The Paranoid Android team started working on Paranoid Android Sapphire shortly after Google dropped the Android 12 source code. Late last month, the team released the first builds of Paranoid Android Sapphire based on Android 12 for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. A week later, the team followed up with alpha builds of Android 12 for a few more devices, including the latest OnePlus flagship, Xiaomi Mi 10, and more. And now they have added some new devices to the build roaster.
