Android 8 Might Be Named as Oatmeal Cookie, But We Can Still Root for Oreo

Android 0 debuted in March this year since then three developer previews of popular OS have been released. Google has revealed a lot of information about Android 0 except for what ‘O’ stands for?. The name like N-Nougat and K-KitKat stands right in place, but many peoples are rooting for “O-Oreo.”

What Does “O” Stands for in Android O?

Google reveals the name of next Android version at the end of event year. This time around Internal source code Android O seems to have published name before the official announcement. This revelation is not what we were hoping for; an internal source code mentions ‘oc-dev’ various times in PRs where “OC” could stand for Oatmeal Cookie.

Another evidence for Oatmeal Cookie is when code indicates that Google Pixel is running on Android O Developer Preview or “oc-dev.” It apparently means that the new OC is a synonym for Android O Developer Preview and may stand for Oatmeal Cookie.

Admittedly, the proofs are explanatory, but Google is unpredictable and could turn the tables anytime. Ever since its inception, Android O has been referred to as Android Oreo by many enthusiasts, but it could only turn out to be a reality if Google partners with Cadbury like its did it with Nestle for KitKat. To recall, Google did collaborate with Cadbury for the Oreo Dunk Challenge game, but that could just be limited to the game and not Android version name.

After the third developer preview of Android O, it is confirmed that version number would start with Android 8.0. Now only mystery left is What does “O” stands for. Google has released Developer Preview 3 with Android 8.0 APIs in early June, and the announcement has made that another Preview will release in July that will bring “near-final system images.” Google also says that Developer Preview 3 of Android O has final API level 26 optimized for bugs fixes and tweaks.
