With the recent release of Android 14 QPR3 Beta 1, Google has subtly hinted at the impending arrival of Android 15 through a tweak to its Easter egg feature. Android updates typically introduce unique Easter eggs, and Android 14 was no exception. It features an outer space-themed Easter egg in its Settings menu.
However, the latest version has brought about a noticeable change – replacing the circular Easter egg badge with an inverted triangle. While this alteration may seem minor, it holds significant implications for the upcoming Android 15 release. Easter eggs embedded within Android versions often provide insights into the theme and direction of each iteration. In the case of Android 14, the Easter egg hinted at satellite connectivity.
The inverted triangle-shaped Easter egg replicates “V” representing Android 15’s “Vanilla Ice Cream”
The shift from a circular design to an inverted triangle in the Android 14 Easter egg is no coincidence. Android versions typically follow an alphabetical naming convention, with each version associated with a letter. Android 14 corresponds to the letter “U,” while Android 15, internally known as “Vanilla Ice Cream,” corresponds to “V.” Therefore, the change in the Easter egg’s shape strongly suggests Google’s preparation for the imminent release of Android 15.
Further reinforcing this speculation is the subtle alteration within the Easter egg itself. In addition to the change in shape, the Easter egg now references “Vanillaicecream^Tau,” indicating a deliberate nod to the upcoming Android version’s codename. This attention to detail serves as an indication that Google is gearing up for the unveiling of Android 15.
While Google has yet to officially announce the release date for Android 15’s first developer preview, historical patterns suggest that it may arrive as early as February or March. The adjustment to the Easter egg serves as an intriguing precursor to the unveiling, generating anticipation and excitement among Android enthusiasts.
