The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been brought out by Google at its I/O Developer’ Conference. The I/O stand for Input/Output and Innovation in the Open. Google is claiming that the Jelly Bean is the smoothest and fastest version of Android.
Jelly Bean is the newest version of Android. It is focused on improving the performance of the operating system. Jelly Bean will give power to the next batch of Android smartphones and will also get integrated in the older handsets any time soon. The curtains were raised on this system at Moscone West Center in San Francisco few days ago.
Google is calling the launch of Jelly Bean `Project Butter’. It is a processing framework that makes the entire Android experience feel responsive and smoother. To cite an example, if a user touches the screen, the system will be proactive and receptive to where the user might tap next and it will be ready to pre-load the required application or animation faster.
Jelly Bean will also give the CPU a big boost whenever the screen gets activated to enhance the touch performance. It will also reduce the CPU voltage when the screen is not in use while conserving the battery. The load time for applications has been reduced and people may get impressed by the results. The general navigation system will be faster and smoother.
Project Butter will involve Jelly Bean’s frame rate to 60 fps (frames per second). V-sync has been implemented and triple buffering will be possible. The three main hardware components will be working in sync to their maximum potential and these components are CPU, GPU and Display.
The developers will also have access to a new tool called `Systrace’ in the Jelly Bean that will highlight what the engine is executing.
