functions as well.

Project Roadrunner

You all remember Project Butter and its focus on improving UI speed, right? According to today’s rumor, there may be another special project named Project Roadrunner which has a focus on improving battery life. Details are scarce, but one of the number one complaints around these parts when it comes to Android has always been poor battery life. Rather than worrying about creating massive batteries in slim shells, Google may be trying to solve the problem on a software front.

Talk about a wealth of info to digest. It’s tough to tell if any of it will come to fruition in Android 4.2, a later version, or at all. Most of it sounds like functionality that will make the experience seamless overall, something I think we can all appreciate.

Anything in particular standing out to you?

You do realize that most people who have android don't care and don't even know what version of us they have. Hence fragmentation is only something less than 1% of android users care about. And even still if you wanted to you could put ics or jb on your phone

No iOS updates are a joke but Andorid updates are available to stock Andorid phones when they come out....if not anything, you can always put a custom rom on androids

And this updates sounds great...I'm trying to see project roadrunner and google now updates because G Now might be one of the best features on a phone I've seen

That is one way to get updates earlier; however, there are disadvantages of purchasing a Nexus phone. Nexus phones typically do no have a micro sd card, and the last iteration didn't have the specs of the GS3. I will admit that was Samsung's fault because it did not want the Nexus phone to outshine its upcoming GS3.

Google has the market share and influence to do what Apple did from the beginning: No carrier bloatware or branding. Personally, I think this is the direction in which Google needs to go. Furthermore, Google needs to require manufacturers to have hardware minimums that will allow for at least two OS updates even though Android is an open platform.

What Nexus phone has ever been top of the line, hardware wise? They're meant to display software more than anything.

the micro sd card slot really isnt a big IF the phone comes with a decent amount of storage..32 gb, 64gb. and there is already a hardware minimum with android. 1 gb of ram, 1 ghz processor and there might be something else.

^^^^ This. the galaxy nexus did come with the first 720p screen here in the US if Im not mistaken but you're right about the focus being on the software
