Google Could Make Android Q's Preview Available Much Earlier To Users

The next major build for Android will be Android Q and it is largely expected that the update should be released in 2019. Also given that Google tends to release previews ahead of the release, we expect that this should remain the same as well. However it now seems that Android Q’s preview could potentially be released much earlier.

This was teased during the recent Android Dev Summit where according to Hung-ying Tyan from Google’s Project Treble team, he gave a talk about Generic System Images which is basically Android in its purest form based on AOSP code that allows for the testing of Android compatibility.

Limited Edition Spider-man Ps4 Pro Available For Pre-order On Amazon

Limited Edition Spider-Man PS4 Pro Available For Pre-Order On Amazon

With the Sony PS4 Pro, the company essentially introduced a more souped up version of the PS4 that would allow it to play games at higher resolutions and smoother frame rates. However we expect that not everyone has hopped on board the PS4 Pro bandwagon yet, but if you are looking for an excuse, just last month Sony launched a limited edition Spider-Man PS4 Pro that looks stunning.

In fact if you were tempted by it, you might be interested to learn that Amazon now has the bundle up on its website where you can pre-order it. The bundle is priced at $400 which makes it slightly more expensive than a standalone PS4 Pro, but you get a copy of the game along with a rather striking Spider-Man design, which we have to say is one of the more exciting designs we’ve seen for the PS4 Pro in recent times.
