The second half of the year is when Google updates Android and this year, it’s Android O. While there have been a lot of leaks and rumors around Android O features and specifications, we’re still waiting for the finer details. As per naming convention, Android O would be named after a popular dessert. Though no official date has been unveiled by the company, considering August is almost half gone, the official announcement cannot be far off. As per latest reports, Android O will be officially announced and rolled out starting August 21. That is barely a week from now.
August 21 will be when US will witness the event. Google has timed the launch of Android O with the eclipse considering during the solar eclipse, it is just the ring around the sun that is visible in the sky, in the shape of a big O. Apart from Android Oreo, there have been no new names suggested for the upcoming Android OS. Some of the older options suggested are Android Oatmeal Cookie. However, a recent developer’s preview of Android 8.0 showed an Octopus, which has now confused people as to what the actual name might be, Not only Ruddock, but even Evan Blass has mentioned on Twitter that Android 8.0 will officially arrive on August 21.
