Hiroshi Lockheimer Hints At Android N Name

Chances are by now, that you have heard that the latest version of Android N is now available to download. This is not the final version of course, but instead is the first developer preview which allows those interested to get a real first look at what can be expected from N going forward. Since then more details have been coming through on Android N including a release schedule which details that over the next few months a total of five previews will be released before the final release comes though sometime in the summer.

Of course, while there is a ton of Android N release news coming through, one specific aspect of Android N continues to remain unknown. This is the name. After all, following in tradition, Android N is just what this version of the operating system is going by until Google decides to announce what the name official will be. However, that does that not mean Google will not be teasing everyone a little in the meantime.

A post was sent out by Google's VP of Engineering at Android, Hiroshi Lockheimer, a little earlier today which further looked to expand on the developer preview release of Android N. What was interesting though, is the line Lockheimer used to close out the post. The line reads as follows, "So, the burning question that's on everyone's mind: what will the N release be named? We're nut telling' you yet." Now, of course the instant reaction to this will be that this is Google's way of suggesting the name of Android N on release will be 'Nutella', and it could be. However, Google is known for often teasing this aspect of an Android OS release and therefore, nothing too solid can be taken based on the quote. In fact, as was the case with an I/O teasing of Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) that occurred last year, some could take today's hint as proof that it will not actually be Nutella or that it could be some other form of nut-based dessert. Either way, it is worth keeping in mind that the actual title of the post is one which Lockheimer makes it clear - that they have not officially settled on a name yet.
