The next Android update comes later 2017. Android O is the next coming version of Google’s mega-popular mobile operating system set to release this year.
This is relevant to a Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X or Pixel C.
This big Android update for 2017 will continue its beta following the Google IO 2017 presentation and will likely debut in full first on the Google Pixel 2.
Don’t have a Google-branded phone? The company announced Project Treble, an initiative that will ensure that Android O comes to many more devices than previous operating system updates.
Some Features We like:
Faster boot times
Speedy boot times are usually associated with a step-up in hardware – Google unveiled that Android O will bring those benefits to all phones that run the software.
It’s not just the operating system that becomes faster to load up, but the apps on your phone too.
Restricted background activities
This is a power-saving feature that de-prioritizes app functions running in the background, which in turn means that your battery is going to possibly last much longer than it currently does on Android Nougat.
Paired with likely improvements to the Doze function that intelligently saves battery during down-time, it’s feasible that Android O could help squeeze an extra few hours out of your phone battery life from fully charged to depleted.
