With the launch of Android 10, Google dropped the tradition of naming the new version of Android after a dessert or sweet. The same will apply to its successor which will simply be called Android 11. However, the VP of Android, David Burke has revealed that the new version of Android actually has an internal codename.
Speaking on the podcast, All About Android, the executive revealed that Android 11 is referred to as “Red Velvet Cake” among his team. However, he clarified that it will not be used officially or any public branding. For those who don’t know, Android 10 actually had the internal codename “Quince Tart”.

It is sad that Google decided to forego naming new versions of Android after sweet treats. The tradition was one of the things that excited Android users and the thrill of having to guess what the name is was also part of the fun.
Android 11 is expected to be released as a stable version in September. The new version of Android will brings native screen recording, a revamped power menu, ability to revoke permissions from apps that haven’t used them in a while, and the ability to increase touch screen sensitivity which should be useful for those who use screen protectors.
