Android 12 stable update release date has been leaked, according to an internal document of Google. The leaked documents suggest that the update will launch on October 4th. That would make it about three weeks later than the release of Android 11, which took place in September 2020.
Android 12 Release Date: October 4, 2021
The information about the release date of Android 12 comes through a tweet from Mishaal Rahman, who works for XDA-Developers, a website that often comes out with reliable information. According to reports, thanks to an internal document from Google, the source code of Android 12 will release on October 4 for the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).
As per Rahman, there are also other sources who have confirmed this to him. This means that the first users can get started with the consumer version of the software in about three weeks.

In the last few years, the release period often coincides with the public release of a new Android version. Android 11 was officially released on September 8, 2020, while the Android 10 update was released on September 3, 2019.
Android 12 coming first to Google Pixel 6 (Pro)
According to reports, Android 12 will be coming to Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro mobile phones. Even though the search giant has already released some information about the upcoming smartphones, not everything is known yet. For example, we are still in the dark about the Google Tensor chip, configurations in terms of working memory and storage, or, for example, the prices.
Earlier, Google already placed several teasers of the new devices, on which the date of October 19 was shown. So it could just be that we will see Android 12 on October 4, while the Pixel 6 smartphones are released two weeks later.
