OnePlus, finally available Android 13 for six additional models


Android 13 is now available on a further six OnePlus models, which will be updated to the latest version of the well-known robot's operating system over the next few days.

More correctly, OnePlus devices will not receive Android 13, but an in-house developed variant of Google's operating system: OxygenOS 13. Accessing this important update will be OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, 8T, 9R, 9RT and 10R.

Although the simultaneous involvement of six models (some dating back to 2020) may seem unusual, it was OnePlus itself to confirm its veracity with a series of dedicated posts.

Not only that: according to what has been said, each smartphone will receive a different version of OxygenOS 13. However, depending on the smartphone model involved, the differences could be minimal .

Purely by way of example, here are the new features introduced for the OnePlus 9RT.
