    Google will host its annual developer conference between May 18 and May 20. One of the big announcements at the I/O conference is going to be Android 12. Ahead of the announcement, Google has already begun testing the latest iteration of OS with developers. Now, leakster Jon Prosser's Front Page Tech has posted a video to reveal more details about the Android 12.

    According to the video, Android 12 will come with revamped notifications panel that will show you the number of alerts. The video also shows a lock screen pill-like menu to alert users about what they have missed. The video further reveals new widgets and buttons design. There will also be redesigned clock and weather features. Engadget points out that Android 12 may bring a more fluid look and better effects. You can watch the video below:

    The details are in line with the spate of rumours of late. Google's recent developer preview brought in a wide range of features, including an improved picture-in-picture mode. The preview also comes with a ‘game dashboard' for gamers. The update also came with extending security for lock screen notifications and extending the scope of Companion Device Manager.

    Apart from Android 12, you can also expect some hardware launches at the I/O 2021 conference. Already, rumours of Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are doing the rounds. Last week, we came across leaked renders of the two phones. The photos reveal Pixel 6 is smaller and has only two cameras on the back. As expected, the Pixel 6 Pro is bigger and houses three sensors on the back, where the third sensor could be a telephoto lens.
