Google is expected to unveil Android M during its IO event this week. The new operating system is rumoured to focus on improving battery life and RAM usage.
Android M, internally known as Macadamia Nut Cookie, will reportedly cut the number of location check ins, reduce background tasks and activities when the phone is unplugged and the screen is off.
Up to now, various phone manufacturers have implemented measures like this into their own battery saving modes. Android M will implement them into the core experience. This is great news for anyone who has struggled to get their phone to last the day.
Android M will also use less RAM or manage its RAM usage better. Less RAM usage could also contribute to longer battery life.
If Android M optimises how much RAM is used, it could also mean that devices will run faster and smoother. This is also something that older devices could benefit from.
Android M is expected to be released in August. Stay tuned to our coverage from Google IO this week for all the latest details about the new OS.
