Android 12 Dessert Based Name Might be Snow Cone
Just like every other year, Google is releasing Android 12 for its millions of users around the globe with newer and more efficient features. There is not too much information available yet on the subject.
But a few rumors and some substantiated data have been circulating around on different platforms calling for our attention after the report published by XDA developers. Google has not yet shared anything regarding this officially.
In a few days, the developer beta release will be ready for testing for selected devices. In its first go, Pixel and its partner devices are likely to be benefited.
This definitely is not good news as the number of devices for the preview has been decreased evidently. But the devices gaining access to the fuller version are anticipated to be more and higher than the devices we used to have before.
Following the tentative timeline that it normally does every year, in May 2021, the users will probably be able to test its new features. The endmost version will be accessible to all the consumers by the end of August or the beginning of September as is being anticipated from the progress of its last update.
Continuing its professional way of characterizing its versions through numbers instead of desserts as it did for a long time, Google did announce last year in its blog post that the next version will also be called Android 12. However, it has been thought that there still continues the fashion of associating each version with some dessert internally even though if the giant announced to revoke its practice with the release of Android 10. Android 11, for example, was seemingly called Red Velvet Cake of which some of you might not even have any idea.
Similarly, android 12 may be called Snow Cone as its source code has multiple references to “sc” which is thought to be its abbreviation. The assumption is made on the basis of the source code for the android 11 that had references to “rvc”.
One of the many features that users will enjoy in this new release is its smarter auto-rotation. The screen of the phone will rotate corresponding to the position of the user. Your front camera will be able to sense which way your head is facing the screen of your phone to circumvent any efforts of doing it on your own.
It is also being hoped that android 12 would introduce a new design for widgets and notifications on the screen. This would modernize the already modern look of your phone.
In the blog post published last year, Google also announced that its users will be able to access third-party app stores in the next release of android as well with privacy measures in place. In other important new features, there will be the introduction of a one-handed mode, a new game manager services, and a restricted networking mode—a feature which will be more helpful to protect the privacy of users as unwanted apps would not be able to access and breach your data.
