OnePlus recently released an OxygenOS 12 update for those who love to stay ahead of the game. That’s what the company’s tagline says, “Never Settle.” The Android 12-based OxygenOS 12 debuted this month, marking the first major OS upgrade following ColorOS and OxygenOS codebases merger. However, after reports from OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro users complaining about updates, it had to be halted. Fortunately, thanks to China’s fast reaction time, these glitches were quickly wrangled under control, and a better upgrade was promised.
OnePlus has restarted the rollout, this time with a new update. The rollout is done progressively again, which means it will reach a small number of OnePlus 9 users before expanding to the rest of the community. The previous upgrade affected several aspects, including mobile data connection and notifications, among others, to the unaccustomed.
OnePlus, in its official forum post, stated it has “focused on addressing the most-reported issues recently.” However, it also recognizes that the new release does not address all reported concerns, such as the auto-fill feature in Chrome and Google’s camera app’s temporary loss of access to Ultra HD 48MP primary and auxiliary cameras. However, a subsequent update will fix these issues, according to OnePlus.
What’s New with OxygenOS 12 Patch for OnePlus Users?
The latest update, LE2111_11_C.39 for the OnePlus 9 and LE2121_11_C.39 for the OnePlus 9 Pro, improves fingerprint recognition, optimizes system power consumption, and fixes screen tearing issues. Furthermore, the improvement in startup speed of the camera app and rear camera picture effect. The new Android version will also include battery life improvements and a new December security patch.

Samsung has also halted its One UI 4 release, based on Android 12 in South Korea, following a slew of critical bugs and concerns reports. The new update, which fixed most problems, was subsequently released.
