Google has announced its next generation of operating systems will be renamed from Android Q to Android 10, completely ditching its usual desert name scheme for OS up until this point (Android Oreo, Nougat, Pie, etc.) As a result, Google is also redesigning its logo for Android to a “more modern, accessible look” to reflect its new outlook.

In a blog post, vice president of product management for Android Sameer Samat stated “As a global operating system, it’s important that these names are clear and relatable for everyone in the world. So, this next release of Android will simply use the version number and be called Android 10.” He continued “We think this change helps make release names simpler and more intuitive for our global community.”

The operating system was originally previewed in March where a demo was available at Google’s annual I/O developer conference in May. Its strongest selling point appears to be its privacy features, introducing more granular location controls and a dedicated privacy section in the settings app. The OS is also poised to support foldable phones, improve launch time for apps, and include gesture-enabled navigation.

Although there’s no date for when the operating system will be available, Nokia plans to update its Nokia 7.1, 8.1 and 9 PureView phones in Q4 of this year while Android intends to update 14 additional phones in Q4 2019 as well as the second quarter of next year alongside its new logo.

In other tech news, new details on the rumored iPhone Pro, new iPad, and 16-inch MacBook have surfaced.
