When will Android Q be released and what will be the news and features of the next smartphone of Google robot? Here’s everything you need to know.
Q Android, the new version of the operating system of Google dedicated to the green robot smartphone, will be presented and released throughout 2019. Its release scheduled for the next few months of the new year has already begun to give rise to theories and rumors about the possible novelties and functions designed to change the world of the mobile market once again.
There are many Android smartphones, including Samsung and Huawei to name a few major producers, used by millions of users every day. The 2019 will not fail to innovate in the field of smartphones: from the coming of 5G to the devices with a folding screen, it is clear that Google is working to bring in the next models a revised version of its operating system, intended to replace Android 9 Pie.
Here’s everything we know so far about Android Q.
Android Q: release date
According to the timing of the years passes, it is possible that we will see a version of Android Q for developers already arrive starting from March 2019. This will allow us to take a look at the new features and the likely aspect that will be present in the first official beta release, which could be placed in the first quarter of next year.
The last time Google announced a new version of Android before August 6th was on Android Jelly Bean: for Android Q you can expect the same kind of treatment. As happened for 9 Pie then the end of the summer seems to be the most papabile period for the debut of the unprecedented operating system developed by Mountain View technicians.
What is it really called Android Q?
It is no secret that Android operating systems are named after sweets: after having had, in recent years, Android 8 Oreo and Android 9 Pie, for what will be the Q contained in the name of the new Google mobile OS?
Try to imagine the possible new name of the operating system is really complicated: there are many to suggest terms such as Quinoa Pudding, Quenelle Queen of Puddings, which could be reduced to an elegant Android Queen.
These are the names of the versions released in the past years, up to today:
- Android Donut (v1.6)
- Android Eclair (v2.0)
- Android Froyo (v2.2)
- Android Gingerbread (v2.3)
- Android Honeycomb (v3.0)
- Android Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0)
- Android Jelly Bean (v4.1)
- Android KitKat (v4.4)
- Android Lollipop (v5.0)
- Android Marshmallow (v6.0)
- Android Nougat (v7.0)
- Android Oreo (v8.0)
- Android Pie (v9.0).
To be honest, none of the options possible and hypothesized with the letter Q sound particularly appealing and it is possible that a possible rupture by Google of the confectionery tradition, opening up to a new course.
Features and news: what to expect from Android Q
The new features of Android Q are still a mystery: certainly we will see a new user interface, redesigned according to the features and new features coming for new smartphones. The biggest and most obvious update will be the new controls through gesture, potentially improved and more intuitive in Android Q.
While in current smartphones it is possible to use two windows at the same time, some layouts arrived online assume a use of up to three windows at the same time, allowing the use of three applications thanks to a Multi-Resume function (particularly relevant in view of smartphones folding).
To this, the manufacturers of Android smartphones will necessarily have to accompany a higher hardware compartment than the one already available today (which reaches up to 10 GB of RAM).
It is said that Android Q will represent a total revolution compared to Pie, indeed it is more likely that the new working system will work to improve significantly than what has already been done by the latest version of the green robot. More details will emerge in the coming months, and it is obvious to expect really interesting news.
It is not entirely clear which models will be involved in the launch of Android Q and which will install the new Google mobile OS: top models will almost certainly receive the update, but many smartphones currently on the crest of the wave could remain by mouth dry.
