So, android P is expected to be launched somewhere between July to August. The Beta version of Android P was launched on March 8 this year.

Enthusiasts have been speculating the name for Android P for a long time now.

Some of the common names which came upon internet are Pineapple, Pineapple Cake, Pineapple Pie, Pie, Profiterole, Peanut Butter, Pumpkin Pie, Pancake, Popsicle, Pecan Pie etc.

The most relevant one is Android Pineapple as the Google teaser had this year’s I/O location with a puzzle-based street view and pineapple cake was featured as one of the items in the puzzle.
