We all know that recently, Google launched the developer preview images of Android O. Well, earlier it was hinted by many that the new operating system will have the name “Oreo”, but now the current leaks showing a different story.

Android O’s Final Name Have Just Been Uncovered

Each year the tech giant Google releases an important version of the operating system, usually with a larger numerical increment. It is true that sometimes we have seen how this has not been like this when you moved from Android 4.0 to 4.1 or 4.3 to 4.4. But for several versions, the changes have involved major version steps.

Next, to it, we have seen names, always of sweets, that accompany to the letter of the alphabet that touches that year. We know that in 2017 will see the light Android 8.0 and that the letter that corresponds is “O”. In the last hours, it has been published that Oatmeal Cookie (oat cookie) could be the name of this version, as some leaks and images coming from the internal code of the developers handle.

Development name is not the same as trade name

Some have ventured to venture that Android O would be that Oatmeal Cookie and seeing that name expressly shown in some Google I/O images reinforces their suspicions. However, it should be remembered that Google often makes differences between internal names and trade names.

In this case, the development name is Oatmeal Cookie almost completely discard it to be the commercial nomenclature. If we look back and see the names of the development of known versions we have verified that they had nothing to do with how we know them today.

In this way, Key Lime Pie ended up being Kit Kat and the fifth version was known as Lemon Meringue Pie although we call it Lollipop and Android Marshmallow was Macadamia Nut Cookie and yes, Nougat also had development name: New York Cheesecake.

So, what do you think is it possible that Android 8.0 will be named as Oatmeal Cookie?

At any time Google could change its way of calling different versions of the system but it would be logical to continue with the current implementation. Android 8.0 Oreo Cookie, for example, would still be valid and more striking, even though currently that is not confirmed officially.
