The Internet search giant is all set to host Google I/O in a few hours from now. As per news rumors, the company will be unveiling the new iteration of Android OS at this event. For years, Google has stuck to the 4.x versions but today, it is expected to release Android 5.0, which is touted to be a major release.

As per the 'reliable sources' speaking for Bulgarian tech insider Nixanbal, this version will indeed be called Lollipop. Google has a tradition of naming its Android version after deserts and so if this news is indeed true, then we will not be very surprised. Here is the full list for people who might be unaware about Android's previous versions:

Android 4.4 Kitkat

Android 4.1-4.3 Jelly Bean

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Android 3.0 Honeycomb

Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Android 2.2 Froyo

Android 2.0-2.1 Eclair

Android 1.6 Doughnut

Android 1.5 Cupcake

It is expected that with Android 5.0, Google will be bringing some UI changes to Android. Furthermore, it looks like the design will take the center stage this year, with 11 sessions at the Google I/O dedicated to multiscreen/unification, interface, and functionality. In tune with the past precedents, LolliPop is expected to debut initially on the next Nexus, with the Google Edition and other Nexus devices receiving it soon after.

We will be bringing in the latest from the Google I/O to you, so stay tuned with Gizmodo India. [Nixanbal translated ]
