Google is working on an overhaul of its Android mobile software for a new generation of smartphones mimicking Apple Inc.’s controversial new "notch" at the top of the iPhone X, according to people familiar with the situation.

...A key goal of this year’s update to the Google mobile operating system is to persuade more iPhone users to switch to Android devices by improving the look of the software, the people said.

I know, competition is good. And this article seems to have trouble with the difference between hardware and software.

But I still had to laugh a bit at that last line quoted above, since I've only ever heard Fandroids complain about a million times re the booooring iPhone GUI.

Supposedly, what they're working on with "P" is an accommodation of a notch. There are currently phones that have some aspect of a notch which is necessary with no bezel to speak of.

Sure this wasn't an Onion article?



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

It may as well be. Google's work has nothing to do with Apple. Media just mashed it together as such because they knew it would be more clickable.
