We still have a week or two to wait for the latest Android version, the first developer preview and betas of the 12th major release – but XDA developers have already been waiting for the second half of February. Acquired Some system screenshots are under development. Although the paper was unable to confirm the authenticity of the images by one hundred percent, it found several evidence among the leaked documents that they were actual screenshots. The published images show a comprehensive redesign of the user interface, as well as the arrival of some new features.
Based on the information leaked, in Android 12, Google is trying to make the user interface more clear, starting with the notification panel, which by default displays only four shortcut buttons instead of six, and below it is divided into two chats and more. Notifications from other sources in the queue. The panel is also no longer transparent, and the notification cards have been given more rounded corners.
Most importantly, the privacy flag icons also appear in the upper-right corner to be instantly visible, for example, when an app uses a microphone or camera. By clicking on these icons, you can get more detailed information about exactly which apps are included and whether they are currently actively collecting information through sensors or have recently used them.
Google will also, if you verify the images you see, are really original, and repaint your privacy settings. By default, only five items will appear in the menu, these are the keys to access camera, microphone, and device location, and the app’s permission manager menu item – the fifth option leads to more detailed settings. To make it easier to turn off the sensors as much as possible, the update is very focused on all sensors, and all sensors can be turned off with a button in the quick settings.
We can also anticipate innovations in the field of tools, based on the screenshots, the search giant will introduce several new modules that can be used to track missed calls or chat with specific contacts on the home screen. By the way, the latter widgets look somewhat similar to the solution that Apple recently introduced on iOS. Although this is informally confirmed information after the launch of the first developer version of Android 11 in the second half of February of last year, we probably won’t have to wait long to see the major changes in the twelfth version of the system.
