The first phones to receive the Android 12L version developed by Google for large-screen devices have been announced. Here is the list…
The list of phones that will receive the Android 12L update has appeared. Developed with widescreen devices in mind, the operating system aims to increase usability on 600 dp and above screens. Emphasizing that it should not be seen as a ‘new Android version’ by Google, Android 12L will also take its place on foldable phones.
The company shared the timeline for the Developer Preview versions of Android 12L. Announcing that it will start releasing the beta version in December, Google stated that the work will continue until 2022. During this time, developers will be able to make their apps compatible with Android 12L.
Android 12L is coming out in the first quarter of 2022
The Developer Preview of Android 12L is now available to Android Studio users. Google will release the first public beta in December. The beta process, which will continue in January and February, will end in March 2022. On this date, Android 12L will be introduced to the user with the official version.
Of course, the update will not be limited to Pixel phones. Google has confirmed that Android 12L will come to the Galaxy Z Fold3, along with key features such as ‘Activity Embedding’. Activity Embed will allow you to view two properties of an application at the same time. This feature will also be available on tablets on the market, including the Lenovo P12 Pro.
Smartphones that will receive the Android 12L update:
- Pixel 6 Pro
- Pixel 6
- Pixel 5a (5G)
- Pixel 5
- Pixel 4a (5G)
- Pixel 4a
- Pixel 4
- Pixel 3a XL
- Pixel 3a
After the official release, new phones and tablets are expected to be added to the list of ‘devices to receive Android 12L‘. One of the important points to be wondered; Whether the Samsung Galaxy Tab series will receive the update. At this point, there was no explanation from Google or Samsung.
The Galaxy Tab S8 series, which the South Korean company will launch next year, can come out of the box with Android 12L. The fact that the Tab S8 Ultra will come with a 14.6-inch screen that will almost compete with computers supports this possibility. However, Samsung can break all expectations and continue on its way with normal Android as usual.
So, what do you think about the Android 12L project? Do you think Google will succeed in creating a rival to iPadOS? You can share your ideas in the comments.
