Google’s anticipated Android 12 may debut on Pixel phones as early as October 4.
While Android may be best known for its tight integration with Google’s ecosystem, the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) is the open source Android foundation that Google uses for its purposes. The company often releases the latest AOSP in conjunction with releasing the mainstream version that makes its way onto the majority of Android devices.
According to XDA’s Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman, Google plans to release the AOSP on October 4. If the company’s plan holds true, Pixel users may get access the same day, with other companies rolling the update out sometime later.
