If reports are anything to go by, Google is all set to launch the next iteration of its Android operating system this year. And honestly, the leaks suggest that it would be a fresh splash of colours, designs and much more.
Several leaks of what will supposedly be called Android 12 have made it to the web. The new leaks come in the form of an alleged early draft of a document made by Google to summarize changes in Android 12. The leak, however, doesn’t show Android 12 running but only screenshots of the same. One can have a glimpse of a new notifications panel, new widgets, new privacy features and more from the leak.
In the new update, the notification panel has been made more opaque, conversations have been separated from other usual notifications and the tabs appear more rounded than ever before. Also, the notification panel has been redone with four quick settings instead of five. We are not sure if you will be able to add more or not.

Other changes that we can notice is that the battery icon has been moved to the side with the cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity indicators. This leaves space at its usual position in Android 12. The newfound spot now showcases the camera and microphone icons as and when they are active, for an increased privacy intimation to the user.
The new privacy features of Android 12 include you being able to disable camera, microphone and location access to any other app.
The report further suggests that Google is also reportedly adding “conversation widgets” as a feature too. This feature can be used to provide easy access to a contact, complete with its name, notification, status information and an avatar.
All these leaks, however, haven’t been confirmed by Google but by tech geeks. So treat them as what they are for now – rumours.
