Android O release date rumours: Looking ahead to the next version of Android, expected at Google I/O on 17 May


The last variation of Android N was launched in August 2016 as Android Nougat, and we're checking out a similar timespan in 2017 for the launch of Android O, which will certainly more than likely be introduced at Google I/O on 17 May. However what will Android O be called? We assemble the Android O name and launch date rumours. Likewise see: Crucial Android apps as well as Ideal Android video games

Update 31 January: As we look ahead to Android O, there are still brand-new features and also repairs pertaining to Android Nougat. The other day Google made available a beta version of Android Nougat 7.1.2, which it claims is "a step-by-step maintenance release focused on improvements, so it includes a number of bugfixes and optimizations, in addition to a handful of enhancements for service providers and also users".

Android O: What will the following Android be called?
Adhering to Android Alpha as well as Android Beta, Google has constantly called its Android OS updates after pleasant treats, and in indexed order. So far we've had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Gelato Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat.

In 2017 Google will be looking for a sweet treat beginning with O. Difficulty is, there truly aren't that many. The Technology Expert group can generate Oreo, Orange, Oatcake and Oh! Henry (the last clearly being our favourite, offered this). It might even tremble things up entirely as well as stun us all with something like Android OMG. (We're joking, yet we sort of like it.).

Exactly what do you assume the next variation of Android will be called? Please comment below and allow us understand exactly what you assume.

Considered that Android Marshmallow was Android 6.0 and Android Nougat was Android 7.0-7.1, we would presume that Android O will be Android 8.0. But Google hasn't already always done things by doing this, and also Gelato Sandwich, Jelly Bean and also KitKat were all 4.x updates. Also see: Android Nougat testimonial.

When is Google I/O 2017?
Google I/O 2017: 17 - 19 May 2017
Traditionally Google makes use of Google I/O to announce the new update to its Android OS. The 11th yearly I/O meeting will take place between 17 and 19 May 2017 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Hill Sight, The golden state.

Android O release date rumours: When is Android O coming out?
Android O UK launch date: August/September 2017 (TBC)
Google shocked us in 2016 by taking the covers off the Developer Sneak peek of Android Nougat in advance of its summer Google I/O seminar, and again by unveiling the final launch with little excitement and no new equipment in August. The brand-new equipment came later on, with the Google Pixel as well as Pixel XL introduced in very early October.

Up previously, Google has actually constantly revealed the brand-new Android OS and also brand-new equipment together. The adjustment is probably due to the truth it is currently taking control over both the software application and equipment in its own-brand gadgets in Apple-esque fashion, and also the Google Pixel as well as Pixel XL were the initial phones 'Made by Google' (even though they were made by HTC, yet we won't go there).

We can only think this is exactly how Google will treat its own-brand tools moving forward: the equipment is not simply an automobile to pitch its brand-new software application. Keeping that in mind we 'd anticipate to see the Android O Programmer Sneak peek once again announced ahead of Google I/O on 17 May, and also the final launch prior to any new equipment at the end of August.

However, it's equally likely that Google did things by doing this as a one-off in 2016 to take the focus far from Android Nougat (which had not been a specifically large update) as well as move it on to its brand-new phones.
