Android 12 beta downloads available now for OnePlus, Xiaomi, OPPO and more As Google launched the first public beta of Android 12 this week, the beta release was also released for various Android manufacturers' phones globally.
As one would expect, all Google Pixel models from Pixel 3 upwards got the Android 12 beta release (which also means that original Pixel and Pixel 2 series have noe both reached their end of life and wont get Android 12). Xiaomi released the beta for handful of its most recent high-end models, including Xiaomi Mi 11i - see full list of Xiaomi models with Android 12 beta.

Recently released Asus Zenfone 8 got Android 12 beta, too. Also selected Chinese manufacturers, such as TCL, OPPO and ZTE released the beta for some of their high-end models.

One of the bigger manufacturers among the beta team is OnePlus: their recent flagship pair OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro (read our OnePlus 9 Pro review) got the Android 12 beta, too. Unfortunately, some of the OnePlus users have already reported various problems with the beta. Most notably, some OnePlus 9 phones have been stuck into infinite reboot loop after the update. OnePlus quickly released instructions on how to downgrade back to Android 11.



Obviously, the Android 12 first beta is meant for developers and tech enthusiasts only - the official, stable, consumer-ready version of Android 12 is expected to launch in September 2021. There's a growing list of phones expected to get the Android 12 once it launches.

Meanwhile, we try to keep track on Android 11 rollout.
