When Google released the Android L Developer Preview back at Google I/O, they didn’t give us a Specic Name for what L would stand for; a codename. We know that it’s going to be a desert starting with L, but the question has been what that is. A lot of people have been considering Lollipop and Lemon Pie, but today we get multiple references to “LMP” in AOSP, the Android L SDK, and a WiFi certification document of the HTC made Nexus 8 Tablet (Flonder). This leads us to believe the next Android version could be officially called “Lemon Meringue Pie”.
Android Police starts by revealing a reference in the Android SDK. If you navigate to the “extras/android/m2repository/com/android/support/cardview-v7/21.0.0-rc1/cardview-v7-21.0.0-rc1.aar” file, you’ll find the L Preview referenced as “lmp-preview-release”.
Then there’s the AOSP evidence. A simple search for “LMP” turns up nine results, one of them with “LMP” right smack in the subject header.
