Android 12: Know the new design that Google didn’t want you to see

Android 12

The first test version of Android 12 arrived yesterday and many were eager to learn about its new design. However, frustration started when they came across aesthetic lines similar to those of their predecessor.

Thanks to the XDA Developers we now know that Android 12 really brings a new interface. Although Google went to great lengths to hide it, the team at this forum wasted no time sharing its findings with the world.

Google hid the new design on Android 12

As the source points out, the new design is hidden within Android 12. It is only after looking at the source code of the operating system that the XDA Developers managed to enable the renewed aesthetics of the operating system.

The shared images show us a design that coincides with the one we saw even before the release of the first test version of Android 12. There are significant changes in the notification bar, as well as in the equipment lock screen.

Starting with the latter, Android 12 brings a new array of information, with a predominance of the clock when you have no notifications to read. When they reach the smartphone, the watch will shrink to the right side in order to give more prominence to notifications.

Already in always on display, we also see changes in the provision of information. The clock moves to the right – as in the previous scenario – and on the left you will find the time and date widget.

Deep change notification bar

As we saw earlier, the notification bar presents the main aesthetic innovations of Android 12. This information is now highlighted on cards that, in these images, turn out to be more opaque than in the first ones.

The quick settings bar is now more present on the smartphone screen. A larger bar for adjusting the brightness of the screen contributes to this.

The quick access icons now occupy a larger portion of the screen, as they are now arranged in a 3 x 3 grid. It is not yet known whether this grid may be subject to changes.

It remains to be seen whether these changes will reach the final and stable version of Android 12. The fact that Google has hidden them in this version for developers indicates that the changes are not yet fully defined.
