Android 12 Release Date, Features, And Supported Phones/Devices

Many people will still be expecting for Android 11 or maybe Android 10 to appear on their phones, but Google is assured to already be tough at trial on Android 12.

While we don’t know much about what the next android will offer yet, there are already a few hints, all of which you will find in this article, along with information regarding the release date.

In this article, we have ordered the release date first, features of Android 12 next, and finally the most awaited roadmap of Android 12- smartphones that are eligible to rock the upcoming Android OS. Comparable to the previous version, this version will also be listed numerically and will be called Android 12.

Android 12 Release Date

We might receive our first official glimpse of Android 12 soon, as Google often drives developer previews in the first few months of the year. Android 11, for instance, appeared in developer preview mode in February of 2020. Then, in May at Google, we saw the first public beta – this was the earliest version dedicated for general customers, and many of the new features might first appear here too.

As for the final finished version of Android 12 in public, that first beta version will likely arrive in May 2021 based on past pattern, though originally presumably only on a small number of handsets, including Google Pixel 5 and Google Pixel 4a, along with the new Google Pixel 6 expecting such a phone launches.

It will be up to device manufacturing companies to bring Android 12 to your phone, and that often takes few more months to do, so don’t be offended if your particular handset doesn’t perceive Android 12 until 2022.
