OnePlus Nord CE 2 OxygenOS 12 Closed Beta Program

OnePlus Nord CE 2 users can finally upgrade to the Android 12 based OxygenOS 12 through CBT program. The company shares an application form link for the users who want to join the CBT program.

The early beta builds are not great for daily use, you may face some issues and bugs. We don’t recommend installing early beta builds on a primary smartphone, you can wait for open beta update for more stability.

If your application got selected then you’ll receive the update via special OTA. Before upgrading your device, make sure to take a backup of important data.
