OnePlus announces OxygenOS 14 Closed Beta for OnePlus Nord 3

While Google is planning to release stable Android 14 soon, other OEMs are also working on bringing Android 14 to their devices. And OnePlus is one of the first few OEMs to start testing Android 14 on its devices via OxygenOS 14.

After OnePlus 11, OnePlus has now announced Android 14 based OxygenOS 14 closed beta testing for the OnePlus Nord 3. It is a budget mid range phone so it is good that OEMs are thinking other than flagship devices.

This is a closed beta, so don’t expect the official version of OxygenOS 14 to arrive anytime soon. After finishing the closed beta, the company will release the open beta, which will take at least one more month for testing.

OnePlus announced that the OxygenOS 14 closed beta for the OnePlus Nord 3 is currently live in India. And there is no information about other regions yet. Since it is a closed beta, only limited users can participate in OxygenOS 14 closed beta testing. OnePlus is accepting the first 500 users.

If you want to test the OxygenOS 14 closed beta to experience the new Android 14 and OxygenOS 14 features, you can try your luck by registering for the Closed Beta program. You must meet certain requirements in order to apply.

As this is a closed beta and the very first test build for OnePlus Nord 3, there will be some issues maybe even major bugs. OnePlus has shared some known issues, but there could be more than these issues.
