Google's Next Tablet Effort Is Android 12L

Enter Android 12L. It’s designed for bigger screens, including foldables and even laptops. It boils down to a set of new features for the existing OS that are optimized for big screens. While Android can handle a (sort of) multi-window experience, parts of the interface still end up feeling like a blown-up version of a phone OS, rather than something that makes better use of the increased space. One of the things coming to Android 12L is a two-column layout for the notification shade and lockscreen when the system detects that the screen is above 600dps wide. Android is even adding a taskbar which is all very… Chromebook.

Google has not abandoned Android tablets. Despite the fact that, given the previous five years, it should have. I’m (half) joking, but larger-screened Android devices have felt like an afterthought for a long, as iPads and Windows-powered hybrids dominated the high end, and low-cost devices for families and businesses delivered a basically smartphone experience with greater screen real estate.

​​We’ve been hearing about Intel’s powerful hybrid processors for so long, but finally the company is ready to launch those chips, previously codenamed “Alder Lake,” as its 12th-gen desktop CPUs. And maybe, just maybe, it’ll be able to steal the spotlight back from AMD and Apple.

Intel says 12th-gen chips are up to 19 percent faster than 11th-gen overall, and they’re twice as fast in the Adobe After Effects Pulse benchmark. When it comes to multithreaded performance (tasks built specifically for more than one core, like video and 3D rendering), the company claims the top-end i9-12900K is 50 percent faster than last year’s comparable chip from Intel while using less power. Better still, it can achieve performance parity using only around a quarter of the power. Basically, everyone who held off on upgrading over the last few years could be in for a treat.
