OnePlus put the brakes on the Android 12 update for its 9-series flagships
OnePlus' version of Android 12 for its latest top-end smartphones, the 9 and 9 Pro, has been in the works for a couple of months now, often with help from public beta-testers. However, its ultimate realisation as an 'official' or stable upgrade has gone anything but smooth for the OEM thus far.
This new OS version was presented just a few days ago (on December 7, 2021) with promises of improvements in various areas such as user privacy, as well as the release of its Work-Life Balance feature to its global user-base and the latest version of its Canvas always-on display mode. However, since then, it has been portrayed as extensively bug-ridden in the media and by its users.
Accordingly, OnePlus has contacted Android Police to confirm that it will now pause the roll-out while its software team works to iron out all the bugs discovered in "OxygenOS 12" thus far. The brand, which is now in truth now an off-shoot of the OEM OPPO, aims to start back up with a new iteration of the major software upgrade as soon as possible.
