Google 'borrows' from iPhone X for Android P design

Android P is already getting people excited to try out all its features. Some of them will make iPhone switchers feel right at home.

One of the tech industry's most wholesome traditions is Google's naming of each new Android version after a "sweet treat". In previous versions of Android, active apps were displayed like a stack of cards that could be scrolled vertically.

According to the "Korea Mobile Internet Industry Report 2017" published last month by the Korea Mobile Internet Business Association, Google Play accounted for around 60.7 percent of mobile app content sales past year, with most of the revenue coming from mobile games.

To access recently opened apps - the multitasking menu - you'll have to swipe up on the pill icon. Rather than the usual three keys "back, home and multitasking" that have been in Android for years, the Android P just has two keys which are "back and iPhone X-style home" keys.

Lockheed Martin (LMT) Stake Held by Public Employees Retirement Association Of Colorado
Buckingham Capital Management Inc. acquired a new position in Lockheed Martin in the 3rd quarter valued at approximately $208,000. Nine equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and ten have given a buy rating to the company.

Android P could get a new navigation bar, too. Photo: 9to5GoogleGoogle has not removed the back button, but it is believed the back is now context-aware and only appears when required.

Shortly after the blog post publication, Google quickly edited the screenshot to crop out the navigation bar. We do not know for sure if this feature is going to be fully implemented in the final version of the OS but it seems unlikely that it would not be. Google has previously tested different interfaces that don't make it into final Android releases, so there's a chance this one could be scrapped.

At the start of the year, a Google Streetview mini-game inside the firm's developer lab included a cryptic image of a pineapple cake, while a tweet about the company's developer conference in May - known as Google I/O - saw the logo turn into something that looked awfully like a pineapple.
