The Android Q developer preview, an early version of the major Android update planned for later this year, may launch today. The speculation arrives via XDA Developers Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman (h/t Android Police) based on findings in Google’s Android Q bug tracker.

In the issue tracker, which Google recently made viewable to the public, Google provides a link (highlighted in red in the image below) to a page where you can view previously reported bugs. To access the page, you must head here and select the OEM option from the drop-down menu.

If you click through the highlighted link, you’ll be taken to this page, which, as you can see, has the March 11 date already filled in.

This suggests the tracker will begin to feature bug reports from today onwards, indicating that Android Q will also arrive before the day is done.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for this, but if it does launch today like Android P’s first preview in mid-March 2018, Google Pixel owners should be able to test out the software themselves.

Excited? Let me know what you hope for from Android Q in the comments, and find out what we know about it so far in our dedicated Android Q features page.
