Android 12 (Go edition) official
Today, Google unveiled Android 12 (Go edition), a variant of its latest operating system aimed at low-cost, low-end smartphones with limited hardware capabilities.
Over 200 million people use an Android (Go edition) phone, and Google claims that the next version of the OS will be quicker, smarter, and more privacy-friendly.
Apps will start up to 30 percent quicker on the latest Go edition phones than on prior Go edition Android versions, and animations will be smoother. The SplashScreen API from Android 12 will also be offered here, allowing developers to provide you with something to look at while the app is loaded.
Android 12 (Go edition) saves battery life and storage space by hibernating applications that haven’t been used for a long time.
The revised Files Go app now allows you to retrieve data up to 30 days after they’ve been deleted, allowing you to confidently delete files you don’t think you need. We’re curious why these capabilities aren’t built into the non-Go edition version of Android 12, as they appear to be fairly beneficial to everyone.

You may conserve data by sharing apps directly with nearby devices via Nearby Share and Google Play. When it comes to sharing, Go edition makes it simple to switch to a guest profile before sharing your device, and to reset that profile after the person with whom you shared it has finished using it. To make this process easier, profiles will be accessible immediately from the lock screen.
The new Android 12 Privacy dashboard is also available in the Go edition, giving you a quick view of which applications are accessing sensitive data. The privacy indication in the status bar is also back, letting you know when applications are accessing your microphone and/or camera. Another feature of Android 12 that has made it to the Go version is approximate location permissions.
All of this will be available in 2022 on Android 12 (Go edition) smartphones.
