Google Android P final build to be announced on August 20?

Google Android P final build to be announced on August 20?”

Famous leaker Evan Blass has posted a tweet that has a capital P marked on the calendar, and that makes us believe that we can see a finished Android P version of the platform on that date.

Google usually releases new version of Android in the month of August-September.

The timing would be consistent with how Google's handled Android updates in the past. Google revealed the previous version of its mobile software, Android Oreo, on August 21 a year ago. Android P could likely offer a new gesture-based navigation system to enhance the use of taller displays. (iOS 12 adds something similar to iPhones in the form of its Screen Time feature.) And interface tweaks should clean up Android's look in P.

On the other hand, judging by the relatively low score that the device achieved compared to other Snapdragon 845-powered devices, this could be an early engineering sample so the final version could still come with better performance and more memory. Previous beta versions revealed that Android P will feature smart notifications, a redesigned notifications shade etc. Reports suggest that the upcoming Android OS will enable users to use Dark Theme, and can toggle between brightness settings of Automatic, Light and Dark. Now, the first benchmark leak for the Google Pixel 3 XL confirms that is indeed the case, and of course the phone's performance appears to pale in comparison to Apple's year-old iPhones.
