Android 12L is not meant for all smartphones as of now. The version is actually a “feature drop for Android 12,” which will have a stable release in Q1 2022. The version is specially crafted for devices with large screens like foldable smartphones, tablets, and Chromebooks. Also, it does bring improvements for smartphones.
Android 12L Beta 1 arrives with the December 2021 security patch via version S2B1.211112.006. Those who own Pixel 3a (XL) or later devices are eligible to flash the version. Precisely, the list of devices includes Pixel 3a (XL), Pixel 4 (XL), Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, and Pixel 6 Pro. Users who have enrolled in the Android Beta program will receive the initial beta-quality as a simple OTA update.
To mention, Lenovo Tab P12 Pro joined the Android 12L Developer program last week and Beta 1 will be available in the coming weeks.
In a nutshell, we can say that Android 12L is a refinement over Android 12 to make it more usable on large screens. Along with several UI refreshments, it brings new APIs, tools, and guidance to help developers optimize their apps. You can read all of the Android 12L features by tapping on the button below.
