 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.

 The  situation is similar with the one-handed mode or app pairs, which could also move into Android 12. So the latest version of Android is, in many ways, homework that Google has accumulated over the years and is now doing.
