Google has announced which smartphones will be able to take part in the beta testing of the Android 12L operating system.
Recall that Google introduced Android 12L at the end of October and released a preliminary version for developers. The new version of the OS is aimed at devices with large screens – foldable smartphones, tablets and laptops based on Chrome OS.
Nevertheless, users of ordinary smartphones will also be able to join it – without a folding screen, albeit a little later. At the time of the announcement, it was unclear which models from the Pixel branded lineup would be eligible to participate. A particularly big question was the Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL, which had already come to the end of their life cycle in October.
Now Google has named the exact list of models that will be able to receive the Android 12L beta:
- Pixel 6 Pro
- Pixel 6
- Pixel 5a with 5G
- Pixel 5
- Pixel 4a (5G)
- Pixel 4a
- Pixel 4
- Pixel 3a XL
- Pixel 3a
And then, of course, they’ll get the stable version of Android 12L when it’s ready. Beta testing is due to begin in December, with a final release scheduled for the first quarter of 2022.

Japanese Sony smartphones will become a little Chinese? The company is thinking about transferring its devices to the Flyme OS shell
Sony does not leave the idea of using Meizu’s Flyme OS shell in its smartphones.
At the moment, some devices of the Japanese giant in China are shipped out of the box with a number of applications and widgets from Flyme OS, but the source says that Sony is thinking about fully using the shell in their devices.
This is hinted at by a new survey conducted by Sony among users of Xperia smartphones. One of the questions just concerned the attitude of users to the possible integration of Flyme OS.
Recall that Sony became interested in the Meizu shell last year, signing relevant agreements with the company. So far, this initiative is limited to China, but it is not a fact that in the end Flyme OS will not become the main shell for global Xperia models.
