2019 just started and most of the eligible phones are yet to receive the update to Android Pie. But folks over at XDA Developers already put their hands on an early build of the next major version of the operating system: Android Q. We still do not know how Android 10 will be called, but thanks to the screenshots and a hands-on video of the early build leaked we can have a first glance on some of the improvements that will be included in this version. Android Q will have a brand new Dark Mode: it will be useful for everyone who has a smartphone with an OLED display and wants to save energy, as well as not getting tired eyes in the night thanks to darker colors.

Samsung is about to rejig its entire smartphone portfolio in 2019, so be prepared for a bunch of new naming conventions as well as a whole lot of confusion.
