Most Android smartphone owners are waiting on the arrival of Android 7.0 Nougat. The rollout is expectedly taking its time to some smartphones overshadowing the coming of the next one known as the Android O.

The final version of Android N was released way back in August 2016. Some have already gotten used to the new Android Nougat update which has so far been doing fine. There are existing problems as expected such as random reboots, battery life, WiFi connectivity, black screen and sound issues. Some even encounter the problems upon installation. There are fixes and that can be found via Gotta Be Mobile.

Problems are nothing new and the same is expected to carry on for Android O. The earliest mention of the next operating system could come this May 17 during the Google I/O conference. Seeing how Android has been known to associate the final name of their OS, the common terminology used right now is “Oreo”.

Take note that Android Oreo is not the final name for the next OS. There are suggestions that it could be also named Orange or even Oatmeal, PC Advisor reported. While that is perhaps a minor problem, it would be best to delve into the special features it will have to offer.

Among the suggested new features for Android O includes improved gestures, easier copying of text from one app and pasting to another and possibly ease in sharing addresses with an easy open interface with Google Maps. More are expected to append that list, ones that could make a big difference.

Once announced, the next concern of Android phone owners is the rollout. Depending on the brand (i.e. Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola, etc.) it may immediately come out or be on queue. Android owners should know the trend by now as the Android O is expected to go through several processes before being released to the public.
