LineageOS 16 (Android 9 Pie) is coming – Find Out If Your Device Fits In

LineageOS 16 (Android 9 Pie): Global events from tech giant mean good news for smartphone users. Be it Facebook, Apple, or Google, whenever tech giants come up with is a global event, it is no less than a jackpot for smartphone users. With one such event a fortnight back, Google set the new word rolling; Android P, officially.

Update [6-Aug-2018]: Android 9 Pie Released with Gesture-based Navigation and More

Although Android P has been in the news ever since Oreo updates started rolling, there was no word from Google until Google I/O 2018 – A developer preview was organized. Google to introduce Android P stable OS only after 4 Developer Previews, of which the first one has been launched.

So far as the beta version is concerned, Pixel devices have already received Android P and Google tests features vigorously before introducing stable OS with Android 9.0 P. There have been lots of expectations from Android P and they have been exceeded after the Google I/O event, which opened the pandora box of Android P features. The Essential Ph-1 will be the first device to receive the Android 9 Pie soon.

But what about those holding devices, which have already received Android 8.0 Oreo update? What about those older Android 7.0 devices which are never going to get any further update for their OS? What if they wish to have Android P without buying a new smartphone?

To all these and such questions, the answer is LineageOS 16. Yes, LineageOS has already started working on its new custom ROM, which will be based on Android P. LineageOS 16 to offer the same features as Android P will have.

Actually, custom ROM has been blessings for devices older than a year as it runs out of warranty period. You can root the device using TWRP, which allows you to backup the current OS that can be reinstalled in case custom ROM does not work. Once rooted, you smartphone provides you with countless opportunities to tinker with every aspect of the smartphone

So, far as custom ROM is concerned, LineageOS 16 has made a name for himself for being highly innovative, more enhanced than Google OS (in some cases), and far more stable compared to another custom ROM. Besides, installing LineageOS custom ROM is much easier. 

Here is the possible change log of LineageOS 16 based on Android P:

  • A new update for phone and app notifications
  • A Dark mode Device with AMOLED screens
  • Notch Support (Developers)
  • Improvements in Performance for Kotlin based apps
  • Developed Auto-fill with machine learning
  • Smaller image sizes
  • Better support for DND and call blocking
  • Neural network API implementation
  • Support for Multiple Camera API (HEIF Image compression and improved video codecs for HDR VP9 video profile 2)
  • A new designed Screen Shot option now available in the Power-Off menu
