Android 12, what we know so far?

Android 11, internally named Red Velvet Cake.

Although Android has dropped the retail names for Android versions, the internal names stayed intact. Android 11 is internally named “RVC” or “Red Velvet Cake”. This time there are rumours flying around that, since Android 12 is prefaced as “SC”, the internal name may be “Snow Cone”
