Google Confirms Android 8.0 As Oreo, AOSP Sources To Be Released Today



After various rumors and speculations, Android 8.0 has been confirmed as Oreo. Google made the name official in a nine-minute presentation, which was also live streamed. The presentation involved unveiling of the Oreo statue which showcases the caped-Android mascot attempting to take off towards the sun.



The new version of Android has been released on the special occasion of Total Eclipse in the United States. This is the first time since 1918 that a solar eclipse has taken place over the entire United States. The next time this will happen would be in 2056.

Google has also stated that it will be pushing out the Android Oreo source code to AOSP today. Meanwhile the Oreo update for the eligible Nexus, Pixel and Android One devices will begin "soon." The release of the AOSP source code means that you may well be able to get your hands on an Oreo-based custom ROM sooner than the official Oreo update from Google.

Here's what LineageOS had to say about Oreo's release.
