Android N to be called Android Nougat

After heavy speculation and strong campaigning for the Indian-flavoured Neyyappam, Google has finally revealed the name of the next Android version.


Google has officially announced that the Android N version would be called Android Nougat, which was one of the top contenders, alongside Nutela and others, when Google decided to crowdsource the name for Android N. However, the version number of Android Nougat is not yet reveal. It could either be released as version 6.1 or bumped up to version 7.0.

Given the major changes in the system, we are expecting Android Nougat to be declared as version 7.0, however there is still a slight chance that Google may instead use version 6.1. With the release of the new version just a few months away, we should find out very soon. In the meanwhile, the Neyyappam supporters should begin campaigning for Android O.
