Android Q details leaked

Some details have emerged for the first build of Android Q, the next version of the mobile operating system used across the world.

Details have emerged around the first build of Android Q via a leak, with some hints towards future features and functionality.

The leak was produced by the people over at XDA Developers who managed to get a developer build running on a Google Pixel 3 XL.

The leaks show a system-wide dark-mode that tints apps a darker colour which joins a number of pre-existing Google apps that have already adopted the scheme.

Take a look at our take on the best Android phones.

The build also hints towards a Desktop version of Android, which could allow users to dock their device and turn it into a functioning desktop - functionality that has been missing from Android for a while.

A revamp on privacy is also suggested which should allow users to customise the permissions on their device to a greater extent, locking off areas of their phones or turning off locations for specific apps.

There are a bunch more developer options that don’t yet have functionality, but do exist - we’re excited to see a full reveal of Android Q around the spring.
