The official release date for Android 12 is currently unknown. However, Google has a rotating schedule.
The program shows that we can see the launch of Android 12 in or after August this year.
There will be at least three preliminary tests for developers and four betas before that.
We have now officially launched the first days of Android 12. However, don’t be too happy: we are still months away from the app being stable enough for consumers to take it.

In the meantime, we can expect at least three developers previews for Android 12. After that, we can expect at least four beta releases. The release date of Android 12 should be simple enough to get confirmation about the launch of that fourth beta.
On record, last year in the launch of Android 11, Google had its first beta in June and the last launch in early September. It is very likely that we will see a very similar program this year.
In the meantime, check what we know so far in the next section.
Google plans to launch monthly updates for Android 12. According to the latest official information, we can expect developer previews each month from now until April 2021. From May, we will see the beta launch. The beta versions of the software will be suitable for consumer use (although not something you would like to use as a daily driver).
After the launch of the four beta, the release date for Android 12 will be easier to slow down. Depending on the progress of the development, it may be in mid or late August. It could also be in early September. However, the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic has caused tremendous damage throughout the industry, so it is important to lower your expectations.
So far, this is the official presentation:
We will update this document with official releases as we go! In the meantime, what do you hope to see from Android 12? Let us know in the comments.
