OnePlus rolls out another OxygenOS 12 stable update for the OnePlus 8 series and 9R

OnePlus launched the first stable build of OxygenOS 12 based on Android 12 for the OnePlus 8 family and OnePlus 9R back in March. The update reached the European OnePlus 8 variants recently in the form of a newer build (C.15). However, it seems that the software is half-baked and full of errors and inconsistencies, as users have reported a large number of issues after installing the Android 12 update. Now, OnePlus has released a fresh new build of OxygenOS 12 for the OnePlus 9R and OnePlus 8 series, adding the previous update with a few more optimizations and bug fixes.

The new OxygenOS 12 stable update (build number C.16) for OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, 8T and OnePlus 9R have gradually started to roll out across the globe, according to a series of posts on OnePlus Community forums. The update involves the following changes:

  • System
    • [Optimized] power consumption in some scenarios, improved battery life

Although the change log is quite minimalist, we hope there are a ton of changes under the hood to fix the bugs. Some users reportedly encountered SafetyNet bugs after installing this update, but it was automatically resolved after a few reboots. In particular, the underlying Android security patch level is still March 2022.

As with all OxygenOS updates, OnePlus is rolling out the latest OxygenOS 12 build for the OnePlus 9R and OnePlus 8 series in a staged way. This means that the new release will initially be delivered to a limited number of users, with a wider rollout to follow over the next few days. Once the company confirms that there are no major issues with the update, it will be pushed to more users.
