Google had designed Android 12L for large-screen devices, with a focus on bringing special features and UI design for foldables, tablets, and even Chrome OS devices. Samsung has now announced that its tablets will also get the Android 12L OS. However, the company did not reveal when exactly it will be rolled out.
A Samsung spokesperson told 9to5Google that it is working on bringing Android 12 to its tablets in the future. However, no set timeline was disclosed.
We are in constant conversation with our collaborators at Google and Android, and we’re committed to bringing Android 12L to our tablets in the future. Currently, we do not have a set timeline for when Android 12L will be available on these devices.

Android 12L was announced last year in October, and brought with it a more-refined UI across notifications, quick settings, lock screen, home screen, and more for devices with larger screens. The Android 12L overhaul introduced a new two-column layout for the notification shade, lock screen, and other system surfaces, to take full advantage of the larger screen area. It has also optimised system apps for tablets.
Back when Android 12L was first announced, Google had confirmed that it will come to Samsung devices such as the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Tab S7+, and Galaxy Tab S7 FE. However, it is the first time that Samsung has confirmed that it is working on bringing Android 12L for its tablets. Though it is to be noted that the Galaxy Tab S8 series will not come with Android 12L out of the box. The Lenovo P12 Pro remains the only tablet that can run it in preview. Just today, it was reported that the upcoming OnePlus Pad will run on Android 12L.
