Google has been releasing beta versions of the new Android 12 operating system for a long time, but the official premiere of the stable version of the OS has not yet happened. According to the latest data, the company has already released the fifth and final “beta”, and a fully finished assembly will be available in a few weeks.
Although the official data is still missing, the well-known portal XDA-Developers announced the premiere of the new stable Android on October 4th. The source code for Android 12 will be hosted on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and probably on Google Pixel smartphones.
It is possible that the final release date will still change – Google itself has not published any announcements. But, judging by previous releases, the company is even a little late with the release of stable Android 12, probably due to the difficulties with organizing the workflow in the pandemic.
Unlike some previous versions, the new Android has been seriously revised – both the interface and the security system of smartphones will change. As you know, the beta version of Android 12 is already available for Pixel smartphones from Google itself, as well as some models of leading brands, including Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, OnePlus, Asus and Samsung.
According to some reports, Google is already working on the next OS update. We are not talking about the release of Android 13, but, most likely, Android 12.1 – soon after the release of smartphones Pixel 6. It is noteworthy that the last “partial” addition was a few years ago – we are talking about Android 8.1 Oreo. After that, only “full” versions of the operating system were released.
