Android 12 is ‘just a few weeks away’ as release candidate Beta 5 lands

Android 12 Beta 5 is here. For those that haven’t been following along at home, this is the last expected release before it hits stable and is ready for the masses — a so-called “release candidate” version that should be almost good to go. This latest version also picks up support for the brand new Pixel 5a, and it’s your last chance to get those beta-testing toes wet before Android 12 is released. On that note, Google also gives us a hint about its schedule, promising that Android 12 is “just a few weeks away.”

Well, a few weeks away for a very small number of phones. For most users, this release is months away, at best, and infinity away, at worst.
