Google has announced the developer preview of its next Android version that is Android P. Like the many past years, Google always gives us a preview on March of every year before its official release in May. The announcement comes with the new features that the Android P will be offering for smartphone users.
Dave Burke, VP of Engineering, Android, Google, in a blog post said “Looking ahead, today we’re sharing the first developer preview of Android P, the newest version of Android. It’s an early baseline build for developers only — you’re our most trusted reviewers and testers ;-),”
Since this version is not for customers and it is for developers only, Google wants the developers to use it and give them the valuable feedback and suggestions to improve the OS.
Google will unveil Android P and much more at the Google IO 2018 Conference which will taking place from May 8 to May 10 at Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA.
One such interesting feature we know so far is the ‘Display Cutout Support’, which will make use of the entire 18:9 aspect ratio screen smartphones along with a cutout for the camera and the speaker. And this feature can be very similar to the iPhone X.
You can find the rest of the features of Android P on the android developer blog page.
