OxygenOS 11 Finally Comes To OnePlus 8 Series

It hasn’t been too long since we got the latest OS from Android in the market, being the Android 11. The new Android OS by Google didn’t only allow Google phones to get the update the same day, as Android 11 was actually made available for a number of manufacturers for select phones to be allowed to get on the Android 11 train on the same day as its release. One such manufacturer which launched the beta at the same day of Android 11’s release was OnePlus, as the company brought out OxygenOS 11’s beta on top of Android 11 for the OnePlus 8 series - as the update is finally official and is coming in its complete form to OnePlus 8 series users.
