Although a few other names surfaced in the Android 8.0-related rumors we heard so far, it seems like the next major iteration of Google's mobile operating system will be named Oreo after all.

One of the recent "misdirection attempts" regarding the name of the Android version that is supposed to launch in less than three hours comes from Cliff Wade, who unveiled that we should expect to get Android 8.0 Orellete. However, Evan Blass thinks otherwise.

According to VentureBeat's editor and well-known leakster, "the rest of us will be eating Oreos." Yesterday, he also posted an image that shows one Android robot based on the popular Oreo cookie. The text that comes with the image leaves no room for misunderstandings - "It's a bird. It's a plane. No, it's an iterative mobile platform version upgrade!"

The name has not been confirmed by Google yet, but it should be official by the end of the day. Leaving Oreo (or Orellete, although Oreo is better from any point of view) aside, an interesting message by Andrey Kaplan that surfaced on Twitter this weekend reveals the names of the next major Android variants, starting with Popsicle and Quindim, passing by Skittles and Tiramisu, then closing with Waffle and Xanthan gum.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
