Samsung, Lenovo, and Microsoft smartphones will all receive Android 12L
Samsung, Lenovo, and Microsoft have become the first device manufacturers to commit to shipping Android 12L, a new version of Android optimized for tablets and foldable devices. Andrei Popescu, Google’s vice president of engineering for Android, confirmed the development in a blog post, stating that 12L would be available on smartphones from the three businesses later this year.
Lenovo’s announcement is unsurprising, given that its P12 Pro tablet is already capable of running a test version of Android 12L. It’s unclear which devices from the other two firms will receive the update – probably Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2, but any number of Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets or Z Fold phones could be affected.
