Android 12 update: When is it coming to your phone?

We don't have all the official update timelines yet, but we can make predictions based on the rollouts of previous updates.
April 23, 2022

The stable Android 12 update is here. The new version of Google’s OS made its debut on the latest Pixel 6 series, but Google started rolling it out to older Pixel devices on day one as well. Android 12 is quite the upgrade over its predecessor, featuring a revamped design and a bunch of new features like scrolling screenshots, a one-handed mode, and much more.

But when will handsets from Samsung, OnePlus, Sony, and other companies get the Android 12 update? Update rollouts are in full swing at this point, and there’s a chance your phone is already eligible for the latest software update. Let’s head through each OEM to give you an idea of what to expect.

It all depends what phone you’re carrying in your pocket. Some devices have already received their Android 12 updates, but others from OEMs like LG will have to wait longer. Check the list above to find your specific make and model.

Once your Android 12 update becomes available, head to the settings menu. If your phone has a software update option, tap on it. This will search for the update and download it if it’s ready.

Asus Android 12 update

Asus released the first stable Android 10 update approximately two months after the OS became available. It was also pretty fast when it came to Android 11, rolling out the first update around three months after its release.

Asus first upgraded its ZenFone 6 series to Android 11 before shipping out the update to the newer ZenFone 7 phones, which seemed strange. It seems to be back on track this year, bringing updates to the latest ZenFone 8 series first.

  • First stable Android 12 release: December 29, 2021

October 22, 2021: Asus has announced its update plans for Android 12, according to GSM Arena. Per those plans, here’s when we expect the update to land on current Asus devices:

  • Q2 2022: ROG Phone 5, ROG Phone 5s
  • H1 2022: ROG Phone 3, ZenFone 7

December 29, 2021: The Android 12 update is now live for the ZenFone 8 and ZenFone 8 Flip, according to XDA-Developers.

March 15, 2922: Asus has begun to seed its Android 12 update for the ROG Phone 5, according to its ZenTalk forum.

Google Android 12 update

The Pixel phones are always among the first to get the stable update of the new Android version, and this year is no different. Google started rolling out the update on day one, although not to all of its phones — more info below.

  • First stable Android 12 release: October 19, 2021

October 19, 2021: Google has started rolling out Android 12 to the Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL. The Pixel 6 already has Android 12 onboard, while Google’s older phones will not be updated to the latest version of the OS. So if you own the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, or the original Pixel phones, you’re out of luck.

LG Android 12 update

LG is out of the mobile business, but it still plans on updating a few of its phones to Android 12. The company didn’t mention which ones, but we think it will focus just on its high-end devices like the LG Wing and V60.

LG released its first stable Android 11 update four months after the OS became available. Since LG doesn’t care about the smartphone market anymore, we’ve had to wait a bit longer. So far, Android 12 has only arrived on the LG Velvet in South Korea and on the V60 in the US. This means it should be on the way for the rest of the world before long, but we can expect South Korea to continue getting the first crack at updates.

  • First stable Android 12 release: March 16, 2022

March 16, 2022: The LG Velvet has begun to receive Android 12 in South Korea, per its own website.

April 4, 2022: LG has unveiled a roadmap of devices set to receive Android 12 in Q2, 2022. These devices include the LG Q92 5G, V50, and V50S.

April 22, 2022: According to a thread on Reddit, the T-Mobile version of the LG V60 is now receiving the Android 12 update.

Motorola Android 12 update

Motorola released the first Android 10 update three months after the OS made its debut. The company was a little slower with Android 11, releasing it four months after it became available. It followed the timeline once again, with the first Android 12 updates landing in the UK in early February.

Keep in mind that Motorola has a habit of releasing updates for many of its phones in Brazil first before rolling them out in the US, Europe, and other regions, so it may take longer to see an update for many users.

  • First stable Android 12 release: February 9, 2022

December 22, 2021: Motorola has unveiled its Android 12 roadmap in a blog post. It confirmed the update for all of the following devices, though it did not offer a time frame for the rollout beyond February 2022.

Nokia’s track record with Android 10 updates was great, with the company releasing the first one a month after the OS became available. Things were different with Android 11, though, as the first stable update started rolling out five months after the OS made its debut.

Nokia hasn’t shared a full update timeline yet, but it seems to be making quick progress for certain devices this year. It launched the Android 12 update around three months after the official announcement, though it’s only come to a few devices at this point.

  • First stable Android 12 release: December 16, 2021

OnePlus 9 Pro

OnePlus is generally fast with updates, a trend that we saw continue this year. The company released both the Android 10 and 11 updates roughly a month after becoming available, though it slowed down slightly this year with an initial launch in December 2021.

As expected, OnePlus rolled the Android 12 update to its flagship OnePlus 9 series first. However, it was met with issues for many users, ultimately forcing them to pull the update for a few days before trying again. This may mean that other OnePlus devices will have to wait longer for their update.

  • First stable Android 12 release: December 7, 2021

The company is making good progress with its rollout thus far, with multiple Find and Reno devices already running Android 12. Oppo also released one of the more complete schedules, so we already know what devices are in line to receive the latest software.

Realme shipped out Android 10 four months after its release. It was a bit faster with Android 11, rolling it out three months after it became available.

The company wasn’t quite as quick with Android 12, but beta testing kicked off in early 2022. We’ve now seen the full build start to arrive on select devices. As usual, the company is focused on its high-end phones first and before making its way down the list. Right now, Realme is allowing users to continue joining its beta program, which means we may still have a while before we see all of the stable updates.

We’ve now started to see the update land on select devices in early 2022, with betas available for more phones.

The Vivo’s X70 Pro Plus will be the first to get it, which makes sense since it’s the best phone in the company’s lineup. Other phones will follow shortly, as seen in the timeline below.
