Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Fold or other folding phones should be able to benefit from a’second’ version of Android 12 called Android 12.1 that is now in beta.
Android 12 is almost here, and there is already a lot of conjecture about what will be available at the time of its release. That there is already talk of an early release of Android 12.1, as if version 12 is already in desperate need of improvement, seems a little weird.
Android 12.1 is the latest version of the operating system.
It is, however, a different storey. Android 12.1, which is still officially a code name, is a version of Android that is intended to run in parallel with Android 12. That will be a limited-edition model available only to owners of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and/or similar foldable smartphones.
Smartphone that can be folded
Because not only is the Galaxy Fold better supported by having a different Android, but it is also possible that a foldable Pixel may arrive on the market. As a result, it is believed that the release of both the operating system and the phone will take place at the same time. In any case, the Google foldable phone is now available, though it will be compatible with a variety of different devices in the future.
Features XDA Developers was already granted permission to work with an early version of Android 12.1 in order to investigate some issues. According to initial reports, the specific capabilities of the Android version for foldable phones are mostly connected to improved split-screen functionality on the large screen. In particular, improved separation of the interface between the two portions of the screen should be implemented.
As a result, it is unclear when Android 12.1 will become available. Keep an eye out for more information!
