There is no secret: the final version of Android 8.0 should be released this month. However, according to David Ruddock, this should already happen next week.
Channel editor Android Police and reliable source when it comes to Android, Ruddock published on Twitter that the official version of Android 8.0 for the Pixel line should arrive next week. The tweet gained momentum in the Reddit and, after 176 comments, the community seems to be confident that Android O is very close to launch.
I’d look for the official Google Pixel Android O update to land in about a week. Could be pushed, but that’s the timeline for now AFAIK.

Of course, the universe of Pixel smartphone users is very select, so releasing the new version for the Pixel and Pixel XL would not be a big problem for Google. What the community says is that, after the last preview of Android 8.0, released last week, despite the bugs, just a corrective update is enough to give more stability to the software.
In addition, after the Pixel, it would be the turn of the Nexus line to receive the new platform. This should happen in the next two weeks. In the meantime, the developer team would still have time for bug fixes until the software reached a larger base of Android users. But the most important thing is that, being announced next week, manufacturers could already work on adapting their interfaces for Android O and, thus, speed up the process of updating their devices. What should start between the months of October and November.
So, what do you think: are we close to knowing what the new OS will be called or not?
