The name for Google‘s next-gen Android OS version is still shrouded in mystery. While we know it adopts the letter P, we still can’t say what the P stands for. Google may soon reveal that officially, though. That is if the latest rumour surrounding Android P launch is anything to cling on to. According to popular Twitter tipster Evan Blass, Google with officially launch the new Android version on August 20.

The post didn’t contain any other detail about the next iteration of Android but the date doesn’t look unrealistic. Android P has for a while now been part of developer previews. The first developer preview rolled out for Google’s Pixel models some 5 months back and since then five developer preview builds have been released. The Pixel handsets will be the first models to get Android P when it debuts. Google did reveal that the Nexus models, including the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel C won’t get the upcoming upgrade.
We can’t verify if the launch date is correct because Google is yet to reveal anything officially pertaining to the launch date. However, it is interesting to note that Android 8.0 Oreo launch took place on August 21 last year. So, it is possible Android P would debut this August.
