OnePlus gains Android 15 Beta 1 access for 12 and Open

Who doesn't love a sneakpeek? Google's never been good at keeping any of their stuff under wraps, and they even have a 'beta opt-in' for early access to their newest to come out version of Android.

It used to be limited to just their own Pixel lineups, but recently started to open it up to other manufacturers.

Just recently, it's come out that OnePlus top phones, the 12 and the open, will be among the first to get the Android 15 Beta 1.

Now, it's saying that it will start as of May 16th, but here we are May 20th and I still don't see my 12 being listed among the eligible devices on the page, which it looks like you'll have to do it via a 'local' update only at the moment.  I hope they'll opt to do an OTA like Pixel lines.
