OnePlus has announced the commencement of the OxygenOS 12 Closed Beta testing program for the OnePlus Nord 2 devices. The announcement came through a post on the OnePlus Community forums.
Currently, the beta program is limited to OnePlus Nord 2 users in India and does not include the Nord 2 PAC-MAN Edition smartphones. The company is recruiting around 200 people for the closed beta program and states that this time around, the Closed Beta testing phase will be shorter than before and therefore the company will only release a few OxygenOS 12 builds through its duration.
The company plans to recruit 200 OnePlus Nord 2 users for the program. Selected users will have to sign a non-disclosure agreement with the company. In order to be eligible, you need to meet the requirements below:
1. You are using a OnePlus Nord 2 India variant
2. You are an active OnePlus Community member
3. You are willing to regularly communicate and report issues/suggestions to the OnePlus team on Telegram
4. The CBT version is not the stable version, which is still in development. After updating to CBT version, you’ll remain to be patient and tolerate its instability and accept all risks which might be caused by it.
If you meet these requirements and want to participate in the Closed Beta testing program, you can follow this link to the registration page.
As for people wondering about the stable Android 12 update for the OnePlus Nord 2, since the company is just commencing the Closed Beta test now, we can expect to be followed by an Open Beta test and then a stable version release. So we might be looking at a Q2 2022 release date for the stable OxygenOS 12 for the OnePlus Nord 2.
