Each new version of Android gets a name — in alphabetical order and necessarily connected with some sweetness.
It was assumed that 8.0 Android will be named Oreo (after the cookie), but in the source code of this version of the operating system had discovered another name — oc-dev. It can be assumed that this reduction from Oatmeal Cookie (oatmeal raisin cookies).
Oatmeal Cookie associated with Android 8.0 for the first time. At its I/O conference, which took place in may, the developers noticed that the slides and code samples contain the mention of this dish.
Even if now Android 8.0 inside Google is called the Oatmeal Cookie, there is no absolute guarantee that the name will become official. So was the case with Android 4.4 its internal code name was Key-Lime Pie, but he was released as Android KitKat.
Android 8.0 will be released in the third quarter of 2017. The first smartphones with this version of Android, likely to become a new model of the Google Pixel and LG V30. The first test version of Android O for developers was released in March.
