The two-year-old Fairphone 4 will receive the next major Android 12 update on February 1, the company announced. In a community blog post, a Fairphone employee shared when we can expect his long-awaited Fairphone 4 update. The device was originally scheduled to receive an update in December. However, it was postponed due to severe emergency calling issues in certain areas. Starting this Wednesday, Fairphone 4 will receive the Android 12 update as part of a gradual rollout in select regions. Fairphone says the update still doesn’t meet the company’s quality standards in some countries.
Such as Switzerland and France. Going forward, Fariphone users may experience delays with certain carriers in these regions, but we’ll be sure to update in the near future. Already a year old, we haven’t decided what features to expect in the new Android 12 update. But Fairphone is one such company, and they don’t plan to release new Android devices every year or roll out the latest updates every quarter. The company’s mission has always been to promote sustainability and manufacture phones that have a significant impact on e-waste limits.
We also shared our plans to expand our support so we don’t leave you out in the cold. Fairphone users running Android 11 will soon receive maintenance releases containing new security patches with updated security. Other of his Fairphone news this month includes the company announcing that his seven-year-old Fairphone 2 will receive its last major update in March. However, just in case users are interested, his Lineage OS user named /e/OS has promised to extend support for at least another year for him.
