According to popular leaker, Evan Blass, the first Android P developer preview is expected to arrive in mid march. If you look at last year’s trends for Android O which started rolling out developer previews in mid march, it seems that this could fairly be possible. As far as speculations are concerned, Google could potentially release it on Pi Day which is on March 14th. This would certainly start another speculation about name being Android Pie (I know, this was bad).
A tweet from Evan about Android P developer preview
Android P Developer Preview 1 is targeting a mid-month release.

The tweet from Evan was pretty small. Therefore, there’s nothing much to talk about apart from this time frame.
Here’re some features that are rumored to make its way in Android P.
- Support for notch interface – Similar to how iPhone X has embraced notch interface, Android P is expected to have it
- P for privacy – It seems that privacy of the user would be at forefront for this version of Android. For example, microphone and camera access could be blocked for background apps.
- Hidden signal strength numbers
- Screenshot editing – Giving user much control over the screenshots (at the time when they are captured)
- Smart replies – for messages and all other system apps (perhaps an API so that others can make use of it?)
Well, all of these are pure rumors right now (apart from mid-march release of Android P developer preview). And the wait continues.
