Earlier, OnePlus already had confirmed in the past that both the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T will receive Android 11 software update. However, the company did not share any exact date regarding the Android 11 release for these handsets. As of now, the company’s OnePlus 7 series smartphones, the OnePlus 7, and the OnePlus 7T are yet to receive the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update. These devices had picked the Android 11-based HydrogenOS 11 update in China a few weeks ago. However, in a recent development, OnePlus had stopped the rollout of Android 11-based HydrogenOS 11 for these smartphones due to bugs and issues.
