OnePlus has a pretty good record of providing quick Android platform updates to its devices. Though this time with Android 11, the story has been a little different. The company recently talked about it and confirmed the delay in the Android 11 based Oxygen OS 11 update for the OnePlus 7 series devices. Now, OnePlus has confirmed that OnePlus Nord OxygenOS 11 Open Beta build, based on Android 11, will soon be released. This will be the first open beta build for the OnePlus Nord. OnePlus, in a community post, said
Next week, the OnePlus Nord will receive its first OxygenOS 11 Open Beta build. As for the stable release, we’ll collect your feedback from the Open Beta, tune the software build accordingly until it meets our standards, and then conduct staged rollouts.
The announcement is with regards to the Open Beta build only. The company will collect the feedback from Open Beta users and then tune the software accordingly for the stable release. So, users will have to wait for some more time for the stable update. We can expect the company to release a stable OxygenOS 11 update for the smartphone sometime in February.
OnePlus 7 Series devices will soon receive Android 11 based Open Beta Update!
OnePlus also talked about Android 11 update for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series devices. The company says that it worked closely with Qualcomm, and is already running Closed Beta tests for these devices. To those unaware, earlier, the company had cited a data-encryption related issue behind the delay in Android 11 update for OnePlus 7 series devices.
We know our OnePlus 7 and 7T series users are also eager to have a taste of the latest flavor of Android.
We have been working in parallel to release OxygenOS 11 to all these devices at the same time. As you may have heard, when porting Android 11 to the 7 and 7T series, we encountered a data decryption issue in these devices.
We worked closely with Qualcomm and, with their support, we are already running a Closed Beta test.
We expect to release the first OxygenOS 11 Open Beta for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series shortly after.
OnePlus says that it is expecting to release the first OxygenOS 11 Open Beta update for OnePlus 7, and OnePlus 7T series devices shortly after the conclusion of the Closed Beta program. Going by this, we can expect the company to release Open Beta builds for these devices this month itself. A few weeks back, OnePlus shocked its fans and enthusiasts when it revealed that Android 11 update will be the last Android platform update for Nord N10 5G and Nord N100.
