Tiramisu is a deliciously easy Italian dessert constituted of coffee-infused ladyfingers and whipped mascarpone and/or cream, nevertheless it may be the interior codename for the subsequent model of Android. That’s if a brand new commit reported by XDA Developers is to be believed. “Rename T to Tiramisu,” the note reads, in what XDA notes is the primary public point out of a dessert-based codename for Android 13, anticipated to launch subsequent yr.
Up till Android 10, every model of Google’s cell OS had each a model quantity and a dessert-based identify, which progressed alphabetically with every new launch. Android 4 was Ice Cream Sandwich, 4.1 was Jelly Bean, 4.4 was KitKat, and so forth. However Google dropped the dessert names with Android 10, when it was within the unenviable place of getting to provide you with a dessert beginning with the letter “Q.” Since then, the general public names of every Android launch have solely been numbers.
Internally, nevertheless, Google has continued to make use of dessert names for every new Android model. Android 10 was internally known as “Quince Tart,” Android 11 was “Red Velvet Cake,” and Android 12, which is currently in beta forward of its launch this fall, is seemingly “Snow Cone.”
I’m not a large fan of tiramisu the dessert, however Tiramisu the Android identify? That’s one thing I can get behind. “Turkish Delight” is a little bit too lengthy for a reputation, and “Twix” would simply really feel like a rebrand of KitKat. That mentioned, I’d have additionally accepted “Toffee,” “Treacle Tart,” “Trifle,” “Truffles,” or… wow, is anybody else getting uncomfortably hungry?
