The Galaxy Fold 4 was announced some few days ago by Samsung. Due to its similar looks to its predecessor the Galaxy Fold 3, a lot of people had their attention mainly focused on finding the main hardware differences. Many didn’t really focus on the software aspect of the newly launched Fold 4. But it sure did come with some software upgrades in the Android 12L which is worth discussing.

The Galaxy Fold 4 did launched with Android 12. But this is a whole new breed of the Android 12 that Google has just launched specifically for Foldable Smartphones, Tables and Chrome books. Fortunately for the Fold 4, it was the first device to debut the Android 12L

What Is Unique About The Android 12L?

The Fold 4 may be similar to the Fold 3 in terms of looks and design. But when you unfold the device, you can instantly notice something very different. That is the taskbar which Samsung has placed at the bottom of the user interface. According to rumors, Samsung will be rolling out One UI 4.1.1 for old foldables later this year. If all goes well, this update should come with the Taskbar for the previous foldable devices.

In actual fact, the Android 12L system is a very new system which just launched recently. Apart from the Fold 4, all other foldable smartphones are older than the Android 12L. So the news of Samsung updating their previous foldable to this system did not come as much of a surprise.

Even though we are much aware of this latest update coming to the old foldable smartphones, we cannot be too sure which of the older devices will receive the update. Could it be the Fold 3, the Fold 2 or all three of them? This question is up to Samsung to answer in some few months.

Is The Taskbar Part Of Android 12L or One UI?

From our own observations of the Android 12L on the Fold 4, it is quite hard to tell which of the functionalities came stocked with the Android 12L and which of them were addition from Samsung’s One UI 4.1. When it comes to the Taskbar however, we can confirm that the Taskbar came with Android 12L. This Taskbar functionality is already being displayed in the homepage of Android developers website. What this means is that, all other devices that will use the Android 12L will have the new Taskbar.
