OxygenOS 12 update for OnePlus 7 and 7T series
It is good to see the mobiles getting the Android 12 update, even though it arrives quite late. As you may remember, Google announced Android 12 over 8 months ago, in 2021.
The new firmware includes various features such as Work-Life Balance that lets you switch between the profiles from the Quick Settings. The new Canvas Always-On Display (Canvas AOD) supports various styles of lines and colors for a personalized lock screen experience. The gallery app supports 2-finger pinch gesture, and can recognize the best quality pictures automatically. It crops thumbnails based on the picture’s contents.
The OxygenOS 12 update for OnePlus 7 and 7T series also brings an improved Shelf, a new Smart Battery engine, Dark mode with three adjustable levels, and more.
Interestingly, the OxygenOS 12 update does not include the latest security patches for the OnePlus 7 phones. XDA reports that the update ships with the August 2022 Security Patch from Google.
The version number of the Oxygen OS 12 update for the OnePlus 7 series are as follows:
- OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro – GM1911_11.H.28
- OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro – HD1901_11.F.16
