Android 4.2’s version of Gmail leaked

Gmail from Android 4.2

The rumors about Android 4.2 and Nexus mobile from LG has been on a high these past few weeks. Many rumours surrounding Android 4.2 are proving to be false. Although, LG Nexus seems to be going in line with the information we are getting. We are yet to receive the release date of the product. But, info on Android 4.2 is coming right away.

A thread has been posted by one of the recognized contributors of XDA, mrmako777 that will guide the users through the process of installing the latest version of the Gmail application on their devices. This Gmail app is reportedly from the Android version that is yet to be released. Yes, we are talking about the leak of Android 4.2’ Gmail apk. It will be the first time the users will get to see a glimpse of the newest Android version.

In order to install this apk file, you may first require rooting your Android device. Then, the process is very easy. Firstly, you are supposed to uninstall the current Gmail application running on your Android device. This is where rooting comes into action. As Gmail is a system application on most Android devices, it cannot be uninstalled without rooting the device first. After getting rid of the old Gmail, you will have to install the latest Gmail APK.

The new app will allow pinch zooming, swipe actions, managing individual attachments and many more new features yet to be discovered. A guidance video is provided by qbking77 on this original thread.
