While we have yet to see a device with more than one notch cutout, Google has gone ahead and set the ground rules for the maximum number of notches an Android device can have.

If serial and previously successful leaker Evan Blass is to be believed, then Google could be planning on officially introducing Android P this coming August 20th.

In a Twitter post that could hardly be considered subtle, Blass tweeted an image of an August 2018 calendar where the August 20 box is marked with a green P.

The update also says that the Church will "work with determination" for the abolition of the death penalty worldwide. John Paul II writes that the state has an obligation to protect innocent life from an unjust aggressor.

The timing would be consistent with how Google's handled Android updates in the past. In fact, Android Oreo debuted on August 21 a year ago, so Blass's launch date fits right into that pattern. And just like previous year, the 2018 Google Pixel devices are unlikely to be the first devices to run Android P out of the box as well. Highlights include App Actions that add task shortcuts based on how you use your smartphone, smarter battery use and new navigational gestures.

On the other hand, judging by the relatively low score that the device achieved compared to other Snapdragon 845-powered devices, this could be an early engineering sample so the final version could still come with better performance and more memory. We have already installed the Beta builds of Android P on our Nokia 7 Plus.

It is expected that the final version of Android P will be first rolled out for Google Pixel and Pixel 2 series of smartphones.
