Android N was unveiled in early March, when the first Developer Preview was available for download. Google didn’t want to wait until its I/O conference to introduce the new features that will be added to Android N, such as multi-window, bundled notifications, improved Doze mode or direct-reply notifications. Soon will be released Developer Preview 5 (near-final system images for final testing), then the final form will make its appearance on the new Nexus devices. Samsung will have plenty flagships that will be upgraded this fall or in the next weeks, after the release of Android N.
Google hasn’t decided yet how to name Android N, which is rumored to be released in September, one month earlier than Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This fall will be released the new Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 devices and they will come pre-installed with Android N, the new operating system will roll out to older Nexus devices and flagships created by other companies.
Samsung is one of Google’s first OEMs, creating the Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 10 and since then, it remained one of the companies that had priority when new Android updates were released. And now it has a bunch of flaghips that are waiting to be upgraded to Android N: Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, S6, S6 Edge and Note 5.
Android N could be named Nutella, Nougat, Nectar or Nuts – these are the suggestions that Google has received via the online poll conducted by the developer to decide the dessert name. Either way, another improvement that will be name to Android N is related to the new JTI Compiler, which will cut installation times by 75%, and will help reducing the size of installers by 50%. Android N VR is another new feature that was introduced in Developer Preview 2 and it allows users to play games, watch views or view location in virtual reality via Google’s Daydream VR platform.
