With the release of Android 12L, Google has rekindled many people’s interest in large-screen Android devices.In order to know how Android 12L introduced “additional features” to Galaxy Z Fold 3 folding screen devices, 9to5Google borrowed the Android Studio emulator to experience it.
Galaxy Z Fold 3 is equipped with a 7.6-inch flexible inner screen @ 2208×1768 resolution, and the first obvious change brought by Android 12L is reflected in the notification/quick settings tray (the update introduces a side-by-side layout).
Interestingly, this is limited to the horizontal screen mode of the Galaxy Z Fold 3. But regardless of the vertical or vertical orientation, we can see Google’s experience enhancement in multitasking capabilities.
The new multitasking screen has a large view to present an application, and there is a newly introduced “split screen” shortcut below, and the rest of the apps are displayed in the 4×4 grid on the left.
The split-screen mode is also significantly related to the device orientation of Android 12L-if the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is in portrait mode, the windows can only be stacked on top of each other. But in horizontal mode, it will only be displayed side by side.
Although Android 12L’s multitasking window manager logic is similar toSamsungThe design of OneUI is just the opposite, but at least Google still has enough time to optimize the adaptation.
In addition, we saw the new taskbar of Android 12, which allows users to directly drag and drop the App icon from the Dock (up to 5 in a row under the main screen) and let it be presented in split-screen mode without leaving the current application.
Finally, even though the first experience was brief and somewhat strangeAndroid StudioThe emulator bug has not been resolved, but we are still looking forward to the future development of Android 12L.
If all goes well, Google is expected to provide the first full experience version of Android 12L in the first quarter of 2022.
