More Evidence that Android “L” is Lemon Meringue Pie

August 23, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Ever since Google announced Android L at Google I/O earlier this year, we’ve been wondering what the dessert codename would be for this device, and now we have a bit more evidence that it’ll be Lemon Meringue Pie. This is all thanks to the folks over at Android Police, who did a little research and got a few tips from readers and were able to put it all together. As you’ll see in a code snippet below, it references the “lmp-preview”, which leads us to believe they mean Lemon Meringue Pie. This shows up in a extract of the SDK for Android L developer previews available for the Nexus 5 and 7.

Also an HTC tablet passed through WiFi certification a couple of days ago, which in the wifi certification it points to the firmware of LMP as well, which also leads us to believe that it will be Lemon Meringue Pie. So the Volantis has passed through WiFi certification which means we’re one step closer to having the Nexus 8 or 9 being official.

We knew that last year, Android 4.4’s codename was KLP, for Key Lime Pie, and well that turned out to be KitKat. So we could still see Google go ahead and work with another candy maker for Android L, but currently, it appears the codename is LMP. We’ve still got a few months before Google announces Android L and rolls it out to the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices out there. So we’ll likely see plenty more speculation over the next few weeks.

How many of you are excited about Android L as we are? We’re definitely excited to see that new design language, material design in full action. And we’ve even seen it in a few apps already. Let us know in the comments down below, what your thoughts are.
