HONOR developers get access to Android 15 Beta 1

HONOR today announced that the Android 15 Beta 1 is now available for HONOR developers.

The access was given starting from May 10, 2024.

The HONOR Magic6 Pro and HONOR Magic V2 are the first devices to receive this update, with both devices able to access the Android 15 Beta 1 update.

According to HONOR Malaysia, early access to the latest Android updates for HONOR developers will allow them to test out new features and enhance the compatibility of their apps on HONOR flagship smartphones.

The user experience will be much improved by the upcoming Android 15, which will include enhanced security and privacy, optimized device resource management and many more experience optimization.

HONOR explains that with Android 15, users can safeguard their personal information with greater control in a more secure device environment.

It introduces a SDK sandbox, which allows services such as advertising to be run in a sandbox, preventing third-party apps from collecting private user data.

To further enhance the user’s privacy experience, Android 15 also introduces an enhanced Privacy Indicator with a new permissions management portal that allows users to be more aware of the status of their privacy protection, when managing and invoking permissions for features such as camera or microphone.

Aside from that, Android 15 continues to refine the Android Dynamic Performance Framework (ADPF), which helps manage how power-intensive apps, like Gaming Apps, interact with the power system of the device.

This in turn helps the device better respond to demands on its GPU, CPU, and cooling system, as well as helping apps with long-running background tasks to run energy efficiently.

Android 15 also further optimizes personalized features like for photo shooting via social media Apps with the in-app cameras now able to control flash intensity.

Therefore, developers can use Android APIs, tools and resources provided by Google to further optimize on more personalized user scenarios.
