How to keep your Android smartphone secure from data theft and malware

Google released the first Android P developer preview on Wednesday, sharing some details about the main features it planned for Android's evolution. The feature might sound like an overkill which is why Google limits it to the developer preview.

When Apple introduced the iPhone X with a notch, it was expected that Android manufacturers would also follow trend or rather take "inspiration" from its design. The developers have also switched from the cross fade animation used in Oreo when using the back button to a subtle yet clear vertical slide-in/ slide-out whenever you want to switch to different screens within an app. To get the best security, you have to stick to the fingerprint sensor.


While Android 8.1 Oreo used to transition apps vertically, Android P will use a smooth side by side transition that looks pleasing to the eye. You can also show conversations, attach photos and stickers, and even suggest smart replies. The company states that users can access streams simultaneously from two or more physical cameras on devices running the new Android iteration.

According to a report on XDADevelopers the Bluetooth Human Interface Device (HID) profile has been enabled in the latest version of the Android.


I'm not insinuating that Google flat-out copied giannisgx89, but it really is remarkable just how much alike Android P and Flux White are. Google says, "We're continuing to improve the Autofill Framework based on feedback from users and developers". However, folks at XDA Developers have now discovered two commits (basically, changes) in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) for Android P which enable the Bluetooth HID device profile service.
