The protagonist of the Google I / O 2021 was without a doubt the announcement di Android 12 and among the early adopters we also find Xiaomi. Together with OnePlus, OPPO, Realme, iQOO, ASUS e TCL, Lei Jun's company has started its Beta Testing program in order to pave the way for stable release. It will take some time before Google's major update will appear on the first smartphones, starting with the Google Pixel family in autumn 2021. As for the Xiaomi catalog, we will talk about it again between 2021 and 2022, when the new version of the Big G's green robot will expand.

Android 12 is preparing to land on Xiaomi smartphones: here's what we know

What's new in Android 12

The main novelty of Android 12, but which is not said we will see on Xiaomi smartphones, is called Material you. Google's new aesthetic language will replace the current Material Design, giving greater wealth in terms of customization. With the update will come a new color management, being able to color the entire UI based on the colors of the backgrounds used. Based on the image chosen, the user can make all the elements of the interface adapt: ​​icons, widgets, notifications, menus and so on.

Aesthetic changes that also include new widgets and animations, aiming to have greater visual fluidity and coherence. The lock screen is also modified, with a new widget for the clock, with changes also for notifications and Quick Settings. However, when it comes to changes to the look of Android, it remains to be seen whether Xiaomi will do the same, since the graphics depend on MIUI.

With Android 12, Google has decided to improve privacy and security, starting with the implementation of the Privacy Dashboard. From here it will be possible to check the management of permissions by the installed apps, thus being able to understand what data they get their hands on. But above all a microphone and camera indicator: when either of them are used, an icon will appear at the top of the screen. In addition, it will be possible to use the disguised geolocation, a feature that is actually already present in MIUI.

Android 12 arm in arm with MIUI 13?

It is not yet known whether the update to Android 12 by Xiaomi will coincide with the release of MIUI 13. Apart from the hoaxes appeared on the net, we do not yet know when the major update of MIUI will start. Without considering that the release of MIUI 12.5 has the ordinary cadence is interrupted, as an interim update was announced for the first time. It is however plausible that the MIUI 13 you arrive in early months of 2022, therefore this possibility cannot be excluded.

When will Android 12 arrive?

An official date is still missing, but usually the release of Android 12 by Google starts with the announcement of the Pixel family. Probably the series too Google Pixel 6 will arrive in September / October 2021, so we expect that to be the period for the first roll-out. But remember that other manufacturers are almost never that responsive and it is very likely that you will have to wait until Q1 2022 to watch the very first updates.

Which Xiaomi will update to Android 12?

There are still several months before the official release of Android 12 to the public and for this reason there is no official roadmap yet. I want to emphasize this, because I would not want you to take this list that I am about to give you as certain and then maybe complain about it. However, know that I have drawn it on the basis of the update policy that Xiaomi is used to keeping. Obviously it will update it over time, when other models will be announced but above all when Xiaomi will pronounce on it.

Before leaving you to the list, I remind you that owners of some Xiaomi models can already try Android 12 Beta: find all the details in this article.
