As a part of this Closed Beta Test (CBT), participants will be required to sign an NDA and be willing to flash builds that require a clean flash, which wipes the entire data, so it’s advisable to not install the beta firmware on your primary device. Also, remember that beta builds often contain bugs that hamper the user experience.
If you are still interested, you’ll need to meet the following requirements to be eligible for the CBT:
- You are using a OnePlus 8 series or OnePlus 8T device
- You are an active OnePlus Community member
- You are willing to regularly communicate and provide feedback to the OnePlus team on Telegram
- The CBT version is not the official version, which is still in developing and testing. After updating to CBT version, please be patient and tolerate its instability and accept all risks which might be caused by it
If you meet these requirements, you can apply here, but you might want to be quick if you can’t wait to check out Android 12 and OxygenOS 12 since OnePlus currently only has 200 slots for the OnePlus 8T users and 200 slots between the 8 and 8 Pro owners.
OnePlus has promised to provide gifts to the best performers, and since the company is calling it a “short-term Closed Beta Project,” you can expect it to announce an Open Beta program for the 8, 8 Pro, and 8T in the coming months.
