Ahead of the expected launch of the next major version of Android at Google I/O in May, Google is reportedly readying another Jelly Bean update. According to The International Business Times, Android 4.2.2 is currently undergoing testing internally on a variety of Nexus devices, including the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and the older Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It was first spotted back in early January on a Nexus 4.

The update is described as “minuscule at best.” New features are likely to be kept for Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. Instead, Android 4.2.2 will instead focus on bug fixes and security enhancements. A changelog is not yet available but one fix mentioned will address the Bluetooth streaming issue on the Nexus 7.

Android 4.2.2 is reportedly set to launch in “a couple of weeks” with a release window of mid-February to mid-March.

Google may be readying to push out an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update in the near future. Reports of devices running Android 4.2.2 have surfaced in both Malaysia and Brazil.

In Malaysia, Lowyat reviewers received an 8GB Google Nexus 4 review unit with Android 4.2.2 preloaded. Upon initial assessment, it does not appear to come with any major differences over Android 4.2.1, the current official release. The build number is new and comes with the “dev-keys” tag, suggesting that this could be a developer build.

A second device running Android 4.2.2 has also been found in Brazil. Much like the Malaysian unit, it appears to have come with Android 4.2.2 preloaded. There is no word if it also sports a build number with the “dev-keys” tag.

Google Android 4.2.1 has not been without its bugs and issues, including random reboots (experienced on our Gadgetorama unit when location services are turned on). Hopefully Android 4.2.2 will focus on fixing these issues.
