Mountain View-based Internet giant Google is gearing up for the release of a new flavor of its Android operating system, and it has already started to push new code to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), it seems.

The new source code arrived in AOSP with two new tags, namely android-4.2.1_r1.1 and android-4.2.1_r1.2, Android Police notes.

Furthermore, it seems that the android-4.2.1_r1.2 code features build number JOP40G, which is the same as the one rumored a few days ago to have been attached to the Android 4.2.2 update (apparently, JOP40F and JOP40E are mentioned as well).

Some of the changes included in JOP40G are related to Nexus 4 (mako), such as reduced power consumption in off-mode charging, and enabled sleep in off-mode charging.

Changes that will affect other Android handsets will also be included in the new release, it seems.
