Android 12 is here: Google distributes the final update for Pixel smartphones

This approach is new. Google has completed Android 12, but has not released the final update for Pixel smartphones directly. Instead, they waited for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to be introduced and the update has now been released.

Android 12: update for pixel phones is here

Update from October 19, 2021: Google has completed the Android 12 update for its Pixel smartphones and has now officially released it. As of the Pixel 3, the final version of Android 12 can now be downloaded and installed as an update. Samsung, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Tecno, Vivo and Xiaomi smartphones are to follow later in the year.

Original article:

I was actually looking forward to this day today. Not only is Windows 11 there and can already be installed, but Android 12 should also appear today according to the schedule. It does - at least in part. So far it has always been the case that Google publishes a final version of Android and offers it for download directly for its Pixel smartphones. Today Android 12 was released - but only in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) . The updates for Pixel smartphones should appear in a few weeks (source: Google).

On the one hand, this approach is disappointing, because I cannot bring my Pixel 5 to the final state and finally get rid of the small bugs of the beta version, on the other hand, the manufacturers can now go into the final stage with their beta tests . Various manufacturers such as OnePlus, Oppo and Co. are now starting tests based on the final Android 12 version. Samsung should also integrate these soon. The gap between the rollout of Android 12 on pixel smartphones and for other manufacturers should be significantly smaller this year. At the end of the year, the updates should appear from third-party manufacturers, according to Google.

We show you in the video what changes with Android 12:

Android 12 held back for Pixel 6 launch?

According to its own information, Google wants to implement subtleties in the pixel features before the final update to Android 12 appears in a few weeks for its own smartphones. This must have happened no later than the launch of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro at the end of October . So do we have to be prepared for Android updates to appear later on Google smartphones because Google is changing the Pixel Launcher so much? We don't want to hope so, because that would remove a big selling point. Pixel owners want their Android updates immediately and without waiting.
