Android sweet name convention
Android has been with us since 2007 and debuted on the HTC Dream in 2008. Except for the alpha and beta versions, all versions were named after desserts or sweet treats. We had Cupcake, Eclair, Gingerbread, KitKat, Lollipop and Oreo and more.

Android Q Is Android 10
During development, the next version of Android was known as Android Q. And there was a lot of speculation about which dessert Google was going to use as the name. After all, there aren’t many sweets that start with Q.
