Google may launch Android P’s developer preview in mid-March

by John_A

You might see a glimpse of Google’s next mobile platform very, very soon. Evan Blass, a well-known source of tech leaks, has tweeted that Mountain View is targeting a mid-month release for Android P’s first developer preview. We don’t know what “P” stands for yet, but since March 14th is Pi Day, some people are speculating that Android’s upcoming flavor is “Pie.” According to previous reports, Android P will have the power to prevent idle apps from being able to access your camera and mic. That added security measure can protect you against against malware that can record background noise or take images without your consent.

It will also reportedly support notches, which are cropping up on more and more Android phones ever since the iPhone X came out, and multiple screens. However, it apparently won’t have a dark mode like earlier rumors said and will instead feature a toggle that makes it easier for developers to test a night mode for their app. Once P’s first developer preview comes out, we’ll know for sure whether those are real and what other features it can offer.
