Sources speaking to ThisIsMyNext say Jelly Bean will be the next version of the OS after this November's launch of ICS, although other sources have claimed Jelly Bean is in a very short list and has not been selected yet.
ICS is said to be a huge release, with "major architectural, functional, and design changes," and will not be a rehashed Gingerbread or Honeycomb like critics worry.
Still unconfirmed, ICS is also said to integrate Google TV, the struggling platform which lets users stream content from their TVs.
Android 4.0 will also finally unify the fragmented smartphone and tablet offerings.
When Jelly Bean is launched, it is expected to be a minor update, perhaps a 4.1.
