Soon after the announcement, Android users went mad knowing when it will reach to end users. Recently, Google released the Android P public beta to Pixel users but other OEMs are still waiting to get hands on it. According to Google, the latest mobile OS features great Users Experience as well as other performance changes to make full use of the hardware.
Google has now released an official timeline for the rollout of Android P. And no, don’t expect it much sooner than other versions, but this time, the wait should definitely be worth it with exciting new features like the brand new gesture-based navigation, as well as little everyday improvements like the new adaptive brightness, AI-optimized battery life and so on.
