Android 14 could be internally referred to as ‘Upside down’

    Android 13 is expected to be Google’s next major smartphone release globally, with the first beta for Pixel devices expected to drop any day. However, a successor to Android 13 is also in development, and according to a new report, we finally have an internal codename for ‘Android U’.

    Some of the first commits pointing to Android 14 have appeared on Android Gerrit, according to a report by Developer XDA. These commits refer to the Android 13 successor with the codename – ‘Flip Cake’.

    As you may already know, all versions of Android have certain codenames that are also alphabetized and themed after dessert.

    These codenames have been around for years, and while recent versions of Android are just numbers (Android 10, Android 11, etc.), the dessert names Google assigns to all versions Android still exists as an internal codename.

    What is puff pastry?

    A proper dessert, Upside Down Cake, as the name suggests, is a cake that is baked with the top layer on the bottom and the cake on top. While it’s not a popular dish like Tiramisu or Ice Cream Sandwich, we don’t blame Google because desserts that start with the letter ‘U’ can be hard to find.
