Therefore, we may expect the new Android version to be released sooner than later. Interestingly, Google has the past record of naming Android versions based on popular desserts. Since this year Google is coming up with Android O, everyone is curious to know what Google would be naming Android O. Would it be Android Oreo, Android Oatmeal Cookie or Android Orangesicle?
There are high speculations that the next Android would be called Android Oreo.
