From the leaks that we ve come across so far, the next iteration of Google s mobile operating system, Android N is likely to replace Oracle s Java API s with open source OpenJDK. While there won t be any noticeable changes from a user standpoint, developers will be benefited from the move as Open JDK is likely to enable them to write apps in a simplified code.
Android N is also rumored to bring split-screen multitasking feature that will allow users to run two different apps side by side. Google might also bring DisplayPort support for USB Type-C connector, the working of which could be similar to Continuum feature on Windows 10.
A couple of days back, we also came across Android 7.0 N leaked screenshots that reveal hamburger type drawer for easy navigation between sections. Also, while other details about Android N are scarce at the moment, Google would likely be focusing on improving security, multi-tasking and user experience.
