Google will announce the 8th version of android on the same moment as the sun eclipse. This will be on Monday 2:40 local time or 6:40 Greenwich meantime. The coupling from this event to the launch is the reason for the O and for the name of the site eclipse. On this site you can follow both livestreams.
The most important preview of the developers version are the limits on the background running of apps. This should improve your battery-life. There is also project treble, where google wants to uncouple the android OS Framework’ to the ‘vendor implementation’, so it can update faster.
For the name we can guess what candy they will take, but Oreo is already mentioned in one of their videos. But we will see.
