Is this Android P's gesture-based navigation bar?

Some Android Smartphone Manufacturers Hiding Missed Security Updates Report

Android P is coming down the line and we're expecting to hear much more about Google's next mobile operating system update at the Google I/O developer conference in May.

At least we thought so...

Android smartphone manufacturers appear to have been misleading users into thinking their devices have the latest security patches.

A large number of Android manufacturers (OEMs) are skipping security patches but are lying to users about it, according to the team at Security Research Lab (SRL), a Berlin-based cyber-security firm.

Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) Rises to $73.63

This isn't the first time we've seen evidence that gesture navigation is on its way.

"We find that there's a gap between patching claims and the actual patches installed on a device". "Sometimes these guys just change the date without installing any patches. Probably for marketing reasons, they just set the patch level to nearly an arbitrary date, whatever looks best". For one, Nohl believes companies like Sony or Samsung may have missed a few patches by accident.

In a pre-release consultation with WIRED, SRL researchers Karsten Nohl and Jakob Lell looked at over 1,200 phones and tracked their update records through the course of 2017. "That's deliberate deception, and it's not very common". The center home button has undergone a major overhaul as it no longer looks like a solid circle but is pill-shaped. Usually, Google's stock Android builds are slated to get the fastest updates, followed by other manufacturers who ship with extensively customised interfaces. However, the company also chipped some discount to the data, suggesting that some devices tested were not made to certified standards and that some patches weren't included because the vendor found another solution to fix a vulnerability such as removing a feature. "These layers of security-combined with the tremendous diversity of the Android ecosystem-contribute to the researchers' conclusions that remote exploitation of Android devices remains challenging". Google said it was working with SRL Labs to investigate the results of its report.
