It has been officially launched a few days ago Android 13, the latest version of the green robot that we will see installed on the next Android smartphones. The update brings with it several more or less impactful innovations (have you seen them all?), but as usual it will still take some time before it becomes the market standard. Although the Android team has worked to make updates more widespread and rapid, the fragmentation of android still remains a problem that afflicts many devices in circulation.

Many smartphone owners are still waiting for the arrival of Android 12

Taking the data reported by Google itself through the Android Studio platform, what we discover is that in August 2022 the spread of Android 12 amounts to only the 13,3%. This means that poco More than a tenth of all Android smartphones in the world have received the latest Android update, while all the others are stuck at previous versions. At present, the previous version of the mobile OS is the most used one ever, that is Android 11 al 27%. Going down there is 22,3% of the even previous Android 10; even Android 9 Pie fares better than Android 12, reaching 14,5%, and Android 8 Oreo also doesn't go that far with 10,9%.

Summing up in a nutshell, 86% of Android smartphones are not updated to the latest version, if we exclude for obvious reasons Android 13. The situation becomes even more marked if we also consider, of the smartphones present in the globe, not to go beyond Android 7 Nougat (dating back to 2016) is 11,8%, a percentage not so far from the 13,3% of Android 12.

Obviously these are data to be interpreted and not to be taken as absolute, for example because more and more people are used to keep their smartphone longer than in the past, and this leads to having smartphones around years old and stuck in past versions of Android.
