The OnePlus 10 Pro was announced on 31st March 2022, and shipped with OxygenOS 12 (ColorOS base) out of the box. It recently received 2 Developer Previews for Android 13, and now OnePlus has announced a Closed Beta program for OxygenOS 13. Similar to other devices' CB programs (9RT; 7, 7T-series, and Nord 2; original Nord; Nord CE 2), it will be focused solely on the OxygenOS 13 update and thus should last for 2-3 months. Also, it is open only to users located in India. You should not expect any build in this program to be stable or polished. If you're accepted, your role will consist in finding and reporting OS bugs to OnePlus so that any critical issues will be fixed ahead of public release.
Up to 200 users will be accepted into the closed beta program, but they will have to meet a few requirements:
- own an Indian OnePlus 10 Pro
- be comfortable with taking backups and restoring them (as builds might sometimes require a clean flash therefore lead to data loss)
- be willing to constantly communicate and provide feedback to OnePlus' staff on Telegram
- be an active OnePlus Community member
Besides these requirements, OnePlus may also filter applications based on your other parameters in the survey (e.g. how many times you use your phone per day or your current occupation). Users providing exceptional feedback may be eligible to some gifts.
Joining this crew will require you to sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) with OnePlus, meaning you will NOT be allowed to share builds and any content related to it with anyone.
Note: These closed beta builds can be unstable, and we don't recommend applying if you're not experienced in beta testing, or if you're not aware on rollback/downgrade procedures. If you're accepted, OnePlus will provide guides anyway, but we recommend familiarizing yourself with the process beforehand.
