Breaking News : Google's Android N is referred to as 'New York Cheesecake' internally
#1

While everyone is happy that Google rolled out the Developer Preview of Android N much earlier than expected, there is indeed one tiny bit that was not revealed, until now. Yes, we are talking about the version name for Android N and it now seems that Google’s team is referring it to as ‘New York Cheesecake’ internally.

Android Police reported the new name for the current beta that is tagged as Android N, when it spotted the initials ‘nyc’ in the AOSP repository. But again as with other codenames in the past the final names were completely different, so ‘Nankhatai’ does stand a chance (provided plenty have voted for it).

In the past, KitKat was tagged as Key Lime Pie (klp) and the same goes for Lollipop (Lemon Meringue Pie) and the current Marshmallow (Macadamia Nut Cookie). So for now, New York Cheesecake only seems like an option as Google still has an online poll running asking users to decide what the next version of Android will be called. Users can also vote using the Google Opinion Rewards app that is available in some countries on the Play Store.

Google’s tradition of naming its major Android software updates with desserts has been in existence since the very beginning so it was no biggie that the next version had to be another dessert. Also it was obvious that next version had to begin with the alphabet “N” because of the naming tradition that follows the alphabetical order with every major release.

Fans could also see an Indian sweet representing the next version of Android. As Google CEO, Sundhar Pichai during his visit to India (at at Delhi University) pointed out, that if enough vote, there could be an Android version being represented by the name of an Indian sweet. The final release happens in summer so for now all fans can do is vote and wait.
