Despite heavy teasing of Nutella as the name for the upcoming version of Android N by Hiroshi Lockheimer, head of Android, Chrome and Chromecast at Google. Google has today revealed that Android N will be Android Nougat going forward.
The announcement has been followed up with the traditional reveal of the Android statue with the desert at the Googleplex in Mountain View. The statue is, as usual, created by the team at Themendous who created the other statues in the Android dessert garden at Google HQ.

Android Nougat, expected to be version 7.0 of the Android OS, will be arriving later this year with whats rumoured to be two Nexus devices, codenamed Marlin and Sailfish.

So. It’s Android Nougat. What do you think? Love it? Hate it? Ambivalent?
