Gingerbread is still on the top position but losing its market share every month. The main reason behind Jelly Bean’s higher share is the Galaxy S3; Samsung has sold around 50 million devices since the release. Now Galaxy S4 is in the market and it is expected to push Jelly Bean on the top position in coming months. Google has also changed the way it used to collected Android version’s data. Now it collects data when a user checks in the Play Store.  Android 1.6 and 2.1 versions are almost out of the market now. While Froyo is still sharing 3.7% Android devices.
