It looks like the OnePlus software team is having a productive holiday season, as they just released the first Open Beta build of Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 for the OnePlus Nord. It was yesterday when the company shared its Android 11 update roadmap that included the OnePlus Nord and the OnePlus 7/7T series, promising that an OxygenOS Open Beta for the OnePlus Nord would go live this week. Keeping to its word, the Chinese OEM today announced the first public Android 11 beta for the OnePlus Nord.
Since this is the inaugural Open Beta build for the OnePlus Nord, the company has posted full-sized update packages on the announcement thread. You can grab the region-specific flashable ZIP file and use the Local upgrade method to switch from the stable branch to Open Beta (and vice-versa). Although your personal data shouldn’t be affected during upgrading to the Open Beta build, reverting back to the stable channel of OxygenOS will lead to a wipe, so do perform a backup beforehand.

The Android 11 Open Beta release is nearly 3GB in size so make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network before downloading it. OnePlus also recommends you have at least 30% of battery left and 3GB of storage available on your device before you proceed to install the software update.
