Now that Android Oreo has had time to get in the faces of the public, it’s time to start considering the next inevitable Android release. According to reputable leaker Evan Blass, it looks like the first developer preview of the next release, currently known as Android P, could arrive during the middle of this month.
Android P Developer Preview 1 is targeting a mid-month release.

Sure, this is just a rumor for now, but it’s worth noting Google has released the first developer previews of its latest software for the past two years in March. Back in 2016, the company stunned us by releasing the first preview of Android N, and they did the same thing last year with Android O. Now, it appears Google will be following suit and release the first Android P beta sometime this month.
As for what we can expect in Android P, a report last month indicated Google’s mobile OS could meet a major redesign in order to appeal to those switching from Apple’s iOS. The operating system will also reportedly make it easier for OEMs to design software for phones that include odd form factors such as those with notches. We could also see better battery life and improved fragmentation amongst devices that get the new software.
