Install Redmi Note 7 Android 12.0 Firmware [Pixel 5 Developer Preview Port, Guide]

We all know that Google launches new Android system releases annually during the month of September, and this of course comes after several releases aimed at developers, and then after beta versions, almost monthly since the announcement of the first developer version until the last stable version. Of course, the Android 12 developer update has been available for most Android phones (which support Project Treble) since mid-February, which was expected to come with several drastic changes compared to the previous Android 11.

And now, we have seen some leaks that appeared about the upcoming system before even the launch of the second developer version (Android 12 DP2), which showed that the system will come with a very huge virtual change from the usual shape of Android, such as circular designs. Of course, you will not be able now to build any opinion on what the system will look like in its stable form after several months, but we now at least have an idea of ​​what will be the Android 12.

Of course, this does not in any way mean that Android 12 (the second developer preview) will be boring in any way, because you still get some cool things like automatically rotating the screen according to your viewing angle, the new gray Android 12 theme, game mode And its new control panel, the iPhone feature that allows you to click on the back of the phone to perform some tasks, move between the OS’s functions with gestures, a dedicated taskbar for tablets, and many other distinctive additions.

After all, perhaps one of the greatest things that happened to Android was Project Treble. In simple words, this project came as a restoration of the architecture or the way Android OS updates work. Basically, Google’s Project Triple has “separated” the Android operating system itself from OEMs custom interfaces, so that companies can now send new system updates to their smartphones without having to first update the UI to fit the new system as it was in previous versions.

In addition to the quick updates, this feature has also given developers new ways to be able to modify stock Android AOSP ROMs to work on other Android devices, without having to do the usual tweaks or port as they needed before.

Quickly, the idea of ​​updating your phone to the new system, even if it was officially, became much easier and faster. So, yes, now we have what is known as GSI, which is an abbreviation of the word Generic System Images, meaning that they are versions of the Android OS that support flashing on all phones as long as they come with Android 8.1.0 or higher out of the box.
