Google releases Android 12 system requirements

Android 12 will require your device to have at least a 1080p screen and 6GB of RAM

Is this due to the different look and new features?

The minimum system requirements list what your device needs to have to run Android 12. Google revealed the RAM, screen resolution, read/write speed, main camera resolution, and selfie camera resolution.

First, Android 12 requires at least 6GB of RAM to run adequately. In addition, a screen with at least a 1080p resolution is needed with a pixel density of 400 ppi. For storage read and write speeds, it needs to have sequential flash memory speeds of at least 250MB/s and 120MB/s respectively.

The main camera should be at least 12MP resolution with the capability to record 4K videos at 30 fps. The selfie camera will need to be at least 4MP with the capability to shoot 1080p videos at 30 fps.

Let's get the cameras out of the way first, we believe that this will be the easiest requirement to meet as even some of the more budget-friendly Android smartphones come with at least a 48MP main sensor.

However, when it comes to the RAM and screen resolution requirements, it becomes a different story. A lot of devices still come out with 720p HD+ screens with lower pixel density numbers as well as 4GB of RAM. Does this mean that the baseline for all entry-level devices will be 6GB RAM with FHD+ screens? Are older devices not going to receive this update if they don't meet the requirements?

Well, there's no simple answer to that. First up, we may see a newer version of the Android Go edition. An update for that may be on the horizon due to these high minimum requirements for Android 12.

With a myriad of entry-level devices still rocking even 2GB RAM and 720p HD+ screens, it is not hard to see that Google may have a trick up its sleeves for solutions like these.

Either way, we will need to wait for the official Android 12 launch to find out more.
