Android 12 Material You Dynamic Theming System Will Be Present on Offerings from Other Smartphone Brands


Android 12 Beta 2.1

Google’s latest version of Android, Android 12 brought with it a new Material You theming system capable of changing the accent color and color profiles in third party apps depending on the device wallpaper.

This feature, codenamed ‘Monet’ is currently on offer only in Google’s Pixel series of devices, but, now, it seems that more companies and smartphones will soon get a taste of this rather interesting tool.

Is Google Bringing Support for Android 12’s Material You on Other Devices?

A new code commit, spotted by Mishaal Rahman in Google’s Material Component library provides us with a list of phones manufacturers who will get support for this new feature, with the list currently featuring the likes of Oppo, OnePlus, Realme, Xiaomi, Vivo, Motorola, Itel, Tecno Mobile, HMD Global (Nokia), Sharp, TCL, Google, Lenovo, Sony and Roboelectric.

The exact code is as follows: private static final Set DYNAMIC_COLOR_SUPPORTED_MANUFACTURERS =
new HashSet(Arrays.asList(
“oppo”, “realme”, “oneplus”, “vivo”, “xiaomi”, “motorola”, “itel”, “tecno mobile limited”,
“infinix mobility limited”, “hmd global”, “sharp”, “sony”, “tcl”, “lenovo”, “google”,
“robolectric”))

One interesting thing to note is that this feature is going to be available to other smartphones, which is actually a welcome edition for Android enthusiasts who are eagerly waiting to get Android 12 on their smartphone but lack a Pixel. It is unclear though as to how the other manufacturers will bring this feature to their respective skins.

The companies may change the algorithm by Google to fix and improve their versions, or make them more unique and in tune with their own skins, be it MIUI, Realme UI or stock android. This may also result in incompatibility in certain applications, since certain developers could have to support the different engines, instead of running the built-in Android method.

What Else Do We Know About this Feature?

One UI

Samsung is not present in this list, but the South Korean giant has said that One UI 4.0 will come with support for dynamic color. One UI 4.0 is still in Beta mode, so Samsung may make changes to the same in the coming months.

In other news, it seems however that Samsung is hopeful for more in 2022, as Korean publication The Elec is reporting that the manufacturer will be stepping up the production of its 2022 foldable handsets.

To be specific, the publication claims that Samsung will plan on producing 2.9 million Galaxy Z Fold 4 smartphones and a whopping 6.9 million Galaxy Z Flip 4 smartphones from Q3 of 2022, adding up to a staggering 9.8 million units. The Elec cites Samsung’s 2022 shipment plan for this bit of information.
