Android 14 public has been released and tested on Pixel as well as non-Pixel devices with many customization and modification options. OnePlus also released a new Android 14 Beta Program update for the flagship OnePlus 11 smartphone owners on May 10. It will also be released with OxygenOS 14 software for more OnePlus devices in the future. But the question here is which OnePlus device will be the first to come preloaded with Android 14 and OxygenOS 14.
For your information, OnePlus may be the best at keeping its phones and tablets updated with the latest version of Android. Still, it is usually not the first to launch devices with the newest version of Android installed out of the box.
Every year, OnePlus launches its smartphones with the latest version of Android out-of-the-box. For example, the first OnePlus phone to launch running Android 12 was the OnePlus 10 Pro, which hit retail shelves in January last year.
In the starting, OnePlus used to have a gap of a few months between the release of a new version of Android and the launch of the first OnePlus device to run that new OS version out of the box.
This year, owners of OnePlus smartphones and tablets have been waiting for the Android 14 and OxygenOS 14 updates. The OnePlus 11 series is more or less guaranteed to get this update before any other OnePlus smartphone, but which OnePlus device will get Android 14 and OxygenOS 14 first?
At the moment, there is no definite answer, only speculation: OnePlus 12
The best bet, we expect, is next year’s OnePlus 12 series, which means we can look forward to a OnePlus first device with Android 14-based OxygenOS 14 pre-installed around ten to twelve months from now. However, we suggest tempering your expectations until Android 14 is available for existing OnePlus devices. Read more: Everything about OnePlus 12
