A new Android 12 update for OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro has been announced. The company had released the firmware earlier this month, but came under flak from users who reported that the build was buggy. A report by a blog indicated that the issues were caused by the merging of ColorOS and OxygenOS, which is now practically the one and the same.
A week ago, the Chinese OEM pulled the OTA update, effectively suspending the rollout. The brand also provided instructions in order to assist users to roll back to OxygenOS 11. It promised to re-release a new update after fixing the reported issues.
