    Please note:
    • If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta), you will receive this new build as an OTA.
    • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM on the downloads page here.
    • Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
    • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).
    Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here in the thread too. We are watching.

    Never Settle.

    As usual No Improvement. No any new features. It's open beta 9. Where is the ideas 2.0 that oneplus promise to bring in OS 11. Now a days oneplus is only fixing the bugs whole year. And then next android version is released then again repeat it's bug solving problems. Whole year we can't experience the smoothness of Oxygen OS. Wtf oneplus ??

    Euh.. The Android 12 version is just out of its Beta Developer Preview
    The beta version for developers is available since 18 February 2021.
    It will take several months to install the public beta. Android 11 was made available on 10 June 2020. The final version of Android 12 is expected this summer, between August and September. Android 11 was released on 8 September.
    So, don't be in such a hurry :p

    I am talking about fake promises of oneplus. In October 2020 they released android 11 and till now the OS is so much buggy.
    In between they announced in 2019 that they will introduce oneplus pay in 2020 but now it's 2021 and no chance to come oneplus pay. From last 2 years oneplus software department is not doing anything.

    some people maybe they are wrong but most of them are right... they still haven't bring it back the coolest camera feature.. live object tracking in video mode.....
    OnePlus is focusing on new products, they don't care about their previous devices.

    What data monitor are you refering to? Digital gene (or what it was called)? The one linked into the account settings with steps, traveled cities and so on?

    Ah. Somehow managed to miss that part in the change log 😉

    Then I assume it could stay in beta for some time in the devices that currently run betas. In some cases some features that come in betas now may in worst case need to wait for Android 12 before reaching stable versions on older devices. I would guess this reaches 9 series first as stable version.

    Yeah, you're probably right. The optimized charging feature for example, i had it already in the beta's based on OS10 on my 7t pro, and it only made it's way to the stable build with the first version of OS11

    Are others still getting the UI crash/freeze issue? I've just reset my phone after updating and it's still causing an issue sometimes.

    Installed, no major issues as yet (maybe I'm just lucky).

    Gallery loading speed is indeed improved.

    Not since beta 7 for me. Thankfully. It was so annoying.
