Download: OnePlus 9RT receives long-awaited stable Android 12 update with OxygenOS 12

After a brief beta testing period, the stable OxygenOS 12 update atop Android 12 is now rolling out for the OnePlus 9RT. Given how long that the 9RT community has waited for the update, this is a big bonus, especially as Google’s Android 13 beta phase has recently reached the final milestone.

As per a number of user reports on the OnePlus Community forums, the OxygenOS 12 stable update for the OnePlus 9RT is up for grabs in the form of software version C.04. At around 5GB in size, this is a fairly large update, and considering that Android 12 includes some fairly substantial new features along with OxygenOS 12 visual and performance tweaks, it should really be expected. The release also bumps the Android security patch level to July 2022.
