Android P: which is the next version of Android after 8.0 Oreo has been announced at Google I/O 2018. Although, this is Just the beta version and Google are still working on it but they’ve given people the chance to get a taste of it before the actual release. Usually, only Google Selected phones get to run a new version of Android before others.
However, Google is opening this to some other Select android devices. Among these devices are obviously the Google pixel phones, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s, Nokia 7 Plus, Sony Xperia XZ2 and a few others. So if you’ve got any of the mentioned devices, you can also install Android P beta version.
