Just a few minutes ago Google unveiled the first Android P Developer Preview. After recent rumors had been expected in the next week.
And again, Google manages to surprise us with the idea of a new Android version in the Developer Preview. A few days earlier than expected, we – or better Android developer – get to see the first preview of Android P. After all, we see a preliminary logo for the new iteration of the operating system and also get some insights on the Google blog .
We learn there that the aspect ratio heif (High Efficiency Image File Format) is supported natively with Android P, it will be a support for the Notch give so Developer “Camera Cutout” may take into account when developing this. There will also be improvements to both indoor navigation and the messaging system. The latter will also be able to propose intelligent answers.
At this time, the preview will be available for the first and second generation Pixel smartphones . On the blog, Google expressly declares that these early versions are explicitly aimed at developers and not end users:
The Android P Developer Preview has been updated to include the latest Android emulator and Pixel, Pixel XL Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices. We plan to update the preview system images and SDK regularly throughout the preview. This initial release is for developers only and not intended for daily or consumer use .
Next you explain there that currently the download files, all of which you will find here , manually downloaded and flashed by hand. So if you are not in the topic, keep your hands off this “Alpha” version of Android P, even if you have a Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL.
We keep our eyes open and are sure that even before the Google I / O further details are announced or leaked and then we crumble for you also on what to expect with Android P for the current state.
