PhoneArena, which got the images, claims it will run on Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of RAM. However, its source claims it won’t be running Android Jelly Bean, which is the rumored next version of Android that is expected to be showcased at Google I/O and would rather feature Android 4.1. Probably, the next version of Android is not that big an update to warrant Android 5.0 but it still could be called Jelly Bean.
