  • Google Pixel 2XL

Google has shared the Android P system image link for Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel and Pixel XL on its developer website.

Google was expected to offer the Android P developer preview download this month and that is precisely what the company has done today. The Pixel C was recently removed from the Google Store, which meant that Google no longer had an Android tablet under its name.

The final version of Android P will be available for download on the Pixel devices mentioned above at some point in the third quarter of the year, likely in August. If you've been following the news recently, you know that Android OEMs have jumped on the display notch bandwagon that Apple brought to the public limelight with the iPhone X.

It's not the kind of job that you can have without fully devoting yourself to it 100 per cent", Winfrey explained. Colbert summoned God to appear on the ceiling of the Ed Sullivan Theater and he made his case as best he could.

Apart from these features, the Android P developer preview also comes along with support for multi-camera, built-in support for HDR VP9 video, improvements to Autofill framework, new Neural Networks API, and more.

It's simple: Google isn't brining Android P to its earlier devices, including the Huawei-made Nexus 6P, the LG-made Nexus 5X, and the Pixel C tablet. So, users can access multiple streams at the same time from more than one physical camera. Developers will have to make sure that everything looks neat even with a notch when creating their apps. For example, with the Pixel 2, Google upgraded its update policy to three years for major OS updates and monthly security updates.

Native notch support means that developers will not be too much anxious about their apps switching to full-screen mode on devices with and without cutouts at the top of the display.

One of the more notable features touted by Google is new messaging notifications.

Open the extracted Android P Developer Preview folder and execute the flash-all.bat file. The official release of Android P should follow sometime in the fall, if you'd rather skip beta testing altogether.
