Google has scheduled its yearly developer conference, Google I/O, to take place between May 8 and May 10 this year and the heavy-hitter of the event will most certainly be the next flavor of Android that will undoubtedly be announced on stage. Google has made it a tradition to release milestone Android releases each and every year and guess what – 2018 is the time for the letter P, which will have the honors of headlining the dessert name.

The Wall Street Journal today suggested that the reversal might have taken place because of a 2012 Congressional report that claimed Huawei’s telecom equipment was used to spy on corporations and governments.
