Version 2.2 of Android, which is as yet unreleased, has apparently been spotted in action in some leaked snaps.
The pictures apparently show the HTC Magic smartphone running Android version 2.2, which is news that will please anyone who is committed to a lengthy contract on the ageing handset and in need of a software upgrade.
Images of the latest iteration of the operating system were seemingly unearthed by Mobiflip, although many in the tech sphere are unconvinced that they are little more than well crafted fakes.
News of developments comes Android 2.2 is increasingly leaving its traces around the internet, with the latest rumour being that the delay of the Android 2.1 update on the HTC Hero could be a ploy to allow version 2.2 to be release simultaneously on the Magic and other older Android-based smartphones.
Google has not commented on the validity of the images which are so basic that they offer very little to go on.
