Android 12 is so well optimized that it can run on a Galaxy S2 phone from 11 years ago

Recently released by Apple, the iOS 15 version can be installed on phones up to the iPhone 6s generation, from 6 years ago. Serving as a demonstration of the level of optimization and compatibility supported by Google, you can install Android 12 even on Galaxy S2 phones, almost 12 years ago.

Highly acclaimed in its day, the Galaxy S2 is one of the most important phones ever launched by Samsung, which has contributed decisively to the rise of the company among the top smartphone manufacturers. However, few would expect the South Korean manufacturer to actively support such an old device, and it really isn’t. Instead, the freedom granted by Google to the Android community is sometimes rewarded with some of the most pleasant surprises, such as the appearance of an Android 12 ROM for Galaxy S2 phones, almost fully functional.

To put things in perspective, this is a smartphone with a dual-core processor at 1.2GHz and 1GB of RAM, with much less processing resources than any low-cost smartphone you could currently order at the new stage. . However, someone managed to adapt the Android 12 AOSP kit for installation on Galaxy S2 phones, sacrificing only a few of the phone’s basic features, such as the shooting function (based on a codec not supported by such a chipset). old) and GPS receiver. Instead, nostalgic people can try at least the standard package of Google apps and services, added to bring the Galaxy S2 experience to a somewhat contemporary level.
