Android 7.0 is Finally Codenamed Android Nougat, Release Scheduled for this Fall

Despite Nutella clearly having won the popular vote, Google has finally chosen a different name most likely for trademark reasons, and Android 7.0 will be called Android “Nougat“.

Android_NougatSince Google had already released several Android N previews, we’ve already known the main changes for some times including better virtual reality support, multi-window support, improved security, faster performance thanks to Vulkan API and new JIT compiler, and so on.

Smartphone and tablet manufacturers will release hardware and firmware updates based on Android 7.0 starting this fall, and some TV boxes will likely start to run Android Nougat a little later, probably in 2017 and beyond.
