Android P leak shows new features ahead of Google's I/O conference

We are just hours away from Google I/O's keynote, but a fresh new leak unveils a good chunk of the new features that the upcoming Android P is going to bring. These include a revamped navigation menu with new gestures that turn the home button into a scrolling bar, adaptive battery and new DND (do not disturb) feature.

According to the leak and the screenshots provided, there's a new option in the settings menu called "Swipe up on Home button" that removes the recent apps button on the right and replaces the home button with a horizontal scroll. Reportedly, a single swipe up switches between apps and a second swipe displays all your previous apps.
The "recent apps" menu has been revamped as well - a horizontal scroll pops up in the home button's place letting you navigate easily as the layout is now horizontal rather than vertical.
We are not sure, however, why there are navigation buttons on the screen when gestures are enabled in the first place. It kind of undermines the purpose of those gestures. Of course, this is still a beta version of the software so Google might remove them once the full-fledged version of Android P is released.

"Adaptive battery" and "Prevent ringing" features
Moving on, we find a "Prevent ringing" function, which is activated by pressing down the volume up and power on button. It might just be a shortcut to the "Do not disturb" mode for all we know. And last, but not least, a new battery saving feature called "Adaptive battery" should squeeze a bit more out of the battery by limiting some of the infrequently used apps's background running.
Although these screenshots look legitimate, there's a possibility that they are fake. We will know for sure once Android P is revealed during today's Google I/O conference.
