Android Oreo Is Coming

Google is expected to soon announce more details on version 8.0 of Android, which we know to be codenamed Android O. But the biggest question about Android O — more so than what new features it will bring to the mobile OS or if Google will be able to actually get carriers and hardware companies to offer the update to older phones — remains unanswered: what is Android O going to be called?

To recap, so far we’ve had:

  • Cupcake (Android 1.5)
  • Donut (Android 1.6)
  • Eclair (Android 2.0)
  • Froyo (Android 2.2)
  • Gingerbread (Android 2.3)
  • Honeycomb (Android 3.0)
  • Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0)
  • Jelly Bean (Android 4.1)
  • KitKat (Android 4.4)
  • Lollipop (Android 5.0)
  • Marshmallow (Android 6.0)
  • Nougat (Android 7.0)


So what will Andriod O be called, Android Oatmeal / Oatmeal Cookie / Oatmeal Raisin/ Android Orange Sherbert but Android Oreo sounds much more better, it sounds like it was the name already. It’s entirely possible we won’t get a name for O at Google I/O this year. Google has historically tended to wait until later in the summer for name reveals, and last year the company simply punted on the issue entirely and opened up a public forum for the internet to submit their best ideas before settling on Nougat.

So good luck Android Oreo
