The news has arrived but it leaves everyone with a bitter taste in their mouth as the new operating system update published as part of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) will arrive on smartphones only at a later time.
On the Google blog on September 4th we read:
“Today we’re pushing the source to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and officially releasing the latest version of Android. Keep an eye out for Android 12 coming to a device near you starting with Pixel in the next few weeks and Samsung Galaxy, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Tecno, Vivo, and Xiaomi devices later this year“.
It took over 225,000 users, who tried the beta over the past few months, managed to generate over 50,000 bug reports and help make Android 12 what it is today.
“ More than 225,000 of you tested our early releases on Pixel and devices from our partners, and you sent us nearly 50,000 issue reports to help improve the quality of the release. We also appreciate the many articles, discussions, surveys, and in-person meetings where you voiced your thoughts, as well as the work you’ve done to make your apps compatible in time for today’s release. Your support and contributions are what make Android such a great platform for everyone."
As we already anticipated with the release of the first beta, the new graphics and all new look is certainly a great turning point for the cute little robot.
The new design is certainly the aspect that strikes more immediately, less rigid trying to mix minimalism and flat graphics of the Material Design with new emotional sensations and many many customizations, to adapt everything to the user.
One of the main points of Android 12 is certainly what concerns the innovations introduced by the new Privacy Dashboard, which clearly and clearly indicates the apps that have access to the microphone, the position and all the data sensitive.
When the camera and microphone are in use there will be indicators to signal this, making it easy for the user to realize everything that is happening on his device and with the possibility of revoking access.
