Only users with Google Pixel were able to have their hands on the Android P Developer previews, but the recent update on Android P says that Xiaomi is working on the Android P Developer Preview for their MIX 2S series. This got confirmed when one of the officials wrote a threat on the MIUI forum (the threat is now deleted).
The release date for the official OTA push is expected to be before 8th May (or 7th May), which is on the same day of the Google I/O 2018 Conference. For those who want to have an early access to it, FunkyHuawei has already shared the firmware update for Android P (Chinese Language).
According to the MIUI forum the new features the Android P will have are:
- Simplicity, speed, and many new ways to extend your apps.
- MessagingStyle and other notification updates
- ImageDecoder for bitmaps and drawables
- Data cost sensitivity in JobScheduler
- Display cutout APIs
- Multi-camera APIs
This also ensures that Xiaomi MIX 2S can be the first device to get the Android P after Google Pixel. As the current version for download is in Chinese, hence we all have to wait till 8th to get the final OTA English version.
