Last week, US search engine giant Google released the fifth beta build of Android 12 for Pixel phones. The company says that we should expect Android 12 stable version update to launch in just a few weeks from now, but didn’t gave a firm date. Now, there is evidence pointing to what the tentative launch date of the Android 12 stable update for Pixel phones.
According to this document, Google will publish the source code for Android 12 on October 4, 2021. This source code will be published on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) Gerrit, and it will very likely coincide with the release of the Android 12 stable update for Pixel phones, if we go by the history.
