Android P, the next version of the Google operating system, will be officially launched next 20 August. Android P brings along native gestures for navigating your phone. Phones from Samsung, LG, and HTC typically take longer, as they have a custom skin they put over stock Android.
While it all sounds good, there is this one little problem - we're all still waiting to find out the name of the new Android. Google has always named its Android versions on famous desserts, while this time it seems the company might change that. Through Android Jetpack, a set of app-building tools, developers can reach users across 95% of Android devices. Well, at least according to famed leakster Evan Blass on Twitter.
Android P is also expected to improve the slow adoption of new OS updates as Project Treble will ensure a faster process by skipping implementation of low-level hardware code. Pixel devices can also be enrolled and will automatically receive Android P updates.
