Other OEMs have also started rolling out their Android 12-based custom skin. Samsung recently unveiled its One UI 4 at its Galaxy Unpacked 2 event. OnePlus started rolling out the first public beta of OxygenOS 12 to OnePlus 9 users. All this came after Google’s parent Alphabet started rolling out Android 12 on Pixel phones. The biggest enhancement of Android 12 on Pixel smartphones is the Material You design language that is aimed at enhancing the personalisation of Android 12-powered Pixel smartphones. It also brings many privacy-focused features to Pixel smartphones. Google has introduced a new Privacy Dashboard that will give users a better idea as to what apps are taking what data.
