Google said Android 12 phones must have at least 6GB of RAM, 1080p displays and more


Android 12 will soon be rolling out globally and recently, Google just dropped compatibility documentation for the latest software In case you didn't know, Google often release a note for each Android update of hardware information that developers need to know. 

In the Android 12's documentation, developers can now take a look at the software's requirements and optimise whichever device's hardware into different performance levels. We learn that an Android phone must have at least 6GB of RAM, a 1080p resolution display with 400dpi and many more.

With that in mind, it also means entry-level phones will have to keep up with the requirements to adopt Android 12. Otherwise, developers will have to adjust the hardware features such as reducing animations so that it can run smoothly. Anyway, below is a list of performance requirements for Android 12: 

  • MUST have at least 6GB of physical memory. 
  • MUST have screen resolution of at least 1080p. 
  • MUST have screen density of at least 400 dpi. 
  • MUST ensure a sequential write performance of at least 100 MB/s. 
  • MUST ensure a random write performance of at least 10 MB/s
  • MUST ensure a sequential read performance of at least 200 MB/s
  • MUST ensure a random read performance of at least 25 MB/s
  • MUST have a primary rear facing camera with a resolution of at least 12 megapixels supporting video capture at [email protected] The primary rear-facing camera is the Page 19 of 142 rear-facing camera with the lowest camera ID
