In case you don’t know Samsung devices run a custom UI called as Samsung Experience, some features of Android P might get omitted as custom UI possess some of its own customized features. Let me recall you the essential features of the Android P.
Some amazing features of Android P:
1.) Notch Support: Android P brings the much-anticipated Notch support to the Android ecosystem. Notch was first introduced with the Apple’s iPhone X, earlier the devices with notch have to crop the apps running on it. But with the new Android P users won’t face this trouble.
2.) New Transition Animations: Here transition animation means the transitions that appear when we switch to different screens and settings menu. With Android P they get revamped and now looks interesting.
3.) New Navigation Bar: A few days back some leaks were there that have revealed the new Apple iPhone X style nav bar on the Android P. This has not been officially announced yet but Google may be bringing it with the official update.
4.) Multi-Camera API support: Another addition with the Android P is the support for multi-camera API’s. These days a majority of devices are coming with Dual-Camera setup and this API thing allow developers to make use of those Dual-Cameras according to the app to further improve the camera quality.
5.) Background Apps won’t have Mic and Camera access: Android P terminates the Mic and Camera connections when the app goes in background. It is a great step towards security in Android smartphones.
6.) Autofill: Autofill in Android P will be compatible with browsers as well, in case you forgot on the old Android Oreo it doesn’t work in the browsers. As per XDA, the passwords from password saving apps will be communicated to the browser apps for a seamless experience.
