When will my phone get Android 12?

Google has launched the final Android 12 Beta, having steadily launched four previous betas at monthly intervals. 

It's the final step before next  official Android update, Android 12, which is going to bring with it a huge range of changes. You can see what's coming in Android 12 right here.

We'll be tracking updates across the whole of the Android universe, but we're not far out from final release day, so stay tuned, the official update could be here before you know it.

Android 12 for Pixel devices

Android 12 will be coming to Pixel devices first and you'll be able to get the Android 12 Beta right away if you want to try it out. The fifth and final beta was announced on 8 September, and we're expecting final software release shortly.

The following devices can use the Android 12 Beta, but note that this isn't final software and some features might not work on phones:

  • Pixel 3
  • Pixel 3 XL
  • Pixel 3a
  • Pixel 3a XL
  • Pixel 4
  • Pixel 4a (5G)
  • Pixel 4a
  • Pixel 5

We're expecting the Pixel 6 to launch with Android 12 out of the box. We'd expect the devices above to move to Android 12 at some point in September 2021, but this date hasn't been confirmed.

Android 12 for other Android devices

Other Android devices will also be able to access the Android 12 Beta and they are likely to be some of the first devices to update to Android 12 too.

Because Android 12 isn't final yet, we're not yet including all manufacturers - we will only add those manufacturers to the list if they make an announcement or if they are part of the beta. Most manufacturers will not announce update timelines until Android 12 is released and we'd expect that to be in the very near future.

Instead, we're focusing on those device that have access to the Android 12 Beta, or have been announced as partners on the beta.

NOTE: The Android 12 Beta is incomplete software and you use it at your own risk.

Asus has confirmed that it will be part of the Android 12 beta, but has told us on 27 May 2021 that: "upcoming Zenfone models will also be on the priority list for the Android 12 upgrade. More information will be announced at later date."
