Google has generally launched new versions of Android operating system at its annual I/O event. But this year, it seems that the search giant has adopted a different strategy and pushed the Android N release date to early September.
Google’s Android N mobile OS will replace the current v6.0 Marshmallow. Surprisingly,in 2016, Google started releasing the Android N preview builds earlier than expected.
For those who are not aware, the latest Android N is still in beta testing phase. Google has already rolled out three versions of the preview build. The tech company is expected to release two more builds before making the final version available for public.
Lat month, Google released the Android N Developer Preview 3 for Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C tablet and General Mobile 4G Android One.
At the Google I/O 2016, held last month, the tech firm did not even unveil any new Nexus device running on Android N build. Google was also expected to announce its much awaited Nexus 7 (2016) tablet at the Google I/O event.
Prevailing rumors indicate that Google will launch the Nexus 7 (2016) as well as the new Nexus-branded smartphones with Android N pre-installed in the latter half of 2016. Speculations hint that Google has roped in HTC to make two upcoming Nexus 2016 smartphones.
Google, however, has not yet announced the official Android N release date. The company has invited all its customers across the globe to suggest a name for Android N.
The second Android N Developer Preview indicated that Google may embed the pressure-sensitive display technology right into the upcoming Android mobile operating system. The preview builds also hinted at features like a default dialer app, which can be treated as a missed call indicator.
Moreover, Google’s upcoming mobile OS may also improve the camera quality of Android-powered devices, especially nexus smartphones. Google Nexus devices lack key camera feature like white balance adjustment, shutter speed corrections and more as compared to other Android handsets including Samsung Galaxy S7 and HTC 10.
