Tips For Choosing A Smartphone
Since 2017, Google has started releasing a light version of Android for low-cost smartphones with weak technical characteristics. This version (Android Go Edition) works quickly due to the reduced number of functions and software optimization. Application developers can release separate versions for the Android Go Edition to ensure a smoother experience. As a result, according to Google, the number of daily active users of Android Go has already reached 200 million.
The new processor, in comparison with the Snapdragon 888, received 20% higher performance and reduced power consumption by 30%. And all thanks to the 4-nanometer process technology and the latest ARMv9 architecture. In 2022, this 8-core chipset will be installed in most flagship smartphones and tablets.
A week after the announcement of the new Pixel 6\6 Pro smartphones, Google announced a new version Android 12L. It is being developed for devices with large screens, or for smartphones and tablets with folding screens. According to rumors, Google is preparing a new Pixel Fold smartphone next year. Let’s figure out what Android 12L is.
Yesterday Google announced the new Google Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 6 smartphones. These devices run Android 12 out of the box. This means that the final and stable version of Android 12 has passed the release. Pixel smartphones starting with the 3 and 3 XL models will now receive an «over the air» (OTA) upgrade to this new version.
Google is getting closer and closer to the final launch of Android 12. This is evidenced by the recent release of the latest beta version under the number SPB5.210812.002. It can be installed on any Google Pixel smartphone starting from the third version. By the way, Google added support for the recently announced Pixel 5a.
In early August, Google released the fourth beta version of Android 12. Later, another version of Android 12 Beta 4.1 appeared, which fixed the cyclic reboots of the device. Meanwhile, Samsung, Xiaomi and Nokia have already prepared Android 12 beta testing programs for their smartphones.
