While Google’s treat-centric naming convention and longer-term support for older versions of its Android operating system for mobile devices means that Oreo has relatively small user penetration versus its snacktastic older brethren, the big G isn’t resting on its laurels as it works to roll out Android P.
And this version of Android is on mission to lure a growing number of iPhone users over to the tasty treat laden dark side of mobile computing, including adding support for the controversial iPhone X style notch:
Google still has some serious work to do to get its most recent Android version to users — only 1.1 percent of Android users are using Oreo — but the company is already hard at work on Android P, which we’re starting to hear the first rumors about in a new report from Bloomberg.
One of the main goals of Android P is reportedly ”improving the look of the software” to better appeal to existing iPhone users in hopes that they’ll make the switch over to Google’s platform. A flashy redesign could help Android phones stand out this year, especially as Apple is said to be putting its own major redesign on the back burner until next year to focus on performance and reliability in iOS 12.
