Android N Developer Preview To Make It On Non-Nexus Devices Reveals HTML Code

The launch of Android 6.0 or Android Marshmallow came with its fair share of changes on board. The update was perhaps one of the largest reboot of Google's operating system as we saw not only security and accessibility features achieve some much needed fine tuning, but aesthetics also received a strong boost in the form of material design. But as is with almost every launch in the smartphone world, Android M should soon be replaced with Android N with developer previews already up and running on countless Nexus devices worldwide.


Android N Developer Preview Might Make It On Board Non-Nexus Devices Reveals HTML Code

We've been seeing plenty surface on Android N over the past couple of months in the form of leaks and developer previews, which have given everyone  fair idea of what to expect on the next iteration of Google's widely used mobile operating system. The primary focus of these changes once again seems to be on aesthetics, as looks like Mountain View's eager to give Apple a run for its money in terms of visual display.

Android N's expected to feature changes which include a system wide dark theme, reboot of system settings, introduction of subtle changes such as Quick Settings in the Notification shade and an interesting hamburger menu which gives on spot access to all settings show an interesting approach this time around. Android N has been out in the form of developer previews for Nexus users, but some new information has surfaced today which might indicate that other users might be in for some good luck as well this time around.


An interesting detail has been spotted today in Android N's HTML code today by a Reddit user, which shows that Google just might have different plans for its mobile operating system this year. Android's developer previews have generally been restricted to Nexus devices, with the same lineup also being the only ones in the industry to run pure and stock Android, with the rest coming with manufacturer introduced changes on board.

If you'll take a look above you'll see that hidden in the What's New section, two lines of text show support for more devices, coupled with a seamless OTA update experience which doesn't require flashing the software onto your device. If this does turn out to be true, then we'd expect the amount of Android N developer previews downloaded and installed increased substantially, with a lot more users being able to test and experience its features for themselves.

Its an interesting spot nevertheless, but we'd advise you to stay on the side of caution until such changes actually materialize. Will you run Android N on your device if today's news turns out to be true? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned for the latest.
