The dynamic colors and themes of Android 12 are still only available on the Pixel 6 (Pro). That could change, however, because other manufacturers should also use the automatic color system on their smartphones. An important manufacturer is missing from the list.
Android 12: Notes on dynamic themes for everyone
Google’s Pixel phones will not only be equipped with new Android versions first, but will also receive a few exclusive features.

Dynamic themes already on Android 12L?
The function could already be made available to manufacturers with Android 12L. With a release of the update is in spring 2022 to be expected. By then at the latest, the cell phone manufacturers will start thinking about their own implementation.
