Google Pixel 2 running Android Q spotted online

Android Pie

Previous reports suggest that Android Q might offer a system-level screen recording feature, similar to what we have seen on iOS.

Google seems to have updated the bug tracker in the time since Rahman's tweet went live, but the link that he shared still leads to a page for tracking issues in the Android Q developer preview.

If major manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, and Huawei were to participate in the programme, this could greatly improve the adoption of the latest version of Android, as OS updates generally take quite long to reach these smartphones.

Android Q will nearly certainly be unveiled at the annual Google I/O conference in late Spring/early Summer. The fact that there is a Google Pixel 2 in the wild that is already running the build indicates that the work on Android Q is going on in full force.

Earlier the versions were only made available on Google's own Nexus and Pixel devices. While talking in the Android Developers Backstage podcast, the developer has confirmed Google's plan to collaborate with even more manufacturers for Android Q Beta program. We had, I believe, eight OEMs including Pixels, so seven OEMs other than Pixel. Generally, we have seen Google launching its new Android Versions around August and we can expect the same this year also. So at Google I/O [2018], when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that awesome. "But the trend is positive and strong, and I am very happy about this". The number is bigger for the upcoming Android release, but we don't quite know the OEMs involved just yet. The list included, Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. I can not share the exact numbers yet.

The Android Q developer preview, much like its predecessor may be available to more devices this year thanks to Project Treble.
