It feels like only recently we saw Google introduce the world to its Android Oreo operating system. And, now the company is working on its next OS called the Android P. We also caught a gist of the new features that the new OS could come with. According to the latest news, this new version is most likely to come with iPhone X-like gestures. Also, this latest update was accidentally revealed by Google itself.
An image was posted online which goes on to reveal a different set of navigation buttons. Android has changed paths from its traditional three buttons which are used for functions like back, home and multitasking. The upcoming OS will only feature a single back button and an iPhone X-style strip.
Along with these new gesture controls, support for notch and multi-camera, Google is planning to make its latest Android smartphones similar to the recent Apple flagship smartphone. Additionally, speculations also suggest that the company is planning to introduce new features such as native call recording, options to hide signal strength and a deeper Google Assistant integration.
