Xiaomi and Google Are Working Together To Create a New Android One Phone, Claim Reports

Xiaomi might make the next Android One smartphone

And after the last preview that was made available in July, the next thing to expect would be the official live streaming of the same, where Google would be revealing Android O to the world. There is no information on what the "O" stands for, but Google had posted details about the new features of its all-new operating system. The gradual rollout of Android O to Google's Beta Program, Pixel and Nexus devices could provide a closer look at how the new features stack up. As tradition abides, the new Android OS will be unveiled along with its very own statue to commemorate the launch, which will finally end the suspense as to what the new platform will officially be called.

Quick Setting: New version of Android provides better quick setting. Under this new feature, users will be able to use certain apps over other apps.

That said, Google is making some much-needed updates to preserve and improve battery life, putting it more in line with some of the battery-saving features long in place in Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) iOS. But if tweets from Evan Blass and David Ruddock are to be believed, we might have Android O on 21st August.

It's been almost one hundred years since we've seen a solar eclipse at the same scale as the one that sweeps across the United States on Monday. An Easter egg in the latest developer preview also featured an octopus. The event will be live-streamed from NY at 2:40PM ET. It'll start filtering out to them soon, so keep an eye out for a notification if you've got one of the eligible devices. Android O will make notification tab tidier and will also add new visuals and group for the notifications. We know this primarily because Google just launched a solar eclipse-themed teaser website that counts down to 21 August.

Android 8 Oreo could be released to Nexus devices starting from October.

The next version of Android is now known as Android O, but that's not the software's official name.

Apart from the fact that Google introduces new version of Android once a year, the Nexus and Pixel devices are expected to be on board post this.

Google and Oreo's maker, Mondelez, referred to their deal as a partnership, rather than a sponsorship, as no money was exchanged.
