It’s only been less than a year since we found out about the current version of Android, Nougat, and we’re already preparing for the next iteration of Google’s mobile operating system. And just recently, the name of the new version of Android might just have been leaked by one of the company’s executives.
Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google’s senior vice-president of Android, Chrome OS, and Play, tweeted a picture of an Oreo cake seemingly hinting at the name of Android’s next iteration. The current version of Android is Nougat so the next version’s name will start with an “O”, as is the naming convention of Google for its Android iterations.
It has to be noted though that Lockheimer has previously teased possible names for Android versions that never became official so we’ll have to take this supposed leak with a grain of salt. We’ll just have to wait for next month, if Google sticks to its usual schedule of announcements, to truly find out what the name of the next iteration of Android is.
As for the features of the next version of Android, there’s really not much information out yet but with Google I/O only a few months away, it shouldn’t take long before we start seeing teasers and leaks about what we’ll see in the new version.
