Android O To Get Official Name And Release Next Week
Google might release the latest version of the Android operating system dubbed as Android O, next week. The latest Android O will be the eighth generation of the Android operating system and is expected to be an incremental update with performance, feature, and design improvements rather than a major overhaul. Moreover, latest reports suggest that Android O might get its official name in the coming week.
There have been various rumors regarding the official name for Google's next OS release. Oreo, Oatmeal cookie, Octopus or perhaps something else starting with an "O". Android Police's David Ruddock has revealed in a series of tweets that Android O's official name might be unveiled by Google on the same day as the American solar eclipse, which is on August 21, Business Insider reported.
This corroborates well with Google's statement that Android O will launch sometime in Q3 2017. Ruddock also states that Android O will roll out the Google Pixel device on the same day, which is August 21. Last year, Google has officially unveiled Android 7.0 Nougat on August 22, so based on the cycle, the August 21 date seems quite likely, India Today reported.
Google had announced Android O during its annual developer conference, I/O 2017. The latest version of Android has new features like Notification Dots, Picture-in-Picture mode, LDAC support, Autofill and Smart text selection. Google has also improved the security and reduced the booting time in the latest OS. Additionally, the latest update also offers battery enhancement with background execution limits and other changes to vital system behaviors.
To improve battery life, Google is also introducing "Wise Limits" which places restrictions on background apps, particularly those which use location services continuously. Android O basically places specific limits on location updates, background services, and implicit broadcasts.
Android O Might Roll Out To Google Pixel On August 21
