New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on July 14, 2020) follows:
OnePlus has less than a decade in the smartphone business but it sits well above a number of major names in the industry for a couple or so reasons. Besides the value for money, the well-thought-out OxygenOS skin keeps attracting more people to OnePlus phones.
Think of it as feature-packed stock Android. OnePlus has managed to carve out a set of features based on what the community wants and the end result is an OxygenOS skin that doesn’t overly get into the way of how Google intends Android to work while taking overall functionality a notch higher.
As of this writing, the latest stable version is OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10. It came out three weeks after Google rolled out the stable version to the Pixels. If anything, nothing different is expected with respect to the stable version of OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11.
To ensure this happens, OnePlus has already started testing the beta version of Android 11. The software was released in mid-June 2020 for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, but it isn’t fit for use as a daily driver, just yet.
More OnePlus phones are expected to join the party, more so after the stable version rolls out to the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, probably in September or October 2020. To know if your OnePlus device will get this update, route here.
