The Android 12 was officially released on October 4th 2021 and it was instantly available on many Google Pixel and Samsung devices. The new operating system succeeded Android 11 and presents a redesigned UI, system-wide design, and revamped notification system.
As the long-awaited Google Android 12 update is finally here and most OEMs including Tecno has already started rolling out the new update alongside their respective skins to both their midrange and flagship smartphones. However, the popular question among many users will be whether their Tecno smartphones will be eligible for the Android 12 update and if so, when?
These are common questions every phone lover that loves to stay updated will ask especially Tecno owners as we all know how the story goes. Tecno Mobile is known of been reluctant in rolling out new updates as they prefer launching new phones with that latest operating system, thereby forcing the users to buy the new ones if they want to stay updated.
In this article, we’ll be taking a sneak peek at the new features available in Android 12 alongside Tecno phones that’ll likely be getting the latest operating system update.

Android 12: Features of the new Operating System
Android 12 just like we all anticipated comes with interesting features and upgrades unlike last year’s Android 11. Some of these features are:
When it comes to design, Android 12 introduces a new design style that brings extra customisable options. Fortunately, you can match it together with the colour of your theme and wallpaper and other components of the phone. Also, the widgets have been redesigned much to our surprise.
This is a feature we first saw on Android 10 but felt it’s worth bringing it here again. Scrolling screenshots does not only allow you to capture what’s on the screen presently but also beneath it such as capturing the entire webpage or document.
Fortunately, the recent apps section has received some love from Google. This year Android 12, Google has added new overview suggestions which will show you things to do according to your recent activity.
Revamped Game Mode
With the latest Google Android 12 update, the gaming performance of your Tecno phone will be improved. Also, you can decide to turn off notifications while playing games in case you won’t like to be disturbed.
Android 12 brings in a native one-handed mode. You can locate it in the Settings by going to System, and then Gestures. The one-handed mode will break everything into half, more like multi-window mode. This will make it easier to operate the phone especially tall ones.
