Android O Release Delayed? Official Name to Be Declared on August 21


And it's not clear why Google would make a big deal about Android O, beyond installing a new Android statue as is customary every year.

Android Police's managing editor David Ruddock also claims that Android O as well as its name will be released on August 21.

With Intel discontinuing the Edison and Joule hardware designs, Google is embracing NXPs hardware to plump out its collection of hardware that can support Android Things. However, there is no information available on why Google may have delayed the release of Android O.

As usual there are bound to be a number of bugs included in this preview, if you find any, report them, or request features if you find there's something you want but still isn't included.

The LG V20 from a year ago was the first non-Google phone to arrive with Android Nougat preinstalled. Android O comes with a multitude of back-end improvements as well such as better battery management algorithms, app optimisations, audio enhancements like improved Bluetooth audio and so on.

Google's Android O beta was rolled out for users after Google's I/O conference. The new update brings some small changes that give the users different choices while going about doing their stuff.

Google has launched the latest version of its Camera app on Android, Google Camera. Recently, some early adopters of the new OS versions potted an easter egg, which shows an Octopus.
