Android P is out in beta...for some select devices

Android P has finally arrived. This is excellent news for some people, they will be able to discover the new features that Google has prepared. Of course, this is only a beta version so theoretically we could find many bugs, but as the developer preview versions progress, the number of errors  should decrease until the final version is released.

What can you expect from Android P? Find out in our video of the alpha preview:

For others, the arrival (although partial) of this new version only increases the problem of fragmentation of Android versions. Barely a little more than 1% of users are on Android Oreo, almost 43% of users have a version lower than Marshmallow. It's a lot, too much even. We can only hope that manufacturers will up their game with Android One and Android Go

Which devices can install Android P?

For each device, 3 options are possible:

  • The update is available.
  • The update is not yet available, but the manufacturer has confirmed that it will be.
  • The update has not been confirmed, but we think that it is probable.

At the moment, this new version of Android can only be installed on 4 devices, all originating from the big G, of course. This tradition dates back to the Nexus era, when Nexus had a reputation for being devices for developers, and therefore the most suitable for testing new versions.
