Everything seems to point to Google launching the final version of Android O later this month. Not only because this was the month in which the company officially gave us Android Nougat, but also for all the rumors that have pointed in that direction.
I recall that initially this release was expected to be available this week. As we reported yesterday, this did not materialize. Google will have faced last-minute issues that forced it to postpone making its operating system available.

Therefore, the question remains as to when Google will make the new version of the OS available. This time we have the renowned Evan blass claiming that the final version of Android O could arrive on August 21st.
Although it is a very reliable source, it should be noted that this is not official information. But to be true, we are a week away from seeing Android O finally hit the market.
Of course, the first smartphones to be covered with this new version will be the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Subsequently, a long process of updating by various companies begins, which in some cases may take more than six months before some smartphones are updated.
But what will be the name of this Android O?
This is one of the main curiosities of the technology community regarding this new version of the Google OS. Every year, the American company nicknames its versions alphabetically and with names of sweets or desserts.
Android Oreo is the designation of choice for most of the community
For the year 2017, most bets fall on "Oreo". This is the most consensual name among the technology community, but nothing is guaranteed yet.
With the release of Android O on August 21st, it is highly likely that we will get to know your designation that same day. In fact, it would make no sense if it were otherwise. As for its version, everything points to this being Android 8.0.
For most Android users, little difference will make if Google releases this new flavor next week or next. Unless you are a Pixel or Pixel XL holder, you should only have access to the new Android within months of its official release.
