Google has formally announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at the Google I/O 2012 developer conference. Android 4.1 focuses on giving end-users a faster and smoother UI experience. It has done this by extending vsync timing across all animation done by the Android framework, adding triple buffering in the graphics pipeline and reducing touch latency by anticipating where your finger will be at the time of the screen refresh.

Other features include a new home screen that automatically adapts to fit your icons and widgets, a powerful predictive keyboard, richer notifications that can be expanded/collapsed with a pinch, new Android Beam functionality that leverages Bluetooth for data transfer and offline voice typing. International users will be happy to hear that Jelly Bean will bring bi-directional text support for text such as Arabic or Hebrew. Overall there are a whole host of changes, to read more click here and here.
