Remember when we referred to versions of Android OS by desserts? Android 1.5 was Cupcake, 1.6 was Donut, 2.0 was Eclair, 2.2 was Froyo and so on.
The folks at Android stopped using desert names with Android 10 back in 2019. But that The folks at Android stopped using dessert names with Android 10 back in 2019. But that didn’t stop these popular smartphone operating systems from getting unofficial names internally.
Android 10, which was officially known as Q was Quince Tart and Android 11 was called Red Velvet Cake.
Well, Dave Burke, the VP of Engineering for Android at Google recently tweeted, in celebration of the Android 12 source code being released, a background photo of Android themed snow cones.
In it, Burke called Android 12, Android Snow Cone.
Now that the Android 12 source code is out on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), it’ll take a while for it to make its way to everyday consumers.
Of course, folks using Google Pixel and phones using plain Android are expected to get the upgrade first.
Then it will be a race between all other Android phone makers to see who will adapt Android 12 to which of their phones first.
