The world got its first glimpse at the future of Android, early last month, with the release of the Android N Preview to developers and enthusiasts. Since it is still a long way before the time of the year when we get to know the specifics of Google’s latest version of its mobile operating system, there’s been unending speculation that Android N won’t be a point release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. That it will be version 7.0 since it includes several significant features like multi-window, a revamped notifications and Quick Settings panel and better Doze mode.

A recent listing by Samsung of the changelog of version 1.3.1 of its Multi-window SDK further fuels this speculation since it refers to Android N as Android 7.0.

While it is highly likely that Android N is indeed Android 7.0, it is still anyone’s guess what the final codename of the operating system will be. Google has enlisted the help of some of its over 1 billion users in picking the name for Android N. Popular suggestions have included Nutella, the brand name of a popular hazelnut cocoa spread. In mid-March, word went around that Google is using the codename New York Cheesecake internally to refer to Android N.
