“Android 12L is a special feature drop that makes Android 12 even better on big displays,” according to Google. The L-branded Android 12 OS offers a system UI that has been refined and polished for large-screen smartphones. The new UI improvements will be seen initially on smartphones with a screen resolution of above 600dp; on larger displays, there will be a new two-column notification shade, lock screen, and other system pages. Here’s a new screenshot of the notification shade in Android 12L.
Android 12L comes with new multitasking features, including a redesigned taskbar that allows users to effortlessly drag and drop a second app to enter split-screen mode, as well as the ability to disable the taskbar with a simple motion.
