OnePlus 9RT has officially joined the list of devices that will be getting the Android 13-based OxygenOS 13 testing program through the Closed Beta. It’s a surprising move as any other OnePlus device wasn’t expected to get the OxygenOS 13 Beta Update at least this month as the OnePlus 10 Pro had just got the OxygenOS 13 Open Beta.
Although it has only been a few days since the OnePlus 10 Pro received the Open Beta, within a week, the OxygenOS 13 Beta program is extended to the OnePlus 9RT. As it’s a closed beta program, only a limited number of users will be able to apply.
Changelog for the OxygenOS 13 Closed Beta program
As for the changes and new features, OxygenOS 13 will come with aquamorphic design, which is the most significant change in terms of UI. The other features include better HyperBoost for gaming, considerably better privacy, and more.
OxygenOS 13 Closed Beta for OnePlus 9RT will be available for a limited number of users. The exact number is 200 seats for the OnePlus 9RT handset. This means that only the first 200 users will be able to join the Android 13 Closed Beta program.
The OxygenOS 13 Closed Beta for OnePlus 9RT will be the first Android 13 Beta build for the device and minor issues can be accompanied by a few major issues. In the coming months, OnePlus is expected to release an open beta program with better stability.
How to apply for the OxygenOS 13 Closed Beta program
If you’re a OnePlus 9RT user in India and wish to participate in the OxygenOS 13 Closed Beta, you’ll be able to apply for the beta program. For applying for the Android 13 Closed Beta, you should visit the beta application link and then fill in the required details. Once you’ve submitted the application, OnePlus will then verify it and if you successfully land one of the 200 sets, you’ll be receiving the update over the air. You can manually check for updates by heading over to Settings -> About device -> Up to date or Available Updates.
As far as our end goes, that’s about it. The information required can be found on the official OnePlus community page.
