Android 12 Developer Preview is coming up. We not only get to time of the year where Google generally distributes the first version of its new system to developers, but also leaks are increasing. Plus new action center widgets and settings we have already talked about, additional changes have been rumored.
According to XDA DevelopersAndroid 12 should have a mode that makes it easy to use large smartphones with one hand. Most manufacturers didn’t wait for Google to offer this mode. Samsung, for example, has long made it possible to reduce the entire interface to one corner of the screen to make it more accessible to one hand. It is a priori this method that must follow the standard mode of Android 12.
Picture-in-picture mode, which iPhone users discovered with iOS 14 But that has been around for a while on Android smartphones, it should be improved. Always after XDA, it will be possible to change the size of the PiP thumbnails and hide them temporarily by dragging them to the side of the screen (two possibilities are already present on the iPhone).
Among other notable novelties, there should be the introduction of a “game mode” that will allow you to change several settings at the same time (do not disturb mode, automatic rotation …) to be able to play without distractions. On the other hand, this is something that many manufacturers are already offering, but it would be a matter of standardizing this type of fashion and generalizing it.
Android 12 could also manage chips natively ultra broadband, improve their split screen mode which allows you to display two apps at the same time or even offer an automatic rotation “Intelligent”, not really knowing what that means at the moment. Google should soon officially reveal some of the content of this important update.
