It’s not a shock that Android 11 is within the works. It most likely has been for fairly a while now, however Google has solely now made an official reference to the upcoming iteration of its smartphone working system.
In accordance with 9to5Google, an official app for the Android Dev Summit is the place the reference is made. Apparently one session within the convention is titled “Making ready for Scoped Storage in Android 11”. That simply makes it clear that Google is seeking to get devs began on preparations for brand new developer-oriented options in Android 11 properly earlier than shoppers even get to listen to about it.
As identified by 9to5Google, whereas the Android 11 identify isn’t shocking (what else would they name it after Android 10), this reference to Android 11 alerts that Google goes to undertake the ultimate identify of the OS instantly, not like earlier years the place the corporate used a codename for the working system.
I’ll certain miss the guessing sport we performed yearly like clockwork questioning what dessert identify the Mountain View big will go together with for its upcoming launch of Android. We’ve had a lot enjoyable, particularly with Oreo, and Pie, that the Android 10 identify, when it was introduced, got here as a disappointment, regardless that it does make Android sound extra skilled in its identify than one thing like Android Queen of Desserts would’ve possible sounded.
The Android Dev Summit 2019 will start later this month in Mountain View, California, and is scheduled to happen over the course of two days.
