According to a new report by Bloomberg, this year’s Android P update is said to have better support for phones with notched-displays.
This would mean that Android P would be better suited for phones such as the Essential Phone.
In addition, Google will be integrating the Assistant more tightly into the OS and even offer Assistant integration for third-party developers. Android P will also bring improved battery life and support for new phone designs such as ones with multiple screens and foldable displays.
Bloomberg also adds that Google will be trying to persuade more iPhone users to switch over to Android. This would come in the form of an improved design.
Internally, Google is said to be calling Android P by the codename Pistachio Ice Cream but that won’t be the official codename for the update.
We should be seeing the first Android P developer preview sometime in March, with more details to be announced at Google I/O in May and a final release at the end of the summer/ fall.
