OnePlus Oxygen OS 12 update: Oxygen OS 12 release date, features, download, and list of supported devices have started doing the rounds of the internet. The upcoming custom Android skin from OnePlus will be a follow-up to last year’s Oxygen OS 11. The OxygenOS 12 is likely to be based on the latest Android 12 out of the box. We may expect Oxygen OS 12 to come pre-loaded in the upcoming OnePlus flagship and roll out as a software update to already launched OnePlus mobile phones. Here’s a roundup of the rumoured OnePlus Oxygen OS 12 release date, features, eligible devices, and more.
OxygenOS 12 supported devices
OnePlus hasn’t shared the official list of Oxygen OS 12 supported devices. However, if rumours are anything to go by these smartphones are likely to get the software update:
- OnePlus 9 Pro
- OnePlus 9
- OnePlus 8T
- OnePlus 8 Pro
- OnePlus 8
- OnePlus Nord
- OnePlus 7T Pro
- OnePlus 7T
- OnePlus 7 Pro
- OnePlus 7
As for the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and OnePlus Nord N100, the handsets are unlikely to get Android 12-based OxygenOS 12. The company would reportedly seed only one major Android update for the OnePlus Nord N series phones. Both the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and the OnePlus N100, to recall, were announced with Android 10, which means Android 11-based on Oxygen OS 11 will be their last update.
Oxygen OS 12 features
The OnePlus Oxygen OS 12 update will bring a new dedicated theme store that will allow users to configure smartphones according to their liking. The store will comprise a panel of 15 users and other OnePlus community members. While OnePlus hasn’t given a glimpse of the store, rumours are that it’s likely to be similar to Samsung Themes, Samsung’s comprehensive customisation store for your OneUI. There are likely to be both free and paid themes, which will appeal to creators and designers.
That’s all the information around Oxygen OS 12 features we can divulge at the moment. Having said that, the company recently announced that it’s working closely with OPPO for faster OxygenOS 12 (Android 12) and future software updates.
Oxygen OS 12 download
While the company has opened Android 12 Developer Preview for the OnePlus 9 series, it’s yet to make Oxygen OS 12 download available for its devices. The update will be available after the custom skin is announced. The OxygenOS 12 beta update will be available for download initially, followed by a final release with all the bug fixes later this year.
Oxygen OS 12 release date in India
There is no word on Oxygen OS 12 release date yet. However, the company recently announced the Android 12 Developer Preview for its flagship OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. After the Developer Preview program ends, it’s likely that OnePlus will kick-start the Android 12 Public Beta program followed by the final release of the software to all users. This will take approximately 2-3 months time, so expect the Android 12-based Oxygen OS 12 release in India, as well as in other countries, this fall.
