Android O rumored for August 21st release

Android O rumored for August 21st releaseā€

Since Google has recently released the fourth and last Android O Developer Preview, it seems the now delay may not be a long one and it may release at any time. DP5 is now available within the Android Things Console, but the DP5 update will not be pushed automatically to devices without your intervention.

There are several new features in Android O. One is picture in picture, which will let you watch a video in a small window on your smartphone while you perform other tasks. It is unclear what is the reason behind this delay but at least we are soon going to find out what is Google planning to call its next version of Android.

Google gears up for Android O release.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Android O may debut in the second week of this month. The samples include interactions with buttons, sensors, LEDs, and displays, as well as implementations of Google Assistant and TensorFlow.

And while it remains unconfirmed by Google that Ruddock is on the money here, he did tweet out some further news. In addition, Intel Edison and Joule boards will no longer be supported, as Intel is discontinuing them. Since the alleged Nokia 8 was spotted with Android 8.0 on Geekbench earlier this month, rumors claimed that the Nokia 8 could be the first non-Google to arrive preloaded with Android 8.0. The platform, which uses the Android subsystem, is aimed at low-level hardware like the Raspberry Pi for instance.

Finally, Google has also implemented "dynamic pin muxing" for the Pi, which means pins being configured at runtime depending on what features are being used. He also claims to already know the name of Android O, but said that he didn't want "to ruin the surprise". The carrier board taps Technexion's Pico i.MX6UL COM.
