Android 11 came to the market a few weeks ago, as the official version of Android’s latest update came to several OEMs on the day of release, instead of just being reserved to Google smartphones - like it used to be back in the days. It was surprising to see manufacturers put up early betas of their own skins on top of Android 11 the same day of the release. One such manufacturer that has been on top of their game in terms of software updates is OnePlus.
OnePlus was one of the first manufacturers to announce its own beta of OxygenOS 11 on top of Android 11 the same day it was released - to provide new content and features for its audience. We also heard recently - a few days back - that the official release of Android 11 was finally available on OnePlus 8 series smartphones, and the latest OnePlus 8T that just arrived to the market also now ships with the Android 11 pre-installed.
Now if you’re a OnePlus 7 series owner, then don’t worry too much, as the Chinese manufacturer has got you fully covered. A company spokesperson talked with a reliable source in the tech world, and mentioned that all the OnePlus 7 phones are going to get Android 11 in December - which is great and talks down all rumours that said that the update wasn’t coming anytime before the year 2021.
The OnePlus 7 series consists of 4 different phone models, being the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro, and the 7T and 7T Pro - if you exclude the 5G models. OnePlus usually promises 3 years of direct OS upgrades, and considering the phones were of 2019, they still got 2 more years ahead of them. As of the OnePlus Nord, nothing is heard as of yet, but we can expect the Android 11 update to come in the first quarter of 2021.
It’s great to see OnePlus pushing out the new Android 11 update to all its phones when other manufacturers still haven’t gotten on the train yet - like Samsung is still more or less stuck at Android 10 for all of its phones - even the latest flagships. Kudos to OnePlus for this!
