Google has released the latest monthly report on its Android distribution chart and table.
The search giant’s figures allow users and app developers see how the various Android versions are spread during the previous month.
However, the Android Developers blog notes that its data was collected during a 14-day period ending on 4 September 2012.
According to the chart, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the latest version of the mobile platform, increased from 0.8 percent to 1.2 percent over the last month; besides, only a handful of devices are running this version.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and its updates grew from 15.9 percent to 20.9 percent, which had the largest increase among its siblings.
Android 2.3 Gingerbread had 57.5 percent during the period, down from 60.6 percent last month.
18.3 percent of users were on older versions of Android: Android 1.5 Cupcake (0.2 percent), Android 1.6 Donut (0.4 percent), Android 2.1 Éclair (3.7 percent), and Android 2.2 Froyo (14 percent).
Android 3.X Honeycomb, the version exclusive to tablets, finished with 2.1 percent.
Other figures on the blog show how Android users still buy devices with normal display sizes – smartphones with screens near the 4-inch mark.
Moreover, Most android users own devices with hdpi resolution (200-300 pixels per inch, ppi) over lower ldpi and mdpi, but xhdpi is catching up.
