Android 12L: Beta 2 available for select Google Pixel models
Here comes the beta 2 of Android 12L, which brings with it the correction of the bugs identified in the previous version of December. Beyond this, in fact, there does not seem to be any particular news announced by Google. But it doesn’t matter, because what will really interest users is the fact that the update is available for some of the latest Google Pixel models. In particular, it is about:
- Pixel 3a e 3a XL
- Pixel 4 e 4 XL
- Pixel 4a e 4a 5G
- Pixel 5 e Pixel 5a.
As you can see, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are missing, which have not even received the first beta that Google released in December 2021. Despite this, the tech giant has announced that soon the update will also be available for owners. of these models. Especially if we consider that times are rather tight, given that the tech giant should only present one more beta before officially releasing the new operating system.
In any case, soon Google could release the update for the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro, considered another big absentee along with the Pixel 6. After all, it should only be a matter of days. Apparently, in fact, Android 12L could officially arrive in March 2022. In the meantime, if you are one of the lucky ones, enjoy the Beta 2 version.
