Per the official forums. It seems like we'll be receiving Android 12 officially in the coming months, of course nearly a year late. Sadly, OnePlus/OPPO has indicated that we won't be getting Android 13. Hopefully we'll see some device specific changes that will help round off any remaining bugs over in the custom Android 12 ROM's floating around.

The International ROM is now available on the Oxygen Updater app.

Mind you, the current beta is targeted at the India variant of our device. But if you're feeling intrepid you can manually flash the partitions inside fastbootd and forgo the india.img.

I have a different OP7Pro (gm1915) and found it on the Oxygen Updater app found on the Google Play Store. In the settings it says update method and picked Open Beta (full) Then I just followed the directions on how to flash it.

I don't know if it's available for your variant but if it is, it would be on that app.

The updater app is showing the Indian variant, not the global variant, I compared the files...
Does it work to install the indian variant on a global phone? any issues with some network providers?
