Google reportedly delays Android O by few more days

This piece of news might disappoint a lot of Pixel and Pixel XL users, but at least there's one silver lining.

Will it be Oreo, orange creamsicle, oatmeal cookie, or something else that starts with the letter "O"?

He then said a source with unverifiable information told him Android O's name will be announced on the day of the solar eclipse, while teasing Google's plans for a spectacle to celebrate the moment.

Android users are often left wanting more when it comes to their phone's camera. It's not hard to imagine Google doing a cheesy tie-in with the biggest astronomical event of the year. There was also no clue or hint regarding the correlation between the upcoming solar eclipse and the name of Android O. Android O basically places specific limits in location updates, background services and implicit broadcasts.

Various reports indicated that this version also brings Selfie Flash feature but that feature debuted with the previous version of Google Camera (v 4.3). It could be days or even weeks.

Note that Google recently launched the Android Things Console, which enables support for over-the-air updates to Android Things devices.

As for other users, it's likely that the final build of Android O might be made more widely available isome time in October or November.

There is a possibility that the Android O may still contain some bugs and the company is trying to fix them before releasing a stable version for the Google Pixel smartphones.

Of course unless you have a Pixel or Nexus phone you're unlikely to see Android O for a good while yet - get in touch with your Android phone manufacturer to see if and when you can expect to see the latest version of the mobile OS on your own handset.
