Back in February 2021, Google announced the twelfth major generation of its mobile operating system, Android 12. Following this, the company had released the Developer Preview of Android 12, which lets Google Pixel smartphone users understand and develop the applications ecosystem.
Following its schedule, the search engine giant delivered three Developer Preview updates and could kick off the first public beta of the Android 12 anytime. Moreover, the company is going to hold Google I/O, which is an annual developer conference, where Google will introduce its new innovations.
Ahead of everything, iQOO opened the Android 12 beta recruitment for the iQOO 7 smartphone users in China. Surprisingly, the Chinese phone maker has officially made this announcement through its official Weibo account. And finally, iQOO won the race in terms of providing the Android 12 version to its consumers ahead of every other OEM.
Usually, the phone makers begin the development of their custom software systems after the public beta or stable release, but iQOO has broken all the previous records when it comes to Android 12-based custom skin development. Meanwhile, there’s no sign from Samsung or others regarding their plans for the Android 12 update rollout.
Like the previous year, Google is expected to launch the Android 12 operating system in September 2021 to the eligible Pixel smartphones. Following this, Samsung will also recruit the developers to develop the One UI 4.0, the next generation of One UI, somewhere in late September while the public beta could begin in October.
