If the company sticks with its past release timeline then we are soon going to see Google’s Android 12 launching this year amid this fall.
But before digging into that let’s just see a few betas, the first of which, again going on what happened for past versions, should appear within a few weeks.
While the users are eagerly waiting for all that to come out, some aspects of Android 12 have been leaked through screenshots. So brace yourselves, a redesign is coming alongside New features.
Google made a document summarizing the new look in the new version which is allegedly disclosed in a few screenshots. and Here are those leaked screenshots
To some extent, the looks are particularly reminding of iOS. Some of the novel privacy features as icons that show up in the top right that allow you to know that an app is using your camera or microphone.
If you tap those icons you’ll get a pop-up letting you know which app is still using what.
The new version has a quick way to disable the camera or mic with a single tap.
Google will also include and mandate camera and mic usage indicators and all Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) will have to include the feature once they release their updates to the new version of Andriod.
The Quick Settings icons either aren’t finalized or they’re going to change shape depending on the operation, which looks strange-does the Wi-Fi icon transform round when attached, alongside shifting colour? Perhaps!
However, this time around there are four Quick Settings icons that will make them easier and bigger to access but buries the others while leaving plenty of white (or rather, in this case, cream) space.
Background colors are likely to rely on the theme, and we’re not sure whether or not this is a new light theme.
With a new Conversations widget, new widgets are also on the way, that highlights new messages, activity statuses, and missed calls. This will only show, in its smallest size one item only once.
Other things expected to land in Android 12 are app pairs, the ‘double tap on the back of your phone’ gesture, sharing Wi-Fi passwords with nearby devices, an improved theming system, emoji updates decoupled from system updates, and an app hibernation feature.
