Google accidentally revealed Android P takes more from the iPhone X than just the notch
While Google last week may have slyly revealed what Android P will actually be called upon its release -- Popsicle, perhaps-- the search giant may have accidentally revealed an interesting new feature coming to its next-gen OS. In a blog post detailing new Android P security enhancements, it appears that Google developers inadvertently included a screenshot that illustrates a new array of navigation buttons. Originally spotted by 9to5Google, the screenshot, which has since been removed, suggests that the next iteration of Android may borrow key gestures from the iPhone X. In other words, Android P is taking inspiration from more than just Apple's notched display.
As evidenced by the photo below, you can see that the usual Android array of three buttons on the bottom of the display have been narrowed down to two. What remains is a hollowed out back button and a pill shaped horizontal bar that may emulate the functionality of the virtual home button on the iPhone X.
