The finished version of the new operating system is expected in September. Last week, however, Google released the first developer preview of Android 12. Hidden deep in the source code, more and more features are emerging that have not yet been officially announced.

Google is doing homework
Manufacturers of Android smartphones have been offering extended theming functions for a long time, above all Xiaomi, Huawei and Samsung.
