Android 6 Marshmallow isn’t even on five percent of our tools yet, yet we’re already thinking regarding the next whole lot of software application from Google. Android 7 is anticipated before the end of the year and also we’re expecting an announcement at Google I/O in May.

As you possibly understand, Google has actually called its Android versions after pleasant deals with. Far we have actually seen Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop as well as Marshmallow. That obtained us below at techradar reasoning – exactly what will certainly Android 7 be called?

It’s time for Android N so it’s going to need to be a reward starting keeping that letter, undoubtedly. But exactly what if Google made a decision to take a different tact and drop the sweet idea?

Maybe something savoury, and even a drink this time around? We talked among ourselves to see if we can help Google choose as well as let it obtain on with naming the various other companies in the alphabet.

Android Nutella

James Peckham, Phones as well as Tablets Writer

Google managed to grab the KitKat name from Nestle for Android 4.4, so there’s no factor it won’t be able to get approval to utilize the Italian chocolate spread’s name this time.

Some may see Nutella as a little ‘available’ as compared to all the typical pleasant things we’ve seen Android opt for until now – however let’s hope Google go for something various. And also after Lollipop and Marshmallow it’s time to see another official brand name for Android 7.

Android Nougat

Desire Athow, techradar Pro Editor

Nougat is not a brand as well as is as malleable as you want it to be, which is best for Google. It seems classy also, which is always a good thing when you encounter the poshest of smart device brands about, Apple.

Android Nandos

Patrick Goss, Global Editor-in-Chief

A saucy adjustment of instructions? I reckon Google’s most definitely considered this yet it’ll most likely back down – despite it being such a saucy idea. And also, when it tips into the savoury globe it makes the whole Android O issue a lot easier to solve.

Android Nesquik

Gareth Beavis, Phones and also Tablets Editor

OK, this is even more of a milkshake than anything else, yet it’s such a dazzling beverage that I ‘d possibly get the brand-new Nexus merely so I might relive my youth whenever I check the software application variation. Which we all do, every day, right? RIGHT?

Android Noisette

Salwa Azar, Social Engagement Editor

A little bit stylish, this is nutty without being a trademark name and also adheres to an instead sweet-toothed fad. This make good sense if it includes some bonkers features.

Android Nacho

Marc Chacksfield, Content Group Lead

This needs to happen, so that everytime I turn on my Android phone I get to sing ‘Nacho, nacho male, I intend to be a nacho guy’ while doing my ideal perception of Homer Simpson.

Android Nugget

John McCann, Phones and also Tablets Deputy Editor

A deep fried helping of grease covered Android? Yes please, I’ll take a 20 box. The lubrication from the deep fryer oils will definitely make this the slickest Android upgrade to this day, as well as it’s bound to be packed with delicious new surprises. We may also get an unique variety of dipping sources.

It’ll congest the reduced powered, much less athletic phones on the market – but also for those who are fighting fit on top of their game, Nugget promises to be a delicious treat.

Android Now and Later

Cameron Faulkner, Assistant Editor

Let’s face it, Google’s going to compliment Nutella. It’s chocolate spread, for weeping out loud. But because it’s unoriginal to nominate the very same dessert twice, I’m choosing literally the only other sweet that I could consider that begins with “N”.

Now and Later isn’t too various in texture from something like Laffy Taffy or Salt Water Taffy, yet is lip-puckingly pleasant. In the context of exactly how the sweet could possibly be expressive of brand-new Android N features, Google Now is obviously at top-of-mind. The “Later” little the treat’s name could possibly riff off of feasible renovations to the Doze feature introduced in Marshmallow, and exactly how your Android phone will certainly last much longer.

Android Nerds

Kevin Lee, Affiliate Editor, Laptops

Google has already purchased into one trademark name of candy with KitKat and it can do the exact same with Android N. Nerds isn’t simply a joke on hardcore Android individuals, it’s also a classic Willy Wonka candy business classic.

It additionally aids that Geeks typically can be found in a pack with 2 flavors, showing the search firm’s current objective to develop Android N as a new much better tablet computer OS along with the following software application system for mobile phones. And also since these rocky little candies already handle the anthropomorphic form of little animals, Google might conveniently change these armless, huge nose animals with its traditional Android mascot.

Android Nature Valley

Hugh Langley, Associate Editor

No wonder there’s a diabetes mellitus epidemic when also our smartphones are a consistent tip of all the tasty treats around. Now we’re halfway via the alphabet, it’s time for Google to take place a health and wellness kick with some lovely, beautiful granola many thanks to the good individuals of Nature Valley.

Apple Crisp, Peanut, Fruit as well as Nut Path Mix – that claimed granola had to be monotonous? I’m going to quit now considering that I’m generally creating free advert for Nature Valley.

Android Nespresso

Kane Fulton, Computing Editor

Google’s partnership with Nestlé on Android 4.4 KitKat revealed that the search giant isn’t afraid of teaming up with global nutrition companies, so it’s likely that Android Nespresso is on the cards.

Rumour has it that the forthcoming version of Android ships with George Clooney’s smug face established as an unmovable wallpaper, while the sole ringtone hears him wail “What else? Idiot” up until you’re so furious that you shatter your mobile phone right into the nearest wall.

Android ‘Nana


Matt Hanson, How To Editor

Google just began calling launches of Android after sweet treats with its third significant launch – Android 1.5 Cupcake.
