Google may launch Android P on August 20

Android P will land on August 20, according to EVLeaks

Android P could be officially unveiled on August 20

Of course, in usual Google style, Android P will only grace the Nexus and Pixel devices at launch, before other manufacturers release it on their supported devices.

The famous "leaker" Evan Blass, known on Twitter as @evleaks, shared an image on Thursday that shows August 20 as the release date of Android P: given the great reliability of Evan Blass, we can give it nearly for sure. You can sign up for the Pixel beta, or install it on phones from Sony, Oppo, OnePlus, Essential and more.

Highly anticipated: Google's upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have high expectations to live up to compared to their predecessors.

Google names each new version of Android alphabetically and after a candy or sweet.

Civil liberties campaigners and Muslim women's advocacy groups have argued that the ban is discriminatory . When the ban went into effect, dozens of women came out in the Danish capital, Copenhagen, to protest it.

Hopefully, thanks to Google's Project Treble, the P rollout won't be restricted to Pixel owners this year. Blass has tweeted that the launch date for Android P as August 20, which is accordance to that of Android O launch of August 21, 2017 on the day of solar eclipse. The software has been available in a developer beta, but Google hasn't yet announced an official launch date. That "P" can only mean one thing - Android P. But, it will take time to bring them to the market.

While it all sounds good, there is this one little problem - we're all still waiting to find out the name of the new Android. Since then, we've seen five developer previews and four betas for a bunch of devices.

So, when will Google release Android 9.0 P to the general public? At least that's what the known tipster, Evan Blass claims.

Earlier reports have also cited that Android P could likely avert idle background apps from accessing the camera. Pixel devices can also be enrolled and will automatically receive Android P updates.
