The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro gets on Android 12L thanks to its first Developer Preview build
Lenovo is actively involved in Google's efforts to implement Android 12L through the medium of the OEM's premium Tab P12 Pro. It accepts a coupon on its first-party webstore that encourages uptake of the new OS version with a 10% discount; now, new owners can put it into practice by running an early build on their tablet.
They can download this version of Android 12L for the Tab P12 Pro via the OEM's new Developer Preview Program, thereby accessing a first look at how Google concludes its cutting-edge software should look and act on a 12.6-inch 2K display.
On the other hand, the build is mainly intended for developers, meaning this initial 12L variant will be intensely bare-bones to start off with, eschewing functionality for a whole raft of features, some of which affect the Tab P12 Pro's hardware.
Accordingly, Android 12L Developer Preview 1 effectively breaks the tablet's biometrics; the depth-sensing of its camera system; its dedicated stylus key function; some touchscreen gesture responses; Miracast and casting via the slate's possibly prized ability to use HDMI, to name but a few.
Nevertheless, those who want to start figuring out development for the Tab P12 Pro on 12L are welcome to do so, by following the instructions on Lenovo's website. Happy building!
