The release of the new operating version will take place on October 4. This is reported by the publication XDA Developers.
As it became known to the sources of the publication, on October 4, Google will publish the source code of Android 12. According to media journalists, usually, the date of publication of the code coincides with the date of the release of the operating system on users ‘ smartphones. The code will be disclosed as part of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).
XDA Developers specialist Mishaal Rahman noticed that last year the publication of the Android 11 source year took place on September 8 — on the same day the OS became available to users. The same thing happened with Android 10 and Android 9.
According to Rahman, first of all, the operating system will be released for owners of Google Pixel 4 smartphones and other devices of the brand. Then Android 12 will appear on phones from other manufacturers. It can take from several weeks to several months to deploy the OS.
Google introduced Android 12 at the end of May. The OS has undergone a major redesign compared to the early operating systems of the family. Also, new privacy settings have been added to Android 12.
