Google I/O is just around the corner and rumors about the new Android OS are a buzzing like crazy . This past week we discovered the existence of Google’s new OS Android 4.3. Now, if that really is Key Lime Pie is yet to be found out but what we have found out thanks to HTC are two new features coming with the new Android OS.

HTC had put up a meeting posting , and had said, they would provide an over view about Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Open GL ES 3.0, which they said would arrive on Android devices. HTC’s Dario Laverde later sent a statement to Slashgear that though the meet up woull bring out some surprises they were not claiming unannounced new features in their earlier statement.

Whatever the case may be, we do know that these Two features would be talked about there. Bluetooth Low Energy or Bluetooth Smart is used fro heart rate monitors, key finders and multi-sensor kits (temperature, pressure, humidity, accelerometer). This feature has been supported by a couple of Android devices but it not an official part of Android as yet.

Open GL ES 3.0 is a graphics setting supported by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processors. This processor is currently found on the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One, and with this new graphics enhancements we can’t wait to see what new games will use its full potential.
