Google must submit the release of the new version of Android and Android 9.0 name in spring of 2018 at the annual conference for developers – Google I / O. In summer, several beta versions will be released, and by fall there will be an official release of a new “sweetness” from Google.
This year, Google will not deprive the sweet tooths of attention, and, without departing from the tradition, will come up with a name in honor of the world-famous dessert. What sweets Google will give preference this time, it remains only to guess. It is only known that the name will begin with the English letter “P”.

It is rumored that Android version 9 will slightly remind the interface of iOS 11. So, suppose that the swipe left / right / up / down will provide access to different functions, which eliminates the need to run some applications and widgets.
Google Edge and Google Crown are very similar to the functionality that is currently built into the Samsung Galaxy Note. They serve to increase the usability of the smartphone. For example, to launch any features quickly, activate applications or search for contacts in your Android version 9.
With the increase in the quality of shooting photos and videos, the amount of information and memory of the smartphone increases. Therefore, Google can make the possibility of taking photos “from the cloud”, which means transferring the photo to the cloud immediately after shooting and instantly removing its local copy.
It is also assumed that Android version 9 will have a variety of video processing capabilities.
Face recognition requires considerable cost for device manufacturers. But Google has a good experience in AI and can combine this with the face recognition function, so as not to force manufacturers to use a powerful hardware, for example, in the form of a dual infrared camera. But this is just a guess about Android version 9 feature, let’s see what Google will give us.
