Simply put any new Android device will have AI capabilities.

Autofill framework

It will make it easier to autofill shopping and other information forms.

Security

It has new security features, including a unified fingerprint authentication dialogue and high-assurance user confirmation of sensitive transactions. It implements StrongBox Keymaster, a module that contains its CPU, secure storage, a true random-number generator, and additional mechanisms to resist package tampering and unauthorised sideloading of apps.

It will encrypt Android backups with a client-side secret. Because of this privacy measure, the device’s PIN, pattern, or password is required to restore data from the backups made by the user’s device.

Enterprise gets attention with new remote management and security features.

There is a raft of usability and accessibility features too.

And what does P stand for?

Android is usually named after sweets – Kit Kat, Nougat, Marshmallow and Oreo.

Here are some P names it should consider

  • Pana Cotta (unlikely)
  • Pancake (my bet) or Pikelets here!
  • Pez (after that pop-out lolly)
  • Picnic (front runner)
  • Pizza (a departure from sweets but why not break tradition)
  • Parfait (unlikely)
  • Petit Four (unlikely)
  • Peanut Butter (maybe)
  • Popsicle (too US-oriented)
  • Pecan Pie (maybe given how the US loves this)
  • Pumpkin Pie (maybe but depends on whether they want a single word or not)
  • Praline (maybe)
  • Pineapple (Queenslanders would love it)
  • Pudding (no)
