Moving to OpenJDK from Java APIs : Google is officially be making the switch to OpenJDK in Android N. It’s still Oracle code, but OpenJDK is, as the name, suggests, part of the open-source Java Development Kit.

Google confirmed: “we plan to move Android’s Java language libraries to an OpenJDK-based approach, creating a common code base for developers to build apps and services.”

Stock stylus support : Samsung Confirmed this feature, they hinted at stock stylus support in Android N by planning to retire several of the main S Pen features from its Look API.

New messaging app : Google Planned to introduce an all-new messaging app with Android N to replace the largely unpopular Hangouts SMS/MMs. New messaging app will be based on the Rich Communications Services (RCS) platform, which allows for much more than just talk and text to be shuttled around, including video chat, file sharing and instant messaging. Google has publicly admitted its commitment to the RSC standard, but there’s no telling yet if it’s anywhere near ready for inclusion in Android N.

  • Android N Rumors :

    No Android N app drawer

    Everyone knows that there is rumor in market that Android N will not have one of the Android’s most iconic features App Drawer in Android N version.

    We found some evidence during the MWC 2016 show, which started piling up, with the LG G5 and HTC One X9 these phones came without an app drawer and the Galaxy S7 having an option to remove it.

    While the new Sony still have the app drawer their latest phone Xperia X range does have an app drawer, but Sony’s Marshmallow concept provides a “classic” and “modern” view – with and without the app drawer.

    Google Confirmed Android N will not have App Drawer :

    Google released Google Maps App update official video which as good as confirmation of Android N will not have App drawer.

    Here is the Google's Official Tweet with video : Which confirmed that Android N will not have app drawer.

    Android Authority Says : 

    Absence of the app drawer in Android N, by showing a Nexus 6P with no app drawer shortcut on the home screen. However, the black nav bar, 5:00 time, Google app re-named as Search and only three apps in the dock could just mean this is a quick render and not a sign of things to come. It would just be a very convenient coincidence if it’s not true.

    Android N Name ?

    Google Confirmed Android N Name: Nougat

    Sundar Pichai said he'd ask his mother or let fans vote for the official Android N name. So it's still secret what will be the name of Android N version.
