OnePlus 9 and Pro have begun receiving the Android 12 update in the form of OxygenOS 12, making it the third major company to roll out the latest version of the operating system after Google and Samsung. In November, Samsung’s Galaxy S21 smartphones received the Android 12 update with the company’s One UI 4 interface.

The upgrade to Android 12 is rolling out to users in the form of an over-the-air (OTA) update, as spotted by XDA Developers.
