Android N version number seemingly revealed by Samsung

Android N version number seemingly revealed by Samsung
Last month, when Google unveiled Android N (more exactly, a Developer Preview of it), it didn't say what version number the new iteration of the OS would get. However, looking at the major Android versions launched in 2014 and 2015 (5.0 Lollipop and 6.0 Marshmallow, respectively), one would assume that Android N would be version 7.0. According to Samsung, this might indeed be the case.

Samsung recently released a new SDK (software development kit) for its MultiWindow feature - found on many Galaxy devices - mentioning that this comes with "Android N (7.0) compatibility." Since Samsung is one of Google's most important partners, it probably knows more about Android N than us, so we're inclined to believe that 7.0 is Android N's correct version number.  

Of course, we can't say that the version number of Android N is of great importance. What matters more is the confectionery-themed name that this iteration of Android will have - because that's what's going to show up more prominently in marketing materials. Google has plenty of names to choose from, including Nougat, Nutella, Nanaimo bar, Nut roll, Neapolitan ice cream, and so on. Until we hear more about this, make sure to check out our Android N Developer Preview Review.
