It’s been a big couple of weeks for Android fans. First came the leaks. Then Google officially made its Android 12 developer preview available, allowing curious folks to dig in and see what the company has actually been working on. The past couple of days have brought many discoveries of tweaks and features that Android 12 will offer, including some hints at what UI changes may be on the way.
First up: stacked widgets, similar to iOS. Mishaal Rahman identified the “expanded smart space” feature, which appears to let users scroll between widgets occupying the same space on the home screen. It’s similar to the Smart Stacks feature introduced in iOS 14, which allows you to “stack” widgets of the same size and scroll between them.
This week the first release of Android 12 is rumored to take place. This first release is expected to be called the Android 12 Developer Preview. The first Android 12 Developer Preview release will likely be relegated to Google Pixel smartphones of several sorts.

The post Android 12 “Snow Cone” is adding one-handed mode and long-screenshot feature appeared first on Gizchina.com.
People love big phones, and companies oblige that demand by releasing devices with monster screens. Heck, even the “mid-sized” iPhone 12 has a 6.1-inch screen. Phones with big displays give you more screen estate to view content bigly, stack two apps in the splitscreen mode, and pack more icons on a page. But sometimes it’s really hard to reach across the screen with one hand.

It seems that the next version of Android will be its biggest one yet. An earlier leak showed how Android 12 will make some rather substantial changes to the notification panel and Quick Settings tiles but that was apparently just the tip of the iceberg. The rest of that iceberg is slowly but surely getting exposed, painting a picture of … Continue reading

We’re eagerly awaiting to hear official news about Android 12, Google’s next major update to its mobile operating system, and we might have gotten an early look at some big UI changes just last week, thanks to XDA Developers. But now, thanks again to XDA Developers, we might know something even more important: Android 12’s dessert name.
For years, Android releases were also identified with dessert names, and each year’s dessert started with the next sequential letter in the alphabet. Google deserted the dessert names in favor of numerals with Android 10, but the company reportedly still uses dessert names internally. Android 11’s dessert name was apparently Red Velvet Cake, for example. Android 12’s name? XDA Developers says that it’s...

A YouTuber has posted a video featuring what he claims are two prototype Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra devices, suggesting the phone might have an unusual feature: a 1-inch rear-facing screen right next to the cameras. The video shows this small screen displaying what looks like an image of the phone’s home screen, only... you know, microscopic. A more practical application might be for selfies using the rear-facing camera.
The video, since taken down, comes from a little-known Filipino vlogger who goes by Tech Buff PH. XDA-Developers says the device model number checks out, and certain details align with previous leaks. Other details from this alleged leak include 67W fast wireless charging, a 6.8-inch curved OLED with an adaptive refresh rate up...

Google released the first developer preview of Android 11 in February 2020. So, we might not be far off from seeing the first glimpse of Android 12. While there’s no official announcement from the company, folks from XDA Developers have published a bunch of screenshots that suggest upcoming changes to Google’s new Android version. There are a lot of new things to notice such as redesigned widgets, but Android 12’s possible privacy settings caught my eye. The Privacy section might allow you to disable the camera and microphone through a toggle. XDA also noted that if you enable developer settings, you… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Android
Android 12 rumored UI and features. | Image: XDA-Developers
A series of leaked images may offer a first look at Google’s Android 12 update. XDA-Developers has published screenshots from what is said to be from an “early draft” of documents Google distributes to Android partners. The screenshots, which XDA-Developers says haven’t been fully confirmed, include what appears to be new UI changes, alongside a new privacy indicator and conversation widget.
If accurate, the UI changes include an emphasis on rounded corners, with a reduction in the number of Quick Settings available from the unexpanded notification panel. Google also appears to be using a beige color scheme, which could be part of the rumored new native theme system for Android 12.
