Android N v2

Maybe its a sign, maybe its a hint or maybe its a troll but for those of you that recall back to the Android M Developer Preview the “demo mode” had an interesting little quirk to it in that the time switched to 6:00 when it was turned on. Later it was in fact confirmed that Android M which is now known as Marshmallow was in fact Version 6.0

With the latest update of the Android N Developer preview many of us have started adventuring through the OS and various features additions and enhancements. Out of curiosity I hit the demo mode which has reappeared in the N preview and found that the time changes to 7:00 when it’s turned on.

It may be nothing, it may be a hint or it may be a troll from Google but it certainly caught my attention.

How do you think Google will progress towards confirming the version number of Android N?

given that google felt the relatively minor update from lollipop to marshmallow warranted a number increment, this wouldn’t surprise me. but then idk what factors go into this decision.
