It’s only a substantive change in name as the images will still need to be downloaded and flashed — users are guided through a fastboot ADB process. Existing Developer Preview users are getting an over-the-air update.

The company confirmed to Android Police that the update brings the latest Android P Developer Preview 3 (Pixel beta 2) changes in addition to as the June security patches.

Andy Rubin recently was reported to have considered strategic options for Essential including selling the company.
