Here's More Evidence That Android 8.0 Will Be Called Android Oreo

Google launches a new version of Android every year and as tradition has had it since the launch of Android 1.5 Cupcake in 2009, every new version of Android is named after a sweet food item or a dessert. Google had launched Android 7.0 Nougat in August last year and since the Google I/O is around the corner, speculations are rife as to what Android 8.0 will be named after.

Apart from naming Android versions after desserts and sweet foods, Google also follows the alphabetical order for naming Android every year. After Cupcake, we thus had Donut, Eclairs, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jellybean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and most recently Nougat. Android 8.0 will hence begin with the alphabet 'O' and it is believed that Android 8.0 will be called Android Oreo.

Google's SVP of Android and ChromeOS Hiroshi Lockheimer had recently shared a picture of a cake covered with Oreo cookies. This only ascertained that Android 8.0 will be Oreo. Now some new evidence has emerged which further cements our faith in the looming rumors.

Google has partnered with Mondelez, the company that owns Oreo, to release a silly game named 'Oreo Space Dunk'. The game asks users to scan their Oreo cookie. Once the scanning is complete, the Oreo cook is thrown into a spin across virtual spin only to land in a glass of milk on the other side of the world.

It thus appears that Android 8.0 will be Android Oreo, but we had also believed that Android N will be Android Nutella, which turned out to be Nougat in the end. We expect to know more about 2017's Android version at Google I/O scheduled to be held at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA, May 17 onwards.
