Google’s Android 4.3 will be coming in with OpenGL ES 3.0 for developers – this will open a lot of doors for next-generation games in an environment that brings a lot of support for higher-definition graphics and 3D gaming. Demoing 3D abilities with a showing by the folks at Silicon Studio, then moving on to a futuristic motorcycle game powered by the Unity gaming engine, Google made the case for Android being a prime spot for the next generation in groundbreaking mobile gaming graphics.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will be coming with a new set of DRM which will benefit hardware-based encryption for video. Google flashed one of the biggest names in video streaming – Netflix – on stage along with a note on how they’ll be taking advantage. This new DRM will allow Netflix to play 1080p video with any device working with Android 4.3 – and of course, the Nexus 7 (the new Nexus 7) will be able to take full advantage of it.
This update to Android will be appearing today – starting with Google’s Nexus devices like the Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and Nexus 4, then rolling out to Google Play edition smartphones “very soon”.Source
