Internet search giant Google is expected to unveil their new and upcoming operating system, Android O at their Google I/O event shortly. Google has once again thrown open the naming scheme for the public to decide but clearly, the winner is rumored to be 'Android Oreo'. The Android ecosystem is always named after sugary products.

It's true that a lot of Google partnered OEMs most likely do not bring out quick software updates to their devices which are a major concern to new Android smartphone buyers. While Google themselves have been very stringent in making sure all Google devices are taken care of at the earliest, it's not the same case with manufacturers like Samsung especially who take their own sweet time to release new software updates. Google now plans to change the way updates are rolled out to the devices starting with Android O.

As per reports from GSMArena, Google wants to incorporate a new module based on the operating system itself beginning with the Android O operating system, where Android now be equipped with a vendor interface or VI part of new development efforts from Google which they have termed it as 'Google Treble'.  Its aim is to separate the proprietary software from the manufacturer written software code for specific devices.

More details from The Verge reveal Google will now be introducing a major change in the way software updates will be rolled out to all Android O users by splitting apart its own work which will be rolled out to devices than wait for the partner to implement the new software into their own written code. If it goes as planned, manufacturers like Samsung will be able to roll out updates immediately without the relying on chip manufacturers like Qualcomm.

Overall, this looks very promising from Google who's trying their best to make sure all Android smartphone users get to enjoy the latest operating systems, which hasn't been the case in all the previous years so far. Google will surely explain more in detail during their Google I/O event that begins in less than 5 days from now.
