Android O launch to coincide with total solar eclipse in the US

Besides this, the latest version of Android will provide a simplified and better-organized settings menu.

But, in an attempt to right the wrong, Google took down the teaser and uploaded it again with the name 'OctopusTeaser.mp4′, which just reassured what we have all been speculating.

This is the first time that Google has revealed the next Android statue somewhere other than on its Mountain View, California, headquarters, where giant lollipops, ice cream sandwiches and jelly beans grace the grounds. Android O succeeds the company's current-generation mobile OS, Android Nougat.

We assume Google will finally reveal the release's name on that occasion, and while many options for this have been rumored over the past few months, the most votes went to Oreo. That initiative should make it easier to develop and roll out new Android updates.

On sound part, Android O supports high-quality Bluetooth audio codecs such as LDAC codec, which will definitely give audio a boost. Here's what's new with the software so far.
