Google released Android 12 in October 2021. The question of which smartphones will get the new update is on our minds every year, especially when it comes to the mid-range. This article lists smartphones from major manufacturers that are expected to receive Android 12.

However, the introduction of new range of smartphones tilts the balance a bit, because for models like the Nord N10 5G, OnePlus only wants to deliver one major update. Here are the models that should receive Android 12:
