Android P was announced during the Google I/O for developers and while the tech giant usually reveals the name of the next iteration of its OS after it is launched, this year is no exception as well. However, while Google is expected to announce the list of devices compatible with Android P, according to a new report, the official name of Android P might have just been leaked before its launch.
According to a report by Android PIT, the development comes from a Polish site named tabletowo, which states that when one of their readers contacted Huawei customer support in order to check whether the Huawei P9 Lite mini (SLA-L22) will be getting an Android Android 8.0 Oreo or EMUI 8.0 update, the company responded by saying that the smartphone will only get security patches in the future.
However, the conversation then tilted towards the Huawei P9 Lite 2017 and the Huawei customer support mistakenly slipped the official name of Android P as Android Pistachio. Now the thing is, Bloomberg earlier reported that the Android P might be called Android Pistachio Ice Cream, and while this new development goes with the earlier rumors, Google might decide to launch Android P as Android Pistachio rather than Android Pistachio Ice Cream, as the former is a more catchy and shorter name for its next operating system.
While we have already seen Oreo, Nougat, KitKat and more in the past, and Android Pistachio seems to be a suitable name for its new OS. Coming to the Android P features during the Google I/O, it was announced that Android P will come with new features such as an Adaptive battery option, Adaptive brightness, App actions, Smart Text Selection and a redesigned Quick Settings.
