OnePlus 9R Forums

As always, the update is rolling out in waves, so you may not see the update on your device just yet. However, if you’d rather not wait for the device to reach your device, you can skip the wait and sideload the incremental OTA or full OTA zip. The incremental OTA can only be applied if your device is running the OxygenOS update; otherwise, you’ll need to download the full OTA zip to update to the latest release.

    The OnePlus 9R offers last year's flagship hardware at a more affordable price.
