Android 12 update trackers by brand:
Asus Android 12 update
Luke Pollack / Android Authority
Almost two months after the OS became available, Asus has released the first stable update to Android 10. It's also pretty fast when it comes to Android 11, with the first update around three months after release.
Asus first updated the ZenFone 6 series to Android 11 before pushing the update to the new ZenFone 7 phones, which looks strange. This year seems to be back on track, first bringing an update to the latest ZenFone 8 series.
October 22, 2021: According to GSM Arena, Asus has announced plans for the Android 12 update. Following these plans, we expect the update to hit Asus devices today:

Pixel phones are always the first to receive stable updates to new versions of Android, and this year was no different. The Google update started rolling out on the first day, but not to all of its phones - more on that below.

The Pixel 6 already has Android 12 installed, and older Google phones won't be able to update to the latest version of the operating system. So if you have a Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, or an original Pixel phone, you're out of luck.
LG Android 12 update

LG is exiting the mobile business, but still plans to update some of its phones to Android 12. The company has yet to mention which one it is, but we suspect it will only focus on high-end devices like the LG Wing and V60.
LG released the first stable update to Android 11 four months after the OS became available. Since LG does not care about the smartphone market, we still have to wait for a while. So far, Android 12 has only reached the LG Velvet in South Korea and the V60 in the US. That means it's about to roll out globally, but we can expect South Korea to keep getting updates first.
March 16, 2022: The LG Velvet has started receiving Android 12 in South Korea, according to its website.
April 4, 2022: LG has unveiled a roadmap for devices that will receive Android 12 in the second quarter of 2022. These devices include the LG Q92 5G, V50 and V50S.
