It appears Google wants to introduce the dark mode in Android Q, which is the next major release of the Android operating system.

Android users have clamored for years for a dark mode across the entire OS, and it looks like the wait is almost over.

It's no secret that Google has been taking steady steps toward supporting dark mode in most of its Android apps.

Last year Google released a research showing the benefits of Dark Mode on the battery especially if the device uses AMOLED or OLED screen.

A post by a Googler, Lukas Zbylut, spotted on the Chromium bug tracker has revealed that Android Q will come with a dark mode. Unlike the LCDs, the OLED displays can turn off pixels representing black colour, thus requiring less energy to display content.

Apple iPhone XI to come with three cameras on back
There's no doubt the iPhone XI will support wireless charging and have aluminium core - even if it is for the premium models. Some previous rumors suggest that the third camera will be a 3D ToF sensor, but it's still all speculations for now.

Dark mode is an approved Q feature [.] The Q team wants to ensure that all preloaded apps support dark mode natively. Unfortunately, Google couldn't follow its own research as Android Pie skipped system-wide dark mode support. Ever since, the Android users have been cautiously optimistic about the feature.

While the possibility of Android Q coming with a native dark mode is high, things might still change. Google could always alter its timeline if it sees that not all apps would be ready for Dark Mode.

2019 has barely kicked in, but rumors about Google's I/O event where Android Q is about to be announced are already starting to swirl. At the Google developer conference held a year ago, the company gave a preview of the Android Q system.

According to Android Police who first reported the news, Google has changed the permissions for the thread on the Chromium bug tracker, so it is no longer accessible.
