Android 8.0 is Android Oatmeal Cookie, Not Oreo
Google’s Android 8.0 was expected to introduce as Android Oreo. But now a leaked information has hinted that it would be launching as Android Oatmeal Cookie.
The Android 8.0 source code and commit logs contains some references to “oc-dev.” It is now being speculated that “oc” may probably stand for “Oatmeal Cookie.” This is not just one evidence that claims that Android 8.0 would be called Oatmeal Cookie. It is said that there was references of Oatmeal Cookie at the Google I/O 2017 event that was held in May this year.
Here are the references of Oatmeal Cookie in Google I/O slide-
Looks like at least internally Android O is “Oatmeal Cookie.” Noticed this in an I/O slide. pic.twitter.com/9AZD0Zdc8l

Oatmeal Cookie appears at I/O as (presumably) the internal codename for O, so I’m still hopeful for a release name of Android Oreo 🙂 pic.twitter.com/LRHihJvtNs

The first developer preview of Android 8.0 was released in March. In May came its second developer preview. Earlier this month, the third Android 8.0 developer preview was released. Google is expected to release the last developer preview soon and in the third quarter of this year, Google will be releasing the final version of Android 8.0 At that time, its actual moniker will be announced.
The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones will come preinstalled with Android O. Also, the Android O be also brought first to last year’s Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. And also speculations have it that the LG V30 that is rumored to get announced on Aug. 31 would be the first non-Google phone to arrive preinstalled with it.
