It took longer to prepare Android 12 than many of its predecessors, but the release may be just around the corner. A source claims that Google plans to release an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) version of Android 12 on October 4. Since the company often releases polished public updates at the same time as the AOSP, this hints that Pixel smartphone owners could get the update as soon as that day.
If the timing coincides, it will also set expectations for the launch of the Pixel 6. Google can't ship its new phones without Android 12, so it's unlikely the company will officially unveil the Pixel 6 before that date. Most likely, the new handsets will arrive sometime in late October.
If you don't own a Google Pixel, the wait can be long. Sometimes for many months. Despite Google's efforts to push smartphone manufacturers to release updates in a short time frame, it is clear that the business model based on smartphone sales is interested in "aging" them quickly. Therefore, not every manufacturer is in a hurry to adapt a new version of the OS to its current product line, preferring to invest efforts in the development of future flagships.Source: MishaalRahman, engadget
