From a feature and functionality perspective, there are some decent changes and improvements to look forward to with the release and availability of Android P. Google will be introducing gesture-based navigation, an entirely new and redesigned multitasking interface, and even a powerful markup editing tool for screenshots and instant sharing.

This is in line with the release dates of Android 7.0 "Nougat" (22 August 2016) and Android 8.0 "Oreo" (21 August 2017). But it seems that the wait is going to end soon.

Google has not made any announcement yet regarding its upcoming Android operating system launch date, however, the leaked date from the tipster does coincide with previous Android OS release timeline.

He still struggled to read which way Anderson was swinging the ball and the pace bowler found the edge of his bat four times. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took four wickets for 60 runs in 25 overs while paceman Mohammed Shami had two for 64 in 19.

Google said that there are now 16 devices with notch cutouts from 11 manufacturers that are already running Android P and there are more on the way. These beta versions have been notably unstable as well, and we still don't know what the "P" will stand for. Devices now part of the Android P Beta Program should get their updates soon after, while we can also expect some devices to release with Android P out-of-the-box in the same time frame. Google has previously hinted at the possibility of it being called Android Popsicle, but it's possibly that the company was simply teasing its fans. The beta version bought features like indoor positioning, improved messaging experience, notch support, multi-camera support and others.

This wouldn't exactly be surprising, as the final preview build was released to testers just last week.
