- When will the OnePlus 9 get Android 12? October 2021 (Estimated)
The OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 9R were announced on March 23, 2021. While the 9 and the 9 Pro will be available in global markets, the 9R is limited to India for now. We expect to see at least two major Android updates arrive on these models — Android 12 later this year, and Android 13 following in 2022.
Days after the phone launched, OnePlus pushed a day-one update to the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. Dubbed Oxygen OS 184.108.40.206.LEx5DA for Indian variants and 220.127.116.11.LEx5AA/BA for global and European models, the update should be available to those who have preordered the devices.
