OnePlus has already rolled out stable Android 12 for some of its phones, but there are still a few devices like the OnePlus 7 and 7T series that haven’t received the stable update yet. But with the Open Beta release, the stable update is now closer than before for these two series phones. Let’s find out everything about the OxygenOS 12 Open Beta 1 for OnePlus 7 series and OnePlus 7T series.

The OnePlus 7 series was released in the first half of 2019 with Android 9 and later in the second half, the OnePlus 7T series was released with Android 10.
