Samsung users are no doubt looking forward to the release of Android 12, the major update to the mobile operating system. But when will the new Android version be released?
Samsung Android 12 update coming in December
It seems that Samsung users won’t have to wait very long for an Android 12 update, according to a new rumor. Website TizenHelp reports that Samsung wants to start rolling out Android 12 before the end of 2021. The source says that the company will release the update “at the latest in December”, but there is no specific release date.
The Android 12 update will not appear for all Samsung devices at the same time. The South Korean manufacturer always updates its most expensive and latest smartphones the fastest. We therefore expect the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra to be the first Samsung phones that will soon run on Android 12. Other devices will follow after that.
It would not be very surprising if the first Samsung updates are made available in December. The company rolled out the first Android 11 updates for the Galaxy S20 smartphones last year in the same month. So it could very well be that Samsung keeps the same planning, although the company has not yet commented on this.
Android 12 and Samsung
Android 12 is a major update with one very important innovation: the Material You design. The operating system gets a completely new look and especially looks a bit more playful, because everything is more colorful. Android 12 looks at the wallpaper you set and adjusts the colors and accents of the software based on that. This makes Android look slightly different on everyone.
Before Samsung releases Android 12, the company will first come up with a major event. Next Wednesday (October 20) ‘Unpacked 2021 Part 2’ will take place, where a new high-end smartphone may be announced. This is probably the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, a cheaper version of the S21. The phone can be ordered immediately after the announcement, after which the release will take place on October 29.
