The pictures further confirm the rumor that Google was going to Android 4.3 at Google I/O, but had to cancel it at the last moment for some unknown reason. They also confirm that the next version of Android will indeed be called Jelly Bean.

Rumours suggest that Google will be announcing Android 4.3 and a Nexus variant of the HTC One sometime next week or on 10th June.
