Android 12a started rolling to the Motorola Edge 20. This update is identified as software version S1RG32.53-18-11, and it is deployed on the XT2143-1-DS variant of the device. Note that this is the model available in Brazil.
Motorola Edge 20 now gets Android 12
Even if you own a different variant, you should receive this update in the near future. Motorola tends to continue expanding into other markets soon after the first one.
This update follows the Moto G Pro and Moto G30 Android 12 updates. The Moto G Pro was the first to get Android 12, as far as Motorola’s offerings go.
The update will roll out to your phone as soon as it’s ready, as of course it’s a staged rollout. The device will notify you once the OTA (Over-The-Air) update is ready. You can also check it manually by going to Settings -> System -> Advanced -> System Updates.
Now, if you don’t want to wait for the update to land on your phone, there is a solution for that. You can use the Motorola Rescue and Smart Assistant Tool, and install the update manually. Note that this software can provide you with the updated firmware and flash it to your phone, but you will need a PC.
This update brings quite a few new features to the phone, as well as design changes
The Android 12 update for the Motorola Edge 20 brings a ton of new features to the device, including the new Material You design. A new notification panel is also here, and the same goes for the privacy dashboard.
Scrolling screenshots are included in this update for the device, as are new home screen widgets. These are all regular Android 12 features, but Motorola is also including some of its own.
You’ll find the company customizations in My UX skin, such as the ability to turn on the flashlight with a chop gesture, launch the camera with a twist of your wrist, and more. However, these features were also available in Android 11.
Android 12 is coming to Razr 5G, Motorola Edge 5G, Moto G200, Moto G50 and many more devices. We don’t know when it will be available, however.
