Android N statue

When Google officially announced Android N at its annual Google I/O developers conference in May, they ran a contest asking fans to submit their suggestions for the official name of the next major revision to the world’s most-used mobile operating system. Yesterday, Google announced they’ve chosen “Nougat” as the official code-name of Android 7.0.

Here’s Google’s ritual unwrapping of a brand new Android Nougat statue.

Android Nougat focuses on performance, productivity and security, allowing apps to and run faster and take up less storage than before.

Some of the end-user facing enhancements include Multi-Window support for smartphones, a Quick Reploy-like functionality for notifications, faster gaming via Vulkan, a low-level hardware-accelerated graphics framework akin to Apple’s Metal, a Daydream virtual-reality platform and more.

How do you like Android’s new code-name?

    Noodles would have made a better cut.

    • Itzkhaoz

      They’re named after desserts

    What’s with the pregnant women in 0:39?

    • Kubaton

      Unless I’m missing something, it appears they’re having their picture taken with the statue.

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        I mean, seriously a pregnant woman on the unveiling of Android N!!!

      • Noohar

        So what?!

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        It’s too awkward

      • :D

        Yeah, pregnant women are so awkward, right?

        What? Dear God, this is my hell. What is it so awkward about pregnant women?

      • ck125

        It’s only too awkward if you are like 12 years old and get weirded out by a essential life process. Come on now…

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        First of all, I’m 15; secondly I’ve never seen pregnant women posing in front of Androids in Googleplex, especially at an unveiling…

      • ck125

        It’s life. People get pregnant. Just because it’s an unveiling doesn’t mean workers aren’t pregnant. It’s not a huge deal. Pregnant women aren’t awkward, don’t get all hot and bothered by it.

      • You’re 15, so chances are you haven’t seen most of anything life has to offer kid.
        Gotta be one of the strangest comments I’ve ever seen posted on a blog site though. So you’ve shown this 34 year old something he’s never seen before.
        I’m more than double your age, so based on your logic I must have seen everything though by now, right?

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        One bloody comment and the world has everything to say…

    • Gregg

      Your question is… awkward.

      • Very freakin’ awkward! Apparently 15 year olds, that have traveled the world, haven’t seen pregnant women before…. LMAO

      • Agneev Mukherjee

        Keep laughin’ your ass off…

  • Squillace

    Why would I say hello to an Android system if I’m an Apple user and this is an Apple themed blog?

    Really, you guys are loosing quality soooo fast. :-/

    • Juschan

      cause some people mght be more eyesopened than you and like to get notified about big announcements on planet android ..

    • AMB_07

      Don’t like it? Don’t click on it.

      • Leopoldo Pereira

        Say this to fandroids when they click on an iOS article.

      • AMB_07

        Your comment is entirely irrelevant, I don’t care about fandroids.

      • Leopoldo Pereira

        Irrelevant or not, it’s fact. I don’t care about fanboys either. It’s just that they’re annoying.

      • AMB_07

        The only fact about your statement is that fanboys are indeed annoying, on both sides.

        iSheep are just as polluting as fandroids on this and every website.

    • Because it pays to stay in the loop re: what your fierce competitor is doing
