Google released Android 10 in September 2019, the latest Android OS on the market. Four months have hardly elapsed, and rumors about the new Android version have started to spread. This began with the appearance of a Google Pixel benchmark on GeekBench, where it was running the Android R operating system. The listing shows that the device is a Google Pixel 4 with 6 GB RAM. As for the benchmarks, it managed 712 on the single-core performance test and 2181 on the multi-core performance test.
Google has recently discarded its old naming scheme, where Android versions were named after sweet dishes. The latest Android version is called Android 10. However, Android R might be the code name for the new OS. It is a well-known fact that Google releases four to five beta versions of its new OS before releasing it officially. The Google Pixel 4 in this benchmark listing is running the developer edition of Android R.
At the moment, this is all the information that is available regarding the new Android version. However, as the previous leaks suggest, Google will be removing the 4GB limit on video recordings with the Android R update. This update is also going to introduce a smarter airplane mode, which doesn’t turn off Bluetooth when enabled.
The company is expected to announce the new Android version in a couple of weeks. At first, we will see the beta versions being made available, followed by an official Android OS release later this year. As usual, the Pixel lineup would be the first Android devices to receive the new Android version. It is now only a matter of time before we start to get more news regarding this Android update. So, stay tuned to find out more.
