Android 8 “O” will be the next major Android operating system release to come from Google this year. After the success of Android 7 “Nougat” – which is still rolling out onto many handsets – Google has been hard at work building the next iteration of Android for smartphones and tablets.
Currently very little is known about Android 8 “O”. We can make some educated guesses that it’ll integrate more closely with the Android Wear environment ahead of Android Wear 2, it’ll likely draw closer to Android TV interfaces too and – if rumours about Android and Chrome OS merging come true – we could see Android 8 “O” get some desktop interface benefits as well. It’s also likely we’ll see improvements to instant apps Google Assistant and various other features introduced in Android 7 Nougat.
First things first though, the really important question is what Google is going to name Android 8 “O”. Following Google’s standard alphabetical Android naming convention, Android 8’s name will start with the letter “O” and be some form of dessert, sweet or chocolate bar. If naming Android 8 “O” proves as tricky as “N”, it’s likely Google won’t bestow a name upon Android 8 until just before it launches – it may even open up the naming process to the public again.
To help all those Google bods reading this post right now (I know you definitely are!), here’s the Alphr team’s list of potential names of Android 8 “O”. Word of caution, Google, if you do use one of these names I’d like at least a 1% cut of all Android 8-based profits or a h/t in the developer notes.
Android 8 “O” release date: What Android 8 “O” could be called
- (Terry’s Chocolate) Orange
- Orange candy slices (you know the jelly ones your nan has at Christmas)
- Orbit (the chewing gum)
