According to the company’s latest announcement on the OnePlus Community Forum, the Android 13-based OxygenOS13 OBT program is now available for the Nord CE2 Lite 5G in India. This Open Beta Test program will allow Indian users to experience OxygenOS 13 antecedently.

However, the program is only open for some, as the company currently invites up to 1000 users to attend the beta testing. The users must need to meet the following eligibility requirements to access the beta version:

  • It must be an Indian version of the OnePlus Nord CE2 Lite 5G.
  • Must be an active member of the OnePlus community
  • As the OBT version is susceptible to instability, the eligible user must remain patient to tolerate the instability and risks later caused by the update.

Eligible users needed to apply for the program through these simple steps:

  • Ensure the phone currently runs on firmware version CPH2381 11.A.13.
  • Head to Settings> About device > Click up to date > Click on Top Right Icon > Beta program > Beta > Fill your details > Apply Now. If the Quota gets full, users can wait and apply for the second round.
  • If the update is available after 5-days of application submission and successful review, users can download the update by heading to the Device Settings and then “About device > Download Now”.

This latest Android 13-based OxygenOS 13 update features an entirely new and unique Aquamorph design for OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G. The new design features large fonts, optimized widget design and system icons for better readability and comfort.

The home screen features enlarged folders, allowing users to open the app in these folders through a single tap and page-turning with a swipe.

To edit screenshots, new markup tools have been added to the update. Also, it features media playback controls with an optimized “Quick Settings” experience. The UI layers have been optimized for a fresh and neat visual experience.

The update upgrades the system to Quantum Animation Engine 4.0 with the latest behavior recognition functionality to identify complex gestures for optimized interactions.

The Advanced Encryption Standard encrypts every file with enhanced security. Also, an automatic pixelation functionality has been added for messaging screenshots so the system can automatically identify & pixelate display pictures and names in a screenshot to protect users’ privacy.

For a better gaming experience and stabilized frame rates, the system has been upgraded to HyperBoost GPA 4.0, which consumes less power than earlier versions.

Although all these features seem helpful and great for Android users, the beta build is not completely stable as it may contain bugs, so it must be avoided for the primary devices.
