Android N is the 12th version of Android which is not available right now but the wait for its name has been excruciating. There is an Android N Developer preview available for Nexus devices but even that didn’t give us the real name. Since Google CEO, Sundar Pichai hinted it to be an Indian name, people have been losing their minds to guess the official name of Android N. However, it turns out it isn’t an Indian dessert afterall.
So, what is the official name of Android N name?
It is officially named Nougat. The Android N statue is already put in the Google’s campus in Mountain View.
What is Nougat?
Nougat, which some people will announce wrong for the first couple of months is a family of confections made with sugar or honey, roasted nuts (almonds, walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts, and macadamia nuts are common), whipped egg whites, and sometimes chopped candied fruit.
It is common to find in US and other countries. But Indians may find it rarely at local shops.
Android N will soon be coming to HTC’s Nexus as Nexus devices are the first platform to reveal new versions of Android. It is expected to be available to the public in the fall of 2016.
Here is the twitter post that confirmed the official name of Android N (probably ver 7.0):
