A file attached to a Google+ post may have just revealed the final nomenclature for Android O. And as many rumours and speculations have said, Google seems to be going ahead with the name Oreo. The post in question was spotted on Google+, that announced the eclipse teaser for Android O. The post has now been deleted, but showed a file named “GoogleOreo_Teaser_0817_noDroids(1).mp4”.
Google’s Pixel devices are expected near the end of this year, and the company is expected to focus on camera prowess once again.
Google has been known to change the nomenclature for Android before, so it’s possible Oreo may not be the name after all, especially after this leak. Other names suggested before have included Orangina, Octopus and many more. The creator of Android is expected to announced the next edition of Android on August 21, while the OS will officially come on its Pixel 2 smartphones later this year.
Of course, Google has already released developer versions of Android O, which can be downloaded on Pixel and Nexus devices. This is a practice Google started last year, where the company gives developers (and users) access to the operating system months before actually launching it.
Furthermore, Google’s Pixel devices are expected near the end of this year, and the company is expected to focus on camera prowess once again. It’s unclear whether the Android O camera app will bring any hints to the new Pixel’s camera, but one can hope for the best.
