Months of speculation and rumours have finally revealed what the next version of the Android OS is being called. The Android O, an increment over the Android 7 Nougat will be most likely called Android Oreo (not Oatmeal Cookie as previously rumoured).
According to a post by 9to5Google, Google put out a teaser on Google+ to promote its 21 August launch reveal. Turns out that the launch reveal video had a name and it was called GoogleOreo_Teaser_0817_noDroids (1).mp4′. So really, there’s not much left to confirm beyond this.
It’s been more than a year since the last version of Android came and after several iterations of the Nougat, Android lovers are asking Google to release the next build as soon as possible. The first phone to feature the Android O might be the Google Pixel 2 is reports are to believed.
However, Google took down the promo video and replaced it with the same one, only this time with a different files name, ‘OctopusTeaser.mp4’. Which could also mean that the new update may be called as Octopus. But Oreo seems more believable since it is a known brand.
Just a short while ago, Google revealed the launch date for Android O. The event is set for 21 August at 2:40 PM ET and will take place in New York. As with all other Google events, it will be live streamed to the world. However, the event also coincides with the solar eclipse and from what we can tell from the launch website, Google is planning to make the most of it.
Oreo phones will soon hit markets, and it may be time for you to upgrade!
