Android O "most likely" to be released on August 21

Reports about the upcoming release of the Android O are a bit confusing. Although Google is expected to launch the new version of the mobile platform this month, we don't know when exactly the search giant will push the release button.

According to a report coming from AndroidPolice's David Ruddock, Google might have pushed the release of Android O for Pixel beyond the August 21 date. He also claims that he's got unverified information that Google plans to give the Android O its market name on the day of the solar eclipse, August 21.

A more recent piece of information coming from Evan Blass claims Android O release is scheduled for the week of August 21. Moreover, the new version of Android will “most likely” be launched on August 21, the same rumor claims.

Well, it probably doesn't really matter when exactly Android O gets released as long as it comes this month. Since we're more than a week away from its launch, there's a high chance that we'll get more information on the matter, so stay tuned.

Some of the Nexus, Pixel phones & tablet have been easily able to opt into the beta versions for a while now. The current version doesn't have any issues that effect my day to day use.
