Android P could be officially unveiled on August 20

03 August 2018

Interestingly, one of the few little nuggets of information which will become known on the release date is the actual name of the platform and what the "P" represents.

Well now we just have to wait till 20th August for the official name of Android P.

The timing would be consistent with how Google's handled Android updates in the past. Previous year also we came to know the the official name of Android Oreo back in August 2017.

New features coming to Android P include smarter power allocation to reduce battery usage by the CPU, and adaptive brightness to optimise the power used by a device's screen by learning the user's preferences - not only relying on ambient lighting conditions.

On the other hand, judging by the relatively low score that the device achieved compared to other Snapdragon 845-powered devices, this could be an early engineering sample so the final version could still come with better performance and more memory. So it should find a home on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. However, it has been various beta versions of Android P, as the next version of Google's mobile operating system is still in development.

After a successful run of Android Developer Previews for the Pixel phones, the rumours of when Google will launch the yet to be named Android P have been running rampant. For example, the most recent version was dubbed Oreo. Rumours suggest that the Android OS for this year might be called Android Pistachio.
