Final version of Android 9.0 P could arrive on August 20 alongside official name
Currently, Google is yet to make any official announcement in regards to the launch date so it remains speculation for the time being. However, the date does coincide with the brand’s previous releases – Android Nougat made its debut on August 22, while Oreo arrived on August 21. In regards to what the official name will be, this is also unconfirmed at this point, although certain rumors have mentioned Android Pistachio, Android Pumpkin Pie, or simply Android Pie as possible candidates.
Regardless of what the new version of Android is called, the release will bring various improvements such as Adaptive Battery and Brightness. Furthermore, a new gesture-based navigation system that makes better use of taller displays will be offered alongside a new rotation button that appears in the navigation bar. Also, a big focus on the digital wellbeing of users will also arrive.
Upon the announcement of the final version, Google is expected to push the update out to its Pixel smartphones shortly after. Additionally, devices that have supported the developer preview release are also expected to receive the final release in a timely manner, something that should provide a big boost to the initial adoption rate of the OS.
