OnePlus maintains an active channel of beta updates for its users, routinely testing out new features in OxygenOS for its smartphones. While the relative newness of the OnePlus 8 lineup and even the mid-ranger OnePlus Nord earns them most of the company’s attention in terms of receiving Android 11 updates, the Chinese OEM has not forgotten its 2019 flagship smartphones – OnePlus 7/7 Pro and OnePlus 7T/7T Pro.
After several months of assuring, the company recently hinted about the arrival of Android 11 for the four smartphones via the Open Beta branch. And now, OnePlus has finally announced the release of the first Open Beta of Android 11-based OxygenOS for the OnePlus 7 and 7T lineup.
OnePlus mentions brightness adjustment lag, increased power consumption, glitchy Bluetooth audio, and minor anomalies in the stock Gallery app as some of the known bugs of Android 11-based OxygenOS Open Beta 1. However, you can share your feedback on the software and report additional bugs via the Community App to help the software development team iron out any major issues in the final release.
So, if you have a OnePlus 7, 7 Pro, 7T, or 7T Pro running a stable OxygenOS build and wish to try out the Android 11 update, download the appropriate firmware package for your model using the links below and place them in the root directory of the internal storage. You can install the update by heading over to Settings > System Update and choosing “Local Update” from the menu on the top right.
