Thanks to the colleagues from Android Authority, and with Android 12 already quite mature, we can put the main mobile manufacturers to shame… Who updated first? Who was the last?
Time flies very quickly in this industry, and with six months on the market, it seems Android 12 is already mature waiting for its relief, with the Android 12L midstream version in the bedroom, just introduced on March 8, and Android 13 taking shape in the Mountain View shaker.
So it’s time to look back, review and analyze the deployment of an Android 12 which continues to struggle with fragmentation, and by the way, we’re going to have to thank our colleagues at Android Authority for repeating once again its impressive study of updates by manufacturers to break down who came first and who we have to paint for being slower in 2022.
The truth is that we are talking about very important information, especially for users who they are still unsure which manufacturer to opt for outside the iPhone world when buying a smartphone, offering in this case details that take into account both user experience and update maintenance and support of the manufacturer, which for many is vital in the decision.
How was the study carried out? Well, it’s very simple, because our colleagues at Android Authority took the side October 4, 2021 as the official Android 12 release date, register from here the first smartphone updated by each manufacturer and the term which took to release Android 12 with its customization, creating a ‘Top 10’ with prizes and sticks according to the merits of each.
As is evident, the Pixel has been removed from the equation made by Googlesince these mobiles are used as Development Phones during development and even allow new versions of Android to be already installed on beta and from the first moment, therefore it would make no sense to analyze anything with them in between and showing “0 days” term.
The smartphones presented are the first that each manufacturer has updatedalways talk about stable versions of android 12 whether or not they are customized by the manufacturer, although most are obviously customized with proprietary interfaces and a differential experience.
Here is the detail… Not to be missed!
The dates and deadlines for updating the main manufacturers: who updates first?
The South Korean giant confirms that its Galaxy devices are the best option away from the Pixel made by Google to always be up to date. In fact, its first smartphones with Android 12 were the Galaxy S21with a stable release date of November 15, 2021 after only 41 days of waiting of the official presentation of Android 12.
Another of those who confirm its good time is OPPO, with stable Android 12 for its OPPO Find X3 Pro released on December 1, 2021 after 57 working days of development.
3. A Plus
In the case of OnePlus, its third step on the podium is signed by the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Prowhich received Android 12 on December 7, 2021 with 63 days in his backpack.
HMD Global is the owner of the mythical firm Nokia, and with one of the best support services on the platform, always with an Android quite close to the PureGoogleyou can brag about having updated nokia x20 on December 16, 2021, with only 70 days of waiting since its launch in Mountain View.
Vivo takes fifth place, after updating the vivo X60 and X60 Pro on December 22, 2021, at the same time as the Christmas Lottery, with 76 day warrant.
Curious that Sony Mobile, despite the terrible figures of its Xperia division and the worst sales in its history, continues to surpass giants like Xiaomi or Motorola, since Sony Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III received Android 12 on January 10, 2022, with 96 working days in the Xperia user interface.
Xiaomi effectively follows Sony, in its case with the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra as protagonists updating to Android 12 on January 18, 2022, signing 104 days elapsed since the official release of the operating system.
Once under the Google umbrella, Motorola had some of the best update support around, although now with Lenovo at the helm it has to settle for eighth place, having updated the Moto G Pro on February 9, 2022 after 125 days standby… We are already more than four months away!
Already out of the mobile market, LG updated the Velvet a few weeks ago, on March 22, 2022, with 162 day margin although having kept its promises to users.
Finally, the closure of ‘Top 10’we find the fastest growing manufacturer in the entire history of the industry, which with a catalog flooded with models has waited to move on to the Realme GT Master Edition to March 28, with 168 day term elapsed.
And here it is the ‘Top ten’ of Android manufacturers in 2022each with their trophies and genes in the air, although it should be noted that we could also have commented on other manufacturers, since Honor arrived late to the party after her divorce from Huawei and it is still working on its Magic UI 6.0 interface with the base of Android 12, which will be ready throughout the second quarter of this year.
Regarding the minority manufacturersthe truth is that they are quite unpredictable in terms of supporting and updating their devices, so if you have a smartphone from companies that are not on the list, the ideal is that you look directly on the sites of the said manufacturers or consult their technical support services.
And finally, as we always keep all the basic information up to date, we leave you here the 264 mobiles from different manufacturers who have confirmed their update to Android 12 With the roadmapsdates and times provided in each case… Let’s see if you can find yours there!
