This question could be easy to answer for many of us, but some don’t know how to find their android version. Futhermore, finding the android version number of your device is one thing, but finding the version name is another (for example, Gingerbread or Jelly bean). Let see how to find that information.

How to find the version name of my Android device

Now that you have your version number, you might want to know to which Android name this number is related. I’ve made a list of all existing version¬†numbers with their related version name. I will try to keep that list updated as newer versions of Android come out. Cheers :)
