Google to unveil official name for Android N soon
The public brainstorming of Android N names includes "Nuts", "Noodles", and "Norwegian Smoked Salmon".

"Thanks for your submissions. We’ll reveal the new name in a few weeks!"

The Google campaign to ask readers for suggestions on the official name of the next major Android update has now ended. An official decision on the name will be made by the end of July if not sooner.

As expected, the search giant was flooded with proposals. Some of the best or more clever submissions have been put together in the form of sticky notes for all to see. Google had released a short checklist of rules for users to follow including:

  • Starting with the letter N
  • Is sweet
  • Is palatable
  • Can be pronounced easily
  • Leaves a good taste in the mouth
  • Translates well to different font types

Android 6.0 Marshmallow was made publicly available on October 2015, so it is possible that Google will announce the official name for Android N alongside a potentially new or refreshed family of Nexus devices for 2016. Both Huawei and HTC have been rumored to be working on multiple successors to the current Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
