Weeks after its official end, it feels like winter is finally relenting, and Google seems to be getting into the vernal spirit: the company shared a number of spring-themed wallpapers on its Instagram Story yesterday, featuring its trademark color scheme in a variety of warm-weather scenes with the message “Happy Spring Screening.” One of the screens in particular, featuring Google-colored ice pops, looks like it could be a tease for the full name of the upcoming Android P—but it almost certainly isn’t.
Speculation that Android P would be named Popsicle has been floating around forever. Despite its popular generic usage, Popsicle is actually a registered trademark owned by Unilever. Considering Google made the requisite deals to make Android KitKat happen, that Popsicle is trademarked doesn’t necessarily preclude its use as a version name; what does make Popsicle seem a less likely candidate, though, is how blatant a hint this would be—Google isn’t in the habit of revealing version names so far in advance. Still, the frozen treats make for a pretty nice wallpaper for the warmer months.
