Android L could be known as Lemon Meringue Pie

Android L to get Lemon Meringue Pie nickname
Lemon Meringue Pie
The upcoming Android version has been officially confirmed already, but its traditional dessert inspired-name is not known yet and Lemon Meringue Pie looks like the safest bet for now.

Google already announced Android "L" which is going to launch as the fifth major iteration of the notorious mobile operating system, but it is not known what the "L" stands for yet. Since Google has been using names of various desserts as nicknames for the major Android releases, it would not be a surprise to see them use the same pattern for Android 5.0.

According to a piece of code spotted by Android Police inside a file which is part of the Android SDK, namely cardview-v7-21.0.0-rc1.aar, current preview builds of the upcoming Android version are referred to as "lmp-preview-release." Even more, the WiFi certification of HTC's upcoming slate which is expected to hit the market as Nexus 9 reveals a firmware version labeled "LMP" as well. 

While Lemon Meringue Pie is a rather safe guess, remains to see if Google decides to choose the same path as they did when naming Android 4.4, internally known as Key Lime Pie for quite a while, but changed at the last minute to KitKat after Google signed a deal with Nestle. Back then, there were many references to "KLP" in official documents and files as well, so we should take everything with a grain of salt for the time being.

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.
