IT’S NOW OFFICIAL – ANDROID ‘O’ is called Oreo!
The anticipated announcement was made shortly after the solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21. Android Oreo will be made available through the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).
Google Pixel, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P devices will be the first to receive the Android Oreo update, followed by the Pixel C and the Nexus Player.
Google officially partnered with Mondelēz to bring the fun alongside its new variant of the said operating system.
This is only the second time in history Google is partnering up with a popular snack company to market its new mobile operating system. Previously, Google partnered up with Nestlé to brand Android 4.4 as KitKat.
Though Google reportedly didn’t pay Nestlé any money for the branding before — the company was still able to use the KitKat brand for Android 4.4. The said partnership was to do something “fun and unexpected” according to John Lagerling, director of Android global partnerships.
It was basically a win-win for both companies. Google got to use a recognizable snack as the nickname of its new version of Android and Nestlé got free advertising – this time, Mondelēz.
