Last year we witnessed for the new version of Android OS called Oreo, and like in every year this Google will unveil the new version of Android operating system and this year’s version will be named Android P. If we go through the Google’s tradition then the company unveils the latest version of Android at the Google I/O developer event, and in this year the event is scheduled for May 8. Moreover, the company rolls out the first developer preview in March, if the company continues its tradition then we will witness for the first Android P developer preview by next month.
It seems that the company is planning to bring the latest version of Android with a totally different design which we have seen on Android. According to the latest report, Google will design the all-new Android P with iPhone X-like notch in mind. It is also said that the company will change the complete design of Android, which indicates that the company will bring new Material Design.
The iPhone X-like notch design which we saw in last September, its a new design in the display which is equally hated and liked by people. That notch is actually a cut-out which consists of a front-facing camera and other sensors required for the functioning of Face ID. Well, iPhone X is not the device which comes with the notch in last year. We also witnessed an Android device which is called Essential Phone, which also came with a similar kind of design.
Apart from the changes in design, Android P is also said to come with a much tighter Google Assistant integration, which also includes integrating the search bar on the home screen with the Assistant. Moreover, the report also says that the Android P is called Pistachio Ice Cream internally.
In my opinion, this is a really great move by Google as Android requires a big change in design because the company took similar kind of design from a long time and I expect the search engine giant will bring a totally different Android design.
