Poll: what will Android N be called?

Poll: what will Android N be called?

Speculation about the name for Android N is popping up everywhere. And now Google's internal codename has been revealed as New York Cheesecake, but that doesn't mean it will be the final name. So which tasty treat will Google pick for its update? Share your ideas in our poll below.

Internally, Google has a codename that it uses to refer to its new Android versions. These are usually leaked before the release of the commercial name through appearances in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository. They come in the form of three letter acronyms that stand for a dessert. 

The Google codename for Android KitKat was 'Key Lime Pie' (KLP) and for Lollipop it was 'Lemon Meringue Pie' (LMP), while Marshmallow was kindly named 'Macadamia Nut Cookie' (MNC).

With Android N, the letters NYC have been unearthed, most likely referring to a tasty slice of New York Cheesecake. This three letter code, originally spotted by AndroidPolice shows the name 'nyc-dev' in several pages of the AOSP repository.

In the past, these flavorsome names didn't give us any clues to the candy-themed monikers Google eventually settled on. Could this time around be different? Could New York Cheesecake be the name for Android N, or are we looking at yet another mystery with few clues to guide us? 

We want to know what you think Android N's name will be. Let us know in our poll below.

    Really!! most people don't even have Marshmallow that are suppose to have it, and we are talking about the next version. Goggle and the phone manufactures need to get their act together this is ridiculous.

    Maybe it will be called Nik Naks or (Nestlé) Nestum, this will be a good choice especially for a samsung device(s), because they (samsung) are like little children that have to be spoon fed when it comes to mobile devices and firmware ;-)

      Well Cory, I don't know if I agree on the Android name, but I would love to eat that dessert :D

    Nutella would be nicer, but Ferrero would have to be payed, just like Nestlé woth KitKat. But there was no (popular) desert on K, however there are tons of non-trademarked dessert names on N... So, Nougat then?

    Neopolitan. A layered dessert, an icecream, a modern person or location.

    These kind of questions only matter to a Nexus user. Samsung phone owners will only get mad at this...

      And, if I may add, carriers too. They are sitting and picking their noses and we sit and wait till the end of days for a update.
