Google is working on a new version of Android, Android P, whose internal codename appears to be "Pistachio Ice Cream."
Android P will apparently feature a drastic visual overhaul, the first one the OS has seen since Android Lollipop and the introduction of Material Design in 2014.
System - Generation - Smartphone - Mind - Devices
The system is reportedly being designed with a "next generation of smartphone" in mind, devices that will support flexible displays, multiple screens, iPhone X-like "notches," and more.
Google is apparently working on a "dramatic redesign" of its Android operating system, according to a new report from Bloomberg.
Search - Giant - Look - Mobile - Operating
The search giant has stuck with a single look for its mobile operating system (OS) for quite some time now, but it's now reportedly looking at Apple for inspiration.
The new version of Android — which Bloomberg says is called "Pistachio Ice Cream" internally — will apparently be designed with the space for a cutout at the top, much like the iPhone X and its so-called "notch."
Manufacturers - Samsung - Huawei - OnePlus - Technologies
This will help third-party manufacturers, like Samsung, Huawei, OnePlus, and more, to more easily adopt face-scanning technologies like the iPhone X's Face ID, replacing fingerprint readers and not lagging behind in security measures.
The move, Bloomberg reports, is part of a larger plan to bring in as many iPhone customers as possible over to Android, particularly in the high-end, premium segment of the market, where Apple dominates.
