- Android 12 beta 1 build available for Pixel phones.
- The update is also available to ZenFone 8, Mi 11 series, OPPO Find X3 Pro, iQOO 7 Legend, Realme GT, Techno Camon 17, and others.
- Since the Android 12 is still in the beta stage, it might come with bugs and issues.
Google has officially introduced the next major OS upgrade — Android 12 – at the I/O 2021 Developers Conference. The update brings Material You design, tweaked UI, improved privacy controls, new clock animation, stacked notifications, new icons, a new media widget, redesigned brightness slider, and security features. Android 12 beta 1 is already available to the Pixel series of phones, including the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5. So, if you have any of the mentioned phones, you can flash the latest Android OS and try out new features. However, in case you don’t own a Pixel phone, the Mountain View giant is making Android 12 beta 1 available to other brands as well, including iQOO, Xiaomi, ASUS, OPPO, TCL, Tecno, and ZTE.
List of phones compatible with Android 12 beta 1
- ASUS ZenFone 8

You can head over to the links of respective phones to download the Android 12 beta ROM. The links also include flashing instructions but we advise you to proceed with caution as the OS is still in the beta stage and might not be suitable for a daily driver. However, most of the devices seem to be offering a rollback option, so you can roll back to a stable Android 11 build if you’re not satisfied with Android 12 beta ROM.
So far these phones are confirmed to get Android 12 beta 1 update but HMD Global has mentioned it will seed the stable update to Nokia X20 in the second half of this year. Sharp has confirmed it will push the Android 12 beta update but is yet to reveal which models will be receiving it. Though OnePlus had released Android 12 beta 1 builds for OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, the company has temporarily withdrawn from the beta program owing to user reports of the build bricking their devices. We hope it will resume once it irons out the issues.
