Gingerbread (Android 2.3) was the recent leader when it came to the most dominant version of Android running on devices. Now, there is a new leader. The new dominant version of Android is Jelly Bean (Android 4.1 and Android 4.2).
These numbers come from Android’s official site, Android Developers. How did they arrive at these numbers? It explains, “Each snapshot of data represents all the devices that visited the Google Play Store in the prior 14 days.” It adds, “Data collected during a 14-day period ending on July 8, 2013.”
Without further ado, here are the numbers. The new leader is Jelly Bean, which dominates at 37.9%. It left Gingerbread behind, which is now at 34.1%. The third most dominant is Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is at 23.3%.
We’re not surprised Jelly Bean is now the dominant version of Android. After all, flagships such as the HTC One and Samsung galaxy S4 are proving to be popular in the market. These devices run Jelly Bean right off the bat.
