Google is Starting Work on Android P (Android 9.0) in the AOSP Master Branch.

A new tag has opened up in the Android Open Source Project called “master-p” that indicates that commits made to the AOSP master branch will show up in Android P (presumably Android 9.0).
The three commits show that Google is now testing Android P on the Google Pixel (sailfish) and Google Pixel XL (marlin).


As you can see, the code name is Android P as compared to Android O for the previous release. Furthermore, the platform version is PPR1 compared to OPR1, which follows Google’s new build number conversion.

Also as per latest rumours there will not be a maintenance update for 8.0
That is there would not be a 8.1 release.

A full meter could be shown with a lower or higher dBm value, which may result in a carrier’s customer to believe that their signal is stronger than before the Android P update.


The carriers mentioned in the commits include Vodafone Libertel in the Netherlands (20404), Verizon Wireless in the United States (311480), and Telstra Corp. in Australia (50501, 50511, 50571, 50572). We can’t speak for why these carriers requested this change
