Here's the Android Nougat statue at the Googleplex!

With each major version of Android, Google unveils a new statue at its Mountain View, Calif. headquarters. This year is no different, with the freshly minted Android Nougat getting its own mascot outside Building 40 at the Googleplex.

Naturally, we had to run out there this afternoon and grab some pictures of the latest addition to the Android family, which we present for you down below. Enjoy!

  • Would have looked a lot better if they had the Android figure with a big bite taken out of him that showed the nougat.
  • Yes, great idea!! That's how it should have been done.
  • Hmm, like the bite out of the Apple logo... maybe not. ...Joe K.
  • It looks disgusting. Idiots. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nothing more appetizing than ground nougat, guess they are attracting "bugs" to their nougat
  • At least people can sit on the nougat... as long as they're packing some SPF 50.
  • Oh Nougat!!! (Ryu Street fighter voice ) haha Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lol. Well done sir. Posted via my LG G5
  • Lol Posted via the Android Central App
  • JAJAJAJA GOOD ONE! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Namey McNameface forever...or at least until Android O
  • Oreo.....hmmmm
  • That just looks boring compared to the ICS, Jelly Bean and Kit Kat ones
  • Lollipop and Marshmallow are bored too :/
  • exactly my thoughts, my favorites are Honeycomb, ICS, Jelly Bean and KitKat, i feel that they've run out of ideas xD
  • Was definitely expecting Neapolitan to happen. Even goes along with the whole "Be together not the same" slogan that the brand was pushing. Could have even done the Bugdroid in the striped flavors. Oh well, "A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds."
  • Wow that's incredibly lame! Should've at least formed an N with the nougat.
  • That would've been a great idea. Google Nexus 6P
  • That was the same thing I thought when I saw it. Haha Posted via the Android Central App
  • Agree. Super lame. Posted via the Android Central App
  • If I didn't know the name I would have never guessed that's nougat. ...Joe K.
  • Not feeling the name or the looks of the new statue.
  • Me neither, let's just hope the actual software live up to the expectations right?
  • Hopefully that introduction isn't a sign of things to come lol Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • Or perhaps a thing to end Posted via the Android Central App
  • They could have arranged the three pieces to format an "N". Posted via the Android Central App
  • Looks like Andy chopped some timber.
  • Lame #TeamFrosty Nexus 6P
  • Wow...this has got to be the worst one ever. The statue is lame on top of the name being, well, somewhat decent...ish... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I gotta feeling next year they will just stick to letters instead of branding. Posted from my cracked Nexus 6/Nexus 7 2013/Surface Pro 3
  • You think so though? They'll break from tradition and only do the letters?
    I guess anything's possible. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Just looking forward to Android Oreo next year. Hopefully that's the name... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Just as this year it should've been Nutella!
  • If only it was Soft Nought. That stuff is lovely. Posted via the Android Central App
  • It looks rather plain and boring, they need to step up their game for the next version!
  • "That is the sweetest looking statue!" - said no one.
  • Name sucks. Statue sucks. Google fail. Posted via the Android Central App on my Nexus 6P
  • That looks great! Awesome:)
  • Google will recover from this lame Nougat naming fiasco with next year's Orgasm. Just wait for that mascot...
  • I have never in my life had "just" nougat for desert. Most of the time, nougat is used as part of a desert such as a candy bar or in other baked goods. Nougat is ********....
  • So that's the name for the new os then? Andriod N for nougat?
  • Num num num num.
  • Wtf Google? This is super lame... S7 edge/AC app
  • That green nougat doesn't look so tasty.
  • Nutella was too expensive to license? Posted via the Android Central App
