You have a OnePlus smartphone and you are wondering when you will receive Android 11. Here is the estimated update schedule.
The OnePlus 8T was the first smartphone, apart from Google Pixel, to be sold natively with Android 11, thus confirming the very good responsiveness of OnePlus regarding Android updates. Since then, the OnePlus 8 series has also been updated and the manufacturer is expected to run this version on its older and more modest ranges.
OnePlus’ provisional calendar
If you have a smartphone from the brand, rest assured, Android 11 should arrive soon, at least in beta. This is the case, for example, with the OnePlus North, which will receive OxygenOS 11 in open beta from next week. This test version will allow OnePlus to collect enough information to improve its copy until it reaches its quality standards and thus deploy the final version of the software.
The OnePlus 7 and 7T (and their “Pro” versions) will receive Android 11 simultaneously. However, OnePlus has encountered some data encryption issues with this release and is working closely with Qualcomm to resolve the issue. As soon as this is resolved, the Open Beta version will be made available to everyone.
Then come the OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T, OnePlus Nord N10 5G and OnePlus Nord N100. For the moment, no date has been communicated for these four smartphones and we will have to stay tuned for the next announcements to know when they will be updated to Android 11.
Little visible novelties
Recall that Android 11 brings its share of new features, but that many of them affect the system itself more than functionality. For example, we find a unique permission system, secure storage, better keyboard animations, support for new formats for images or even improved latency.
Note, however, that OnePlus has revised its interface to make it more ergonomic and that the entire notification system has been redesigned. We never say no to these kinds of changes.
