We list the phones where you can download Android 12 and enjoy the new features of the operating system. The new OS was announced during the last quarter of 2020, but from the beginning, it was said the date when it was going to come out. However, during this fourth month of 2021, Android 12 is already a reality, so there is an exclusive and lucky group of phones that can already install it.
A website reveals the exclusive list of cell phones that can already access Android 12. But it also makes a series of recommendations, since it is not the official version that the vast majority will be able to enjoy without problems. That is, Android 12 arrives in its beta version. Yes, the one that is usually released and usually has some details to be polished before finally making the commercial launch.
Therefore, it is important to be aware that those who access this version, run the risk of suffering some inconveniences. The idea is to report them through the official channels. Google will correct them to have the product ready and launch it definitively in the second half of 2021.
In fact, according to the aforementioned portal, Google recommends this update only to developers and experts. The intention is that in case of any problem they know how to return to the previous version of Android and solve the use of the cell phone in a few minutes.

What’s new in Android 12?
Firstly, it highlights the improvement in the ‘One Hand Mode’. This is a feature that had previously been seen in different brands of cell phone manufacturers. But it had never been there as a natural application of the Android operating system. So, this could change with the launch of the new program.
The ‘One Hand Mode’ is nothing more than the reduction of the screen components so that the handling becomes easier. This way, with the smaller screen you will be able to manipulate the device with one limb. One of the first to implement this section in software was Samsun. But who perfected it was Xiaomi with MIUI.
Another great feature highlighted by the aforementioned portal is the improvement in game mode. This feature allows you to configure notifications so that they do not appear while in the middle of a battle royale battle, for example. It also can turn off the development of the rest of the app. The purpose of the latter is to free up as much storage as possible so that the FPS runs more freely.
