HMD Global announced yesterday that the Nokia X20 will be part of the Android 12 developer preview program. The program will launch later this year, giving app developers a chance to try out the latest version of Android on the Nokia X20. Nokia Mobile also allows developers to join the Nokia Community Forum, where they can share ideas, tips, and collaborate with users, fans, and fans of Nokia devices.

Android™ 12 will provide a host of new and updated features for people, such as:

  • Supporting AVIF images, so you don’t have to sacrifice the quality of images for large file sizes;
  • Audio-coupled haptic feedback for more immersive gaming and audio experiences.
  • Refreshed app launch animations for an improved experience.
  • Improved privacy and security features ensuring personal data are kept as safe as possible.
  • Stephen Taylor, Chief marketing Officer HMD Global, said: “We’re extremely excited to announce, due to our close partnership with Google, that we will soon be able to offer access to the first Android 12 beta.’

    “We understand that people want to use their phones for longer, and with a Nokia phone, it’s not just hardware durability which comes as standard. A smooth software that performs as new for years is just as important, which is why we want to work closely with our developer community on creating the best possible user experience. Longevity is the foundation of our new line-up of Nokia smartphones, so we offer up to three years of OS upgrades - recognised as one of the most comprehensive offerings in the smartphone market and continue to be the market leader in security updates. The Nokia X20 joins a family of devices that have helped shape Android for years.”

    “We can’t wait to receive feedback from our community of dedicated Nokia fans, so we can cater to their requirements and continue providing our customers with even more value from the smartphones they love.”

    Developers taking part in the programme will be able to collaborate, share ideas and tips with like-minded experts through the Nokia phones community forum. To join the forum, developers can register through the MyPhoneApp available on all Nokia smartphones. Furthermore, through the Android 12 developer preview programme, app experts can communicate directly in 16 languages with HMD Global’s in-house developer team.
