Android O is expected to be be released on August 21

Moreover, the new version of Android will "most likely" be launched on August 21, the same rumor claims. While the update is delayed, there is no info regarding this from Google.

In the previous year, Google had released the Android 7.0 Nougat OS on August 22 to a couple of Nexus devices before making it available on the original Google Pixel phones.

So if you have the Google Pixel smartphones, then we suggest you stay on a lookout for the same as they could make it official anytime.

Android O will be available to the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, and Google Pixel C. Once it's released, other Android device makers will take the update and customize it with their own special features and overlays before releasing it to their own devices. Android Police's David Ruddock fired off a bunch of tweets on Thursday claiming that Google will likely announce the operating system's official name on August 21, the day of the solar eclipse. He also claims to already know the name of Android O, but said that he didn't want "to ruin the surprise". There was also no clue or hint regarding the correlation between the upcoming solar eclipse and the name of Android O. DP5 is now available within the Android Things Console, but the DP5 update will not be pushed automatically to devices without your intervention. Android's vice president of engineering, Dave Burke in a blog post added that the developer preview 4 for Android O will be the last preview version before the release of the final, stable version of Android O for consumers.

Google's next big release - Android O beta - has entered Developer Preview 2. Previously it was speculated that Android O could finally be called Android Oreo or Android Oatmeal Cookie, though it looks like we'll have to wait a little longer to find out its official name.
