OnePlus’ track record of providing the promised updates has been fairly respectable and it is now seeding the Open Beta 1 of OxygenOS 12 for the OnePlus Nord 2 that was announced last year. OxygenOS 12 is OnePlus’ take on 12 and has features such as mic and camera indicators, better apps permission handling and more.

The announcement was made via OnePlus Community as per which, the company is looking for feedback from users regarding the new update. The update comes in at 4.57GB and is available for all Nord 2 models, including the Pac-Man Special Edition. However, OnePlus states that the upgrade may remove some of the features on Pac-Man Edition devices. Hence, it has recommended Pac-Man model owners skip this update and install the new version at a later stage.
