The next major iteration of Google's mobile operating system will soon be officially unveiled. Until then, Google has decided to reveal the name chosen for Android N and - unfortunately for Nutella fans - this name is Nougat.

Back in mid-March, Google has come up with the idea to allow its users to name Android N. The website they launched back then stopped accepting name ideas three months later. Next to everyone's favorite Nutella, the list of suggestions and rumors also includes Nori, Nachos, Nectar/Nectarine, Nut Brittle, Noghl/Nuql (sugar-coated almonds), Nutmeg, and so on.

The worst part of the story is that Google has not announced the version number of Android Nougat yet. The team's Tweet only reads "Introducing #AndroidNougat. Thank you, world, for all your sweet name ideas! #AndroidNReveal," so the number behind Android Nougat remains a mistery for now. Most sources expect it to be 7.0, but Nougat was not a favorite, either, so remains to see what future holds.

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.
