Google has unveiled Android 8.0 and it’s Oreo – named they say after the most popular cookie in the world. That’s possibly debatable, but the Oreo statue is quite possibly one of the coolest we’ve seen so far.
The statue is a super hero style, created as usual by Giovanni Calabrese of Themendous in New York who has created all the Android statues to date. Themendous shared pictures of the statue on their Twitter account before the unveiling.
That statue is appearing on the Google campus right now, as seen in this tweet from partner technology manager Tako Hisada
