IQOO has announced when Android 12 Beta will be available for its phones

These include the estimated time for the iQOO 7 series, which includes a total of two smartphones – iQOO 7 and the flagship device by the company – iQOO 7 Legend. In addition, the new OS will also be rolled out for the iQOO Z series, which again, includes two devices – iQOO Z3 and the recently launched iQOO Z5.

iQOO clears that the Beta version of Android 12 will be released on a batch-by-batch basis to all these smartphones. So, in case you do not receive the update on your iQOO smartphone right during the mentioned time period, you can expect it to arrive within a couple of weeks after.

The new Android OS will be a major upgrade to the iQOO 3 and less so for the iQOO 7, iQOO 7 Legend and the iQOO Z3 that debuted earlier this year and ran Android 10 out-of-the-box. iQOO Z5, the latest smartphone in this list, runs Android 11 based FunTouch OS out-of-the-box. Android 12 Beta will thus be a refreshing change for all iQOO users, with enhanced capabilities that Google has introduced with the new OS.

Expect some tweaks to the Android 12 Beta as and when it arrives on the iQOO smartphones. The company will likely introduce these in order to fit in the new Android version to its FunTouch OS. These may include a distinct visual appearance along with certain shortcuts and accessibility features.
