Earlier last month, OnePlus released the stable version of Android 12 for the entire OnePlus 8 series. It featured the most anticipated Oxygen OS 12 with all the goodies. Soon after, the firm released yet another hotfix OTA update for the OnePlus series with the build Oxygen OS 12 C.15.
Amidst all of this, OnePlus seemed to have forgotten the EU variants. OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, and 8T European variants were still stuck on the previous Oxygen OS 11 firmware, for a long time with no sign of a software update. Maybe because the software update wasn’t quite stable and needed some tuning, as reported in our downgrade tutorial.
Today, OnePlus finally released stable Oxygen OS 12 C.15 build for the EU variants. The software update includes the first Android 12-based C.11 and the latest C.15 patches. Here, download Oxygen OS 12 C.15 build for OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, 8T for (EU variants) with Android 12.
The latest update features all the Android 12 goodies like the new wallpaper-based theme engine, Privacy dashboard, Material You design, along with the latest Oxygen OS 12 firmware changes and updated OnePlus apps. Check out the complete changelog below.
Furthermore, you get Oxygen OS 12 native features like a custom version of Material You design, Dark Mode with 3 adjustable levels, improved Shelf, Canvas AOD, and much more. Checkout the complete changelog and also download OxygenOS 12 from below.
