Facebook, Google and Twitter have circulated some of the most outrageous fake news

A newly leaked image suggests that the upcoming Android 8 O will be named as Oreo. This name has been one of the rumored names for Android O for quite a while now but leading up to the reveal of the next version of Android which takes place today, there have been a number of leaks and other rumors that claims that Oreo has been the choice that Google settled on. 

The leaked image is coming from the reliable leaker Evan Blass, who is quite well-known for his leaks. However, the image doesn't look like Google's official image for the next version of Android, but the point is that the Oreo is present and not the image as a whole that hints as this being the official name, Android Authority reported.

The leaked image and suggested name for Android O also follows a previous leak from Evan Blass that surfaced back on Friday which showed the picture of an Oreo. In that image, it looked like the moon covering up the sun during an eclipse, which would be significant as Google already confirmed it would be announcing Android 8.0 today during the solar eclipse, which is scheduled happen in the morning for those on the west coast, according to the Phone Arena.

The reader should note that this leak and all previous leaks don't mean that Android Oreo is officially the confirmed name for the next version of Android. However, Oreo has certainly been the most talked about and the most hinted at that for some will be more than enough of a confirmation even if it isn't official. Another potential name for the next version of Android has been the oatmeal cookie that has leaked in some capacity as well.

Google is going to officially announce the Android O today at an event to take place in New York City at 2:40 PM ET. The event is said to be live streamed, which can be watched here
