Android N finally gets an official name

Although many were expecting for Nutella or Nectar, the next major Android release is dubbed Nougat as its statue has been already unveiled outside Google's HQ.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
