- The Android 12 stable launch just hit the Android Open-Source Project (AOSP).
- This is a significant milestone in the release cycle.
- However, it will be at least days or even weeks before we see it arrive on phones.
Last year, Google pushed out the Android 11 stable release at the beginning of September. However, Android 11 wasn’t too drastically different from Android 10 (or Android 9 Pie, for that matter). As such, it was relatively easy for Google to stick to its proposed release schedule.
However, with Android 12, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Since the newest version of Android is very different from other versions, it’s no surprise that Google is pushing the Android 12 stable launch out a lot later than last year.
