Android Operating System version is called by a code name. In this instance, my device is showing 6.0.1 which means MarshMallow.

Likewise, your Android device version has a code name. If you wish to know the code name of your Android version, then please do a Google search with your version number.

The Android devices vary. So, the location of the "Android version" option may also vary.

If you don't find the option in the location I've specified, then just tap the Search icon at the top right corner on the Settings app (See the second screenshot) and type Android version. Now you can see the option.
