The Android 8 or possibly Android 8.0 is round the corner and most certainly it will be the name starting with the English letter “O”. And yes, expect the preview at the Google I/O 2017.
The Android Nougat 7.0 and the corresponding versions haven’t even visited all the smartphones, and we are already staring at Android Nougat 8 or could be 8.0. And in all probabilities, it will be the Google I/O 2017, which is just a few weeks away. As far as the I/O 2017 is concerned, it will take place at the Mountain View during May 17-19.
The Google I/O is the yearly developer conference, which is a platform for the company to bring out their latest offerings in the field of software development. Soon after Google released the Android Nougat version in August last year, the company released the maintenance releases namely 7.1, 7.1.1 and 7.1.2.
What will be Android 8.0 be christened as?
As we all know, Google has always kept a series of naming their operating system platform in alphabetical order with each newer version being named with a later tasty eatable. So, as currently, we are with Android Nougat, it is obvious that we will have something with the later “O”.
This is the history of the names of the Android platform versions so far. Starting with Cupcake, Google moved on to Donut, Eclair, and Froyo. Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean followed later. The next versions were KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and the latest being the Nougat.
And as expected, the next version of the OS would be starting with the letter “O”. So, what could that be?
Here are the names that are being in the talks at the moment. The first one is Oreo, which is at the top of the list at the Xiaomi MIUI forum followed by Orange.
