It hasn’t been too long since Google announced the availability of Android 8.0 Oreo, but it looks like Google is wasting no time on the next generation of Android. According to reports it seems that Google has already started work on the next build of Android, which presumably will be known as Android P.

In a report from XDA, it has been noted that Google has recently opened up a new tag in the Android Open Source Project called “master-p”. While it was not explicitly mentioned, this has led to speculation that Google has already started work on Android P. It also seems that Google has started to test out Android P on devices like the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

However like we said, we cannot confirm anything yet since Google has yet to officially announce or comment on it, but we suppose it isn’t that much of a stretch to think that Google has already started to plan the next major Android update. It should be noted that Android O’s developer preview was actually released earlier this year, so assuming Android P’s developer preview will be released around the same time next year, it makes sense that Google needs to start working on it.

It is too early to tell what kind of features or changes Android P will be bringing to the table, but this is a development that we’ll definitely be following.
