Android OS versions have been known by the desserts in alphabetical order. However, Google has decided to do away with the dessert naming method and instead use numbers. The current Android version, that is Android Pie is also known as Android 9. The next version of Android, Q will be simply called Android 10 without any dessert name to it.
As per Google,
As a global operating system, it’s important that these names are clear and relatable for everyone in the world. So, this next release of Android will simply use the version number and be called Android 10. We think this change helps make release names simpler and more intuitive for our global community. And while there were many tempting “Q” desserts out there, we think that at version 10 and 2.5 billion active devices, it was time to make this change.
Besides the change in naming convention, Google has also refreshed the logo of Android.
The Android brand has evolved over time. Back in 2014, we updated our logo and brand color, and this year, we’re introducing a more modern, accessible look. The design of the logo draws inspiration from the most recognizable non-human member of the community, the Android robot. The robot belongs to everyone in the community and has long been a symbol of the fun and curiosity at the heart of Android. Now, it has a special place in our logo.
The colour of the logo has been changed to black from green that makes it easily readable by visually impaired people as well. The new logo colour combinations have improved contrast for better visibility.
