Google is reportedly working on the next iteration of its Android operating system. Dubbed as Android Q or Android 10, some key features of the upcoming operating system have been leaked online.
As per a report by 9to5Google, the upcoming Android Q will feature hardware support for a more secure facial recognition. We have seen many smartphones like Oppo Find X and more opting for iPhone X like setup wherein they use dot projector, floor illuminators and infrared cameras to perform a facial scan. With Android Q, Google will bring the hardware support for the advanced facial recognition for these sensors natively.
Google is also planning to introduce screen recording with the upcoming Android Q. The upcoming OS will present “ongoing notification” with options to Start/Stop and Share the screen recording once completed. Further, users will be able to give voiceover for the screen recording. The report further highlights that the upcoming OS will have version number 10, which can be gauged from System UI Demo Mode.
The user interface will also feature an Emergency button, which can be accessed by pressing the power button. Users will be presented with Power Off, Restart, Screenshot and Emergency once they press the power button. The Android Q might also notify users when an app is using something like location, camera or microphone. Users will be able to View details and possibly take action for the same.
The upcoming Android Q will also feature new notification management options. For example, users will see “Manage”, “Block” and “Show silently” options instead of Manage Notifications and Stop notifications. Further, WPA3 support will likely to be introduced with Android Q.
