Google usually only unveils a new version of Android in the third quarter of the year, but the Mountain View company could be launching Android N sooner, perhaps during the Google I/O developer meet, which is scheduled for May 18th to 20th 2016. It released a preview of N earlier this year, to provide OEMs some extra time, to roll out the update much more quickly, and also to enable them to launch devices with Android N directly.
