[Official] Android O Coming On August 21 After The Solar Eclipse, Name Likely Oreo

 

It's official! Google's upcoming Android OS update, which is Android O will be announced officially on August 21 with name of it , the same day as the big total solar eclipse!




Today, Google shared a new webpage which is over at the Android site with a countdown to the unveiling, which will go down at 2:40PM Eastern (11:40AM Pacific). For those who haven’t been following the eclipse saga and are confused by the timing, the solar eclipse expected to end at around 11:37AM, so 3 minutes later, we’ll get Android O.

Also, here is this small hint which most likely confirms that Android O will be named Oreo. But keep in mind, we are not sure as Google tends to troll at the end.

The video above was posted to Google+ and the person who uploaded it named the video file “GoogleOreo_Teaser_0817_noDroids%2B%25281%2529.mp4.” See anything in there? Yeah, it says “GoogleOreo_Teaser” as plain as day. 


Is that a confirmation that Android O is Oreo? Well, no. Google likes messing with us, but they did immediately delete that G+ post (it was here) after that bit was spotted and replaced it with another post and new video titled “OctopusTeaser.mp4.” You tell me – Oreo or nah?

The special Android eclipse page will feature live video streams from NASA and also the reveal by Google in NYC. You can catch all of that action at this link on August 21.

Let's see what Google brings to us.
