Meanwhile, it should be noted that the Android N is so early in the building phase that there is no name for it yet, though Nutella looks like the best candidate for the successor of Marshmallow -that, going by the history of Android Codenames.

Nonetheless, Google has released the first Android N Preview Images for a few Nexus android devices and the images are ready for download.

The available Android N Developer Preview image include for the Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 9, Nexus Player and Pixel C.
