It’s not 100% official, but it’s now looking like “Lollipop” is a definite contender for the name of the next version of Android. A screenshot taken from the Chromium Issue Tracker site as posted by a Google developer, shows a new never-before-seen debug icon appearing in the notification tray that appears to be an Android head on a stick. Or, you know, an Android Lollipop.

Of course, as we all saw with Android 4.4 KitKat, internally it was known as Key Lime Pie. We even had a similar “leak” showing a debugging icon that appeared to be a slice of key lime pie, only to have Google turn around and strike a deal with Nestle to officially brand Android 4.4. as KitKat and the rest is history.

Right now, rumors are pointing towards an official Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android L announcement arriving as soon as tomorrow, so stay tuned!
