Android 6.0 Marshmallow was released last year and some devices are yet to receive the upgrade. Now Google has already developed Android N, and it was expected to roll out during the Google I/O conference. Instead, it released the third preview.
Android M brought multiple impressive features which were built on the design of Android 5.0 Lollipop. Apps like native fingerprint support, Doze battery saving options, Android Pay and more are included. To come up with better OS, Google is developing Android N with tons of new features.
The company released the beta version of Android N on March 9. in order to get it in the hands of users and developers as fast as possible. This was done to receive more feedback, make additional changes, and then launch it as Android 6.1 or Android 7.0 “N” this summer.
Google in March confirmed the launch of N “later this summer.” For the time being users download a beta program on your device. Even though you have manually flashed the upcoming OS, users can simply sign up for the beta and get the latest version right away. Thus, the upcoming OS is more stable, enabling feature complete, and seems to work even smoother as per Gotta be Mobile.
The Dev preview 3 of the new Android is available and according to reports, it also said that it runs pretty great on our Nexus 6P and Pixel C. However, there are some bugs that should be addressed to.
Speculations are indicating that Google will be naming Android N –Android Nutella, notes PC Advisor. It will be a free software update for all smartphones and tablets.
Tech companies like Samsung, Motorola, LG and more will be getting the support of the upcoming OS. Many companies are still gearing up to finish the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so that when Android N will be released the smartphone makers would begin the soak test and start the roll out.
Although Nutella is suspected to be the name, internally Google is calling it as New York Cheesecake.
