Qualcomm Technologies has announced that it is ready to implement its next-generation operating system, which is called Android P, on selected Snapdragon mobile platforms. Qualcomm, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, has collaborated with Google to develop its new operating system. The chipmaker had early access to Android P, which proved to be a big advantage for them.
Taking full advantage of their situation, Qualcomm Technologies optimized its software on Snapdragon 845, 660, and 636 mobile platforms to ensure that the OEMs upgraded just in time or per the Android P at the time of launch.
Qualcomm Technologies holds a prominent position when it comes to mobile phones, and of course, their range in producing mobile phones is huge. This helped Google improve the speed of its OS upgrade cycle and enabled OEMs to bring their latest software enhancements to consumers faster than previous Android OS releases.
The joint effort of Google and Qualcomm will accelerate the availability of key new enhancements to consumers. Xiaomi is already supporting the latest software release on their new phone Mi MIX 2S and OnePlus is planning to do that for their upcoming OnePlus 6. Others too, for example, OPPO, Vivo, and Sony Mobile, are also planning on previewing the new update with the developers so that they can use them in their latest phones. Android P is expected to be released sometime later this year.
