Alleged Android N screenshot reveals hamburger menu in the settings app

most of you answered Nougat (perhaps because Nutella wasn't an option, of course).
Well, we might learn the final name very soon, as Android N should be already deep into the making, if Google wants to announce and preview it at its usual I/O late spring/early summer event, which this year is scheduled for May 18-20.
it might do away with the app drawer, like on the new LG or Samsung overlays, or in most Chinese brands. Today, however, the existence of a working Android N version has been confirmed by none other than one Artem Russakovkii, a leakster of all things Google and Android.So far, we haven't heard much about any potential new features of Android N, save for the fact that
Not only that, but the posting on Google's developers blog, which shows the presence of a hamburger menu instead of a back arrow in the Settings app, is also seemingly confirmed to be from Android N by Artem. The back arrow at that side was totally redundant anyway, given that we have virtual or physical navigation buttons, so, unless you are left-handed and with a big-screen handset, a back arrow in the hardest to reach corner of the screen made no sense, and Google might have taken notice in Android N.
Android N will be out before Samsung stops acting the bollox and releases a stable Marshmallow for my Note 5..

It's kinda strange that all of EU got S6/edge updated to marshmallow and Note 5 is still running lollipop.

Because International version of the Note and S are easier to update because they don't have carrier bloat. It's not a Samsung issue, it's a carrier issue. If Samsung sint push updates via the carrier and made carriers make their apps available in the app store like a very one else, updates would be less of a problem. If the iPhone had carrier bloat, it would be the same problem. If Google forced Android OEMS to do the following: No custom carrier bootloaders, apps from carriers must be made available from the carrier via the Play Store, or direct download from the carrier and not baked into the firmware, then this wouldn't be an issue for Samsung to upgrade a phone faster.

The bigger news is that Nexus 5 is getting a third straight major update. Go Google! Time to show that we can do updates for longer than iOS, AND run them better than the laggy mess iOS 8 was on older devices.

This doesn't confirm that, they might be testing it. It will be great if it gets it though.

it's 2013 device, even 2012's iPhone 5 runs fast on iOS 9 - third major update. Nexus 5 has only received 1 major update, if it won't get Android N, then RIP Google.

so... If I were to be the one who develope this, the first item in the list in the ham menu would be used to place shortcuts to the most used option, and you can add any other settings if you wish and the other items are all other settings as you normally see in any android devices p.s: i hope my english is good enough for you to understand this
