Google has finally revealed the nickname for the upcoming version of its mobile operating system. Android N will now be Android Nougat.That moment when… #AndroidNougat 🤗 #AndroidNRevealhttp://pic.twitter.com/dzWYeiW0gk— Android (@Android) June 30, 2016 And just like past Android name reveals, there’s a statue to go along with it.The time has arrived! #AndroidNRevealhttp://pic.twitter.com/vtbSOjQvWh— Android (@Android) June 30, 2016 Personally, I was hoping for either Neapolitan or Google could have done another corporate partnership for the name, just like the did with Android 4.4 KitKat.
