Someone there at Google must be really fond of sweets! When Google released the final version of Android N in August last year, gave to this version the name of an other sweet, as the company has given before to all previous versions. The name as we all know is Android Nougat. As we know the dates for Google I/O 2017 are already fixed and it’s just few months left for the big show to happen. Google I/O is a big platform for Google to unveil its next version of Android operating system. So it will be natural in this event to hear the name of the next version, Android O.
Android O: What sweet will have this time or not!?
For someone that keeps track of the names of the Android versions, will see that all of them are names from sweets. So I guess and Android O will be the name of some sweet. So far we have had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and now Nougat.
According to the names given so far, my guess is that the new name will be some sweet starting from O. The thing is, there really aren’t that many to search. Few of the names suitable for Android O are Oreo, Orange, Oatcake and Oh! Henry . As of now, these are the only names suggestible for the Google O update. We can expect to see the list going big in the coming days as more and more people will sharing the names for the Android 8.0.
When we will see Android 8.0?
As we have mentioned before, the next version of Android will be unveiled at the Google I/O 2017 event scheduled from 17 May to 19 May 2017. It is the 11th annual I/O conference taking place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. My guess is that we can expect the Android O Developer Preview being announced ahead of Google I/O 2017 event, and the final version being pushed via OTA starting from August.
Will my mobile manage to get Android O update?
This is the 1.000.000$ question, will my old mobile get the latest update from Google, will it get Android O!? From what I know Google Nexus smartphones are the first to receive Android O update followed by the latest flagship smartphones from well-known manufacturers like Sony, Samsung, HTC, Xiaomi, Huawei, and Motorola. For the rest we just have to wait….
