When Will The OnePlus 7 and 7t Series Receive OxygenOS 12 Update?


Share post:

With Oxygen OS 11 having received plenty of backlash for its not-so-optimized approach to various apps, it was expected that the OxygenOS 12 update would set things right. OnePlus 7’s lineup receiving OxygenOS 12 update is also a welcome sign given the numerous manufacturers that discontinue future updates for older devices.

As of now, what we do have are the updates for Android 11(OxygenOS for October 2021. They mostly consist of minor improvements and bug elimination which when compared to the previous update may not seem much. While Bitmoji AOD may seem like a nifty feature, I would rather have a device that performs well enough.

Although OxygenOS 12 isn’t exactly making an appearance right now, the open beta is said to be released for the OnePlus 9 series.

The latest October update is said to bring a fix to the long-standing issue of the delayed call interface and provide minor security patches. Many users had reported an inadvertent delay on-call interface display while receiving it. Many users still question the delay in addressing battery draining issues, slow system volumes, and poor haptic feedback.

Even so, system stability improvements are also expected. The Android Security Patch has been upgraded to 2021.10 in the OS update.
