Android 12 for FP4?

Any word yet on when to expect Android 12 for FP4?


Hi @JohanL,

I read somewhere on the forum that usually Fairphone takes about 1 year to release a major update.
Perhaps someone else could confirm (or not).

You can read more on this topic : One-handed mode feature request because the FP4 is too big

Best regards, Emmanuel

Thanks Emmanuel. I tried searching around, guess the title of the post threw me of.

If you absolutely can’t wait, CalyxOS for the FP4 is running on Android 12:

Keep in mind those are test builds for now! There are bugs and there is some functionality missing, like Bluetooth audio and access to all the camera features for example.

Only proceed if you have the time / patience for it and your data is all backed up :slightly_smiling_face:

If interested, it seems Google has made Android 13 public beta available to everyone… Android 13 public beta released for Pixel 6 and non-Pixel phones

Android 12 on FP4 running


Hey, let’s reactivate the thread. Any news about when we will have Android 12?

FP support reported this last week:

Our development team is currently working on Android 12, we have a first boot up version delivered in the past couple of weeks which is currently being tested, but we are still several months away from release, our customisations still need to be ported across to the code and a lot more testing needs to happen. The lockdown in Shanghai put our team back a few months on this, so while we were hoping to get Android 12 out in Q3, it may slip into Q4, we are still finalizing the timeline. In terms of a Beta we expect that is still several months away, once we have the results back from this first round of testing we will be in a much better position to plan the schedule but it is just slightly too early for us to be able to share a specific date with confidence.


Thank you!

So, it’s going to be more likely at the end of the year. Works for me. I’m having my fp4 two weeks now, and it’s my first phone with Android 11.

In various custom ROMs already there :wink:

I’m counting the days for DivestOS to launch on the Fairphone 4. Aaaaaaaaany time now…
