OnePlus is apparently struggling to deliver the Android 13 update to its users. The company has shared an updated OxygenOS 13 beta roll out schedule on its community forum, finally providing an ambiguous target release date for the remaining devices that include the OnePlus 10T 5G.

Jump to:

Two months after Google started shipping Android 13 to Pixel devices, Samsung has become the second OEM to recently release OneUI 5.0 based on Android 13. In contrast, OnePlus has not released any final build of OxygenOS 13 yet. All the firmwares it had rolled out before is on beta, which means users who plan to install will follow a laborious step-by-step process that is available on its forum.

Which OnePlus smartphone will receive the Android 13 OS update

Based on OnePlus' posting, the next on the pipeline that will receive the major software are the OnePlus 10T, Nord 2T and Nord CE 2 Lite—which all are 5G capable models. Unfortunately, OnePlus didn't mention the exact date aside from a vague estimate of Q4 2022.

According to OnePlus, devices exclusive to carriers will be determined by the provider itself. At the same time, no details were revealed as regards the Nord N200 and Nord N300 that are exclusive to the US market.

When will the stable OxygenOS 13 build be released

OnePlus has not revealed the release date for the stable builds of the OxygenOS 13 that were already shipped to users. It is safe to say that OnePlus 10 Pro users may see the definitive version of the software sometime in December this year. This puts it in line with OxygenOS 12 release for the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro in December last year.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
