The information has been tipped by none other than Evan Blass himself where he has posted a picture of a calendar on Twitter marking 20 August with the letter P. Notably Google had released Android Oreo previous year on 21 August.
If you're eagerly awaiting the arrival of Android P, you could be less than three weeks away from the release of the next version of Google's mobile operating system.
This matches Google's hint about the Android P arriving before summer ends.
As of 8 May, the Android Beta Program offers a download of Android P to receive feedback while the version is still in development. They released a timeline that confirmed we'd see a beta 4 and 5 in July, with a release date around August/September. Software beta tests also showed that the new Android 9.0 will have larger images in notifications, and more options for screenshots, alongside a host of new visual and intuitive features. The latest software Android P is in line to release after last year's "Oreo".
There are many speculations about the name of Android P which include Popsicle, Pistachio, Pancake, Peanut Butter, Peda, Pumpkin Pie and much more.
The timing would be consistent with how Google's handled Android updates in the past. The adaptive battery feature is another added feature in Android P. Google has utilized artificial intelligence and the machine learning technology for this feature. We can expect navigation gestures, several features to keep check of your smartphone usage, an improved do not disturb mode, app actions and slices.
Google propelled Android P for designers in March to begin testing its new mobile platform.
