The Android 12 beta is up for select devices, most notably for select Pixel and OnePlus devices. We’ve already discussed the update for Pixel phones, but now OnePlus has completely detailed the Android 12 beta for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro.
While this is awesome news, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. There are some known issues and things to be aware of before flashing, listed below for your convenience.
- All data will be cleared while flashing the build
- Video call function is not available
- Fingerprint unlock and face unlock are unavailable
- Certain UI screens look less than desirable
- Some apps may not function as expected
- System stability issues
If you’re ready to load up and flash Android 12 to your OnePlus 9 or OnePlus 9 Pro, follow the link below. The process couldn’t be any easier on OnePlus devices. Simply download the zip file to your OnePlus device, then follow the instructions inside of the Settings > System > System Updates menu.
Update: OnePlus has apparently pulled these downloads, as many are experiencing bricked devices. If you have a bricked device, it looks like you’ll need to flash a bit of software from Qualcomm in order to downgrade back to Android 11. But hey, these things happen! Hopefully not too, too many people were affected.
Post from OnePlus’ forum.
I’ve temporarily removed the download links based on the feedback from users in this thread. I’m sharing the feedback with the software team so they can look into it in the morning at HQ.
We’ll keep you posted.
