I tried to apply the solutions posted here

and here

To no avail, I still get suggestions for an EditText on my Huawei P-Smart phone and Samsung SM-T585 tablet.

Any ideas ?

TIA

Alright. I know what happened. Apparently, Android is using hint text to get a cue about what the EditText is about.

I had "File name" as hint text, and obviously, Android wanted to help with a name.

When I changed the cue text to "Filename", suggestions disappeared.

Hope it helps whomever is bumping into the same kind of issue.
