The stable version of android 12 seems to be very close to release. Google docs indicate that the operating system source code will be published in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) on October 4.
The information was shared last Sunday (12) by Mishaal Rahman, editor-in-chief of XDA Developers. The expert also cites that the tentative launch date would have been mentioned by a partner brand of big tech.
In previous years, the release date of the source code on the AOSP coincided with the release of stable versions of Android for Google Pixel phones. Therefore, it is possible for the company to repeat the same strategy with: android 12 for 2021.
On the other hand, manufacturers like Samsung, Xiaomi and Motorola will only be able to implement their own interfaces after the release of the source code. After big tech passes the tests, the brands will make the software available to customers.
Finally, android 12‘s debut date on Pixel smartphones is subject to change. It is worth noting that Google has not officially announced the release of the stable version of the operating system.
Latest beta version of Android 12
Released on Sept 8, android 12 Beta 5 is the last test version of the operating system. In addition to bug fixes, the recent build introduced more programs and widgets with the Material You visual pattern.
According to the information, if everything goes correctly, this will be the version that should get the stable state. Apparently, Google will spend the next few weeks making the final adjustments before launch.
