There’s a simple strategy to lend credence to that October 4th date: evaluate the discharge dates of Android 11 and Android 10 to what the doc incorporates. The secure model of Android 10 was launched out of beta on September third, 2019, identical to the doc lists. September eighth, 2020, the day Google says was the AOSP launch of Android 11, was additionally the identical day the software program was launched to the general public. That’s not laborious affirmation, however it does make October 4th, 2021 appear much more possible as an Android 12 launch date.
Concentrating on some date in October would additionally put Android 12 within the basic ballpark of when Google is anticipated to lastly announce (as in cease teasing and truly element) the Pixel 6. Rumors spun out of Google’s personal advertising and marketing goal October nineteenth for the launch of Google’s flagship. Beginning the rollout of Android 12 a few weeks earlier than definitely looks as if a risk.
