The next version of Android is nearly upon us. This new version of the Android OS, currently known as Android O or Android 8.0, could be released later this month. According to the very reliable Evan Blass of VentureBeat, Google will "most likely" release Android O on August 21st.
In addition, this date will most likely bring us an official name for the next version of Android. The most commonly rumored names have been Android Oreo and Android Oatmeal Cookie. Expect the Pixel handsets to get the first crack at the new OS since they're pure Android smartphones.
Android O will bring a slew of system enhancements and nifty features. These features include: Picture-in-Picture, notification dots, instant apps, enhanced auto-fill, and smart text select. For a more in-depth look at these features, click here.
