• Android O could be available as early as next week according to Twitter sources.

    The rumour mill continues to turn regarding Android O and when it will hit select devices. The upcoming first appeared as a developer preview back in March this year, followed by second, third and fourth developer previews in respective months.

    Android Police Managing Editor David Ruddock previously said in a Tweet that the update would go live for the Google Pixel in early August, which is a little earlier than the Nougat update hit Nexus handsets. Ruddock posted a similar tweet yesterday suggesting that the launch should be in ‘about a week’, with a possibility of it getting pushed back a little further. This would be quite a surprise given than we’re barely 7 days away and we don’t even know the name of the OS.

    Rumours have suggested that Google could be going for Oatmeal Cookie, while others have said Oreo is a possibility. References to Oatmeal Cookie were found in slides during the Google I/O 2017 conference, so it’s probably the more likely choice. The latter wouldn’t be completely out of the realms of possibility, especially considering the company used Kit Kat as its name for Android 4. Regardless of this, both the upcoming Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 flagship phones are likely to come pre-loaded with the new software.
