OnePlus finally gets the Nord 2 the first android 12 open beta build on the 27th of April 2022. Nord 2 fans are excited about the coming update. OnePlus has finally managed to get round to issuing a similar release for the much newer Nord 2. Which launched last July running Android 11 and is still stuck on that version of the OS even today.
Which is a big shame considering Oneplus is a Tech giant, but they’re taking time to fix the issues bit by bit. The first such step is today’s release of OxygenOS 12 Open Beta 1 for the Nord 2. As usual with such builds, don’t go down this path if you’re not comfortable with bugs and random issues showing up. The Open Beta 1 will make some features of the Nord 1 Pac-Man edition disappear, so maybe skip this entirely if you have one of those.
Final note: as of now, the only download available of OxygenOS 12 Open Beta 1 is for the Indian version of the Nord2.
