Thursday in CE: Android P OS Embracing Notch Design, Suffocating Innovation
With a developer preview released yesterday, we are starting to get a better picture of what Android P will look like. Sans-quirky-name (for now at least) Android P will likely roll out with the newest Pixel later this year, and the developer version feels like a very limited beta.
But that doesn't mean we can't start making our own conclusions.
First and foremost, Android P addresses the notch. The developer version allows the OS to create a faux-notch so developers can see how their app will interact. Everything from a big bulky window to the Essential's camera dot is included so the next batch of apps know how they will react.
