As we’re speaking, Samsung is getting ready to launch its next flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 8, but that’s not the only mobile device the company will be presenting soon.

The Google 8 announcement event had special Oreos for the guests… but you can't get them

So, Google finally launched Android 8 and revealed its name — as the fans have been speculating for years now, the O build of Android is named after the popular Oreo cookies. And what better way to celebrate the OS update than with a bunch of Oreos handed out at the announcement event?

We can only hope that it was the same sweet stuff and not, say, wasabi or something …

It’s been almost a month since Samsung sent out an invitation for its Unpacked event to be held on the 23rd of August. The image back then depicted a Galaxy Note 8 silhouette with an S Pen pointing towards it. Pretty obvious who the star of the event is going to be, right?
