Google has been testing Android 12 for quite a long time now. The OS has finally reached platform stability with six developer previews and eight beta updates since the official Android 12 announcement.
However, the release date of the stable update was unknown until XDA editor-in-chief Mishaal Rahman Tweeted this.
The stable Android 12 update might hit all the supported Pixel devices on October 4th. As for the non-Pixel devices, we’ve curated lists of the most popular OEMs and when they might push the update to their smartphones. (Spoiler: Not anytime soon).
OPPO recently announced in a Weibo post that ColorOS 12 would be released in September, but that might not happen as the stable Android 12 is releasing on October 4th. The Weibo post has also been deleted.
Still, considering that some manufacturers still haven’t pushed the Android 11 update to a significant number of devices, don’t expect Android 12 to hit your device anytime soon, even if it’s fairly new.
