Motorola hints at the successor to Android N: Android O

Android logoAndroid N hasn’t even received an official name yet, and there are already hints pointing towards its successor, Android O. In an ad for the Moto G4 Plus, Motorola suggests that the smartphone will get updates for both the Android N and the upcoming Android O.

Android O is the most likely code name for the Android version that will succeed the upcoming Android N, considering that Google has been using the same naming scheme for the Android open source OS since it decided that the third release, the Android 1.5, should be called Cupcake, back in 2009.

Still, it seems a bit too early to speculate on a successor to the Android N, since Google has yet to name the upcoming version. Since then, Google has used the naming scheme on 11 consecutive builds, this including the Android N.

In a marketing campaign for promoting the Motorola Moto G4 Plus, Lenovo announced that the smartphone would come with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 out of the box and the option for users to upgrade to both Android N and Android O, according to Chinese website Anzhuo. It’s one of the first official mentions of Android N’s successor, and there’s actually no information on features and options that you could find in the Android O.

During the Google I/O 2016 event, held in San Francisco, the company announced that users could help name the upcoming Android N on the company’s dedicated website. However, it is said that the logical decision would be to call Android 7.0 Nutella.

Google I/O 2016 also provided some insights on the upcoming Android N, and the company highlighted that the next Android build would focus mainly on performance, security and productivity while the company had already released the Android N Developer Preview as beta.

Since Google has been keen on naming Android builds after famous desserts, Android O will most likely follow the same guidelines. Android N is expected to be released later this year, which means that we could be hearing more about its predecessor, Android O, in the year to come.
