Google had announced the latest version of Android earlier at the Google I/O 2018. On the very same day, Google also released the first beta update for Android’s next version known as Android P. Also, we saw that Android P’s second beta was released last month according to the timeline released by Google.
According to the Android P stable release timeline, Google was supposed to release the third beta of Android P by the end of June. However, the company missed the deadline by a little margin as the Android P Beta 3 has been released in the first week of July.
Talking about the Android P Beta 3 update, we already know that it is a release candidate build. This means that the stable update to Android P will be mostly similar to this build. However, there is still some chance that Google might tweak a thing or two and release it in Android P Beta 4.
Thus, you should definitely expect the stable build of Android P to be same as the one found on Android P Beta 4. But, we shall talk more about the Android P Beta 3 which was released yesterday. Regarding Android P, you should note that it will be versioned as Android 9.0.
Apart from that, there are no details about the name of Android P apart from the easter eggs teased by the company. If we take an educated guess, the next version of Android could be named Android Pineapple or Android Pie or Android Peppermint. If you ask me, I will put my money on the last name to come out on top.
There are some handy changes from Android P Beta 2 to Android P Beta 3 as well. The icons used in the navigation bar, settings, and system UI have now been changed. Also, there is a new design for the back, rotate and keyboard switcher buttons in Android P Beta 3.
