Official name for Android O tipped to be announced on (solar eclipse day) August 21

Official name for Android O upcoming Android operating system – currently being referred to as O – will be officially announced on August 21. The information comes courtesy of Android Police‘s David Ruddock, who cited a source whose info, he say, he cannot verify.

His tweets suggest he knows the name, but doesn’t want to play spoilsport. Ruddock also revealed that the Mountain View, California-based company is planning a spectacle surrounding the reveal.

Now, given that August 21 is a total solar eclipse day (at-least in the US, where such astronomical event was last witnessed around a century ago), it’s quite possible that Google is planning something big this time around.

A solar eclipse day for revealing the official name could also be a strong hint of what the name could be. Any guesses? No? Ok, lemme help you: think of what happens during a solar eclipse.
