OnePlus Nord OxygenOS 12 is now rolling out to all users in India

OnePlus Nord is apparently on its way to becoming a brand for the company with back-to-back launches, but it all started with the OnePlus Nord, the original phone in the series. If you are a OnePlus Nord user, you will be happy to know that the company has now started rolling out the stable version of Android 12 sometime after beta testing. The OnePlus Nord is now receiving stable OxygenOS 12, bringing new features such as a new visual design, improved dark mode, and OnePlus Shelf.

In April, OnePlus began open beta 2 testing for the OnePlus Nord in India. This was the last stage of testing, so the stable release was imminent. However, OnePlus took a short time to finalize the stable version for Nord users in India. OnePlus said the new OxygenOS 12 for OnePlus Nord is only rolling out to users in India. He added that since the rollout process in the European Union requires additional validation steps, OxygenOS 12 for northern users in that region will be released “as soon as possible.”

The OxygenOS 12 is available both for those using Android 11 and for those using the beta version. The stable release means that bugs that were spotted in the latest beta have been fixed. OnePlus even listed some of them, such as the phone’s inability to summon Google Assistant when “Ok, Google” was said. As this is a stable release, you are unlikely to encounter any issues.

While most of the pesky bugs have been fixed, OnePlus said via its community forum post that the stable version also has some bugs and the next update will aim to fix them. For example, the display of some pages in Settings will be different from the system, the camera may crash when taking Portrait mode photos, and the phone screen will freeze in specific scenarios when calling, among others.

OnePlus said the OxygenOS 12 for the OnePlus Nord is around 3GB, so make sure your phone has enough free space to download the update. Next, you must meet certain requirements before proceeding with the update process. First, you need to make sure that your phone’s battery level is at least 30%. Second, your phone needs to be connected to the internet, probably one that offers high-speed downloading.

How to update

Since OnePlus is rolling out OxygenOS 12 as an OTA update, you will need to check whether it is available for you or not. To do this, go to the settings of your OnePlus Nord and then go to system updates. Your phone should start searching for OxygenOS 12 automatically, but if it doesn’t, you can search manually. You may not see the update. This is because the software is rolled out in a phased manner, so it may take some time to reach you.
