We all know very well that recently we have seen the release of the latest version of Android, of course, Android 8.0 Oreo. It is the Google’s Android mobile operating system, which would be arriving soon on Pixel devices and then later on other smartphones. However, now speculations about the next Android version, Android P is already started appearing.
What Will Android P Be Called?
Hiroshi Lockheimer is vice president of Android and a well-known joker. That is why you do not have to take your claims seriously, especially when they are not completely round. This is what happens with two of his last tweets, in which he speculates with the possible name of the next version of Android: Oreo or P.
This known brand of cookies meets the first requirement to name the operating system: be a sweet. One of the curiosities of Android is that each version is named after one of these sugary foods. Now, according to Lockheimer on Twitter, Oreo cookies could be the ones chosen. The previous editions received the following nickname.
- Ice Cream Sandwich
- Jelly Bean
The way to open the ban for speculation is the same as other times and consists of tweeting an image of these cookies. It has already done it other times, although not always the published photo ends up coinciding with the final name of Android. Hence we must be cautious in assessing the veracity of this rumor.

Without going any further, he also tweeted another image of the Pocky chocolate sticks yesterday. Does this mean that the letter P will be chosen for the beginning of the surname of the next update? It could be, or not, especially considering that Oreo is a trademark.

In any case, what is confirmed is that in the tech giant Google and think about the next update of Android. 6.0, called Marshmallow, has achieved a very important market share. However, Nougat has not done so and does not appear to be doing so throughout 2016. It has been available for quite a few months and manufacturers have not yet come to the fore.
One of the main problems facing this mobile operating system, the most popular in the world, is fragmentation. By letting the tech giant Google companies adapt the OS to their needs, updates are delayed to infinity, causing the total Android phones to run four or five different versions of the firmware, with the problems of security and compatibility that entails.
