Scheduled to be deployed in the fall, Android 12 is being revealed little by little, thanks to a few first leaks noted by the American media. This is a new interface, the ability to download applications outside of the Google Play Store, a one-hand navigation mode and a special configuration dedicated to players.
Every year, the highlights of the latest version of Android are usually presented in the spring at the Google I / O conference. Canceled last year due to the global pandemic, it is not yet known if it will take place this year. and in what form. In the absence of official announcements, the specialized press closely examines the first leaks of the system which are spotted on various social networks.
The main change in Android 12 will be visual because the interface will be redesigned, streamlined, offering the possibility of adapting the colors of certain elements to those of the background of its screen. Note that the new color indicators should let users know in real time when the microphone and / or camera is in use by a running application. Android 12 is also configured to allow installation of apps through third-party stores. As for system updates, they should now be able to be done directly from Google Play and no longer from a dedicated section in the smartphone settings.
Another expected novelty is the arrival of a one-handed mode, which would allow the user to reduce the size of the screen to the right or the left by around 40% and thus be able to momentarily manipulate his smartphone. one hand. This is especially useful for those who have a large screen size, for example over 6 inches. This is a feature that already exists for some manufacturers through multiple overlays. However, it could be offered natively for the first time on Android 12 and thus work on all compatible smartphones.
Finally, another rumor suggests that Android 12 could inaugurate a mode specially dedicated to gaming. This means that as soon as a game is launched, the smartphone automatically switches to a fully personalized configuration, adapting the refresh rate and the brightness of the screen, as well as activating the “do not disturb” mode.
