Earlier this year Google had released the developer preview of upcoming Android N. At that time the company didn’t revealed the name of the Operating System. Now Google has revealed both Name and its version number.
This year during I/O 2016, Google has started a campaign in which it has asked users to name the next version of Android. From the given suggestions, Google has selected Nougat as the name of Android 7.0.

Android 7 Nougat will be released to Nexus devices soon. It will seeded to manufacturers soon and they will release the update for their smartphones (if they want).
