According to VentureBeat's editor and popular Twitter leakster Evan Blass, the first Developer Preview release of Android 9.0 should arrive in around two weeks. Although there are a lot of name-related speculations, he only named "Pumpkin Pie" as a personal preference. Other desserts that could turn into Oreo's successor include Popsicle, Pecan Pie, Pastry, Popover, Pandoro, and Praline.

Android 8.0 Oreo is still way below the 10 percent market share, but its successor is already in the works. Even more, if everything goes as planned, we might get Android 9.0 P by the end of the summer. However, Evan Blass has just revealed on Twitter that the first Developer Preview build of Android P is scheduled for "a mid-month release." Since he was talking about this month, Android 9.0 Developer Preview 1 should arrive in the next two weeks.

According to a rumor roundup published earlier today by TheDroidWay, these are the most important Android P features that we should get ready for:

  • iris scanning native support
  • spam calls blocking
  • no more support for unofficial Android APIs
  • no microphone and camera access for idle apps
  • display notch support
  • instant screenshot editing
  • (finally) a dark mode
  • support for foldable and multiple screens
  • no network strength indicators (apparently only for carrier branded devices)

Moving on to the name of the upcoming major Android version, we should mention that Evan Blass has a favorite: Pumpkin Pie, according to a Twitter message he posted at the end of last week. However, those not happy with it have a long list of possible names for Android 9.0. Back in November, the Indian website Fossybytes came up with a list of 17 such names. In addition to the favorite of the popular VentureBeat editor we mentioned above, they came up with Pancake, Panna Cotta, Parfait, Peanut Brittle, Peanut Butter Cookie, Peda, Popsicle, Pecan Pie, Pastry, Popover, Praline, Poached Pears, Pandoro, Punch, Pineapple, and Petha.

Do you have any favorite name for the upcoming Android release? Drop a comment below and let us know! Both Parfait and Popsicle sound great to us, being very easy to remember and naming two multi-colored desserts.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
