Google recently sent out the final developer preview of Android O, the next major Android release, which meant that work on the public version has been completed. The final beta is usually a build of the public version that’s seeded to developers so that they can test it out before the company releases it to millions of users across the globe. According to a new report, Google might finally release Android O to the public next week.

Google is yet to confirm the official dessert moniker for Android O. The company has not yet confirmed what this version of Android is going to be called. Everyone is just referring to it as Android O for now.

According to the report, Google is going to start rolling out Android O to the public next week. The company’s own Pixel handsets will obviously be among the first few devices that receive said update.

Given the immensely fragmented nature of Android, it’s going to take a few months before this update is released for the flagship smartphones that have been released this year, smartphones like the Galaxy S8.

So, even if Android O is released next week, it’s going to be a long time before most of the Android users get a taste of the new version of Android.
