Android 7.0 Nougat statue unveiled by Google

Android 7.0 Nougat statue unveiled by Google
Not long after confirming that the final, official name of the newest iteration of Android is Nougat, Google unveiled an Android Nougat statue. Just like it happened with all previous Android statues, the Android Nougat monument was placed on the lawn in front of Google's HQ (Googleplex) in Mountain View, California. After the new statue was unveiled, it looks like everyone there received some sweet nougat treats.

Google doesn't explain why it choose Nougat over all other suggested names (Nutella was widely expected to be used), but we guess that this doesn't really matter. Android Nougat sounds pretty cool anyway. By the way, Google confirmed that Android Nougat is version 7.0, not 6.1, as this is a major release that deserves a brand new number.  

There's still no word on exactly when Android 7.0 Nougat will be launched, despite the fact that a public Android N Developer Preview has been around since March. In any case, Android Nougat will likely be ready for roll-out sometimes in the coming months. Until then, you can check out our Android N Developer Preview overview (and keep in mind that the final version of the OS will certainly bring changes and enhancements, though they may not be important ones).
