OnePlus 7/Pro & OnePlus 7T/Pro Android 11 (OxygenOS 11) update may delay for Open Beta testers, as per staff member

OnePlus was among the first OEMs to roll out an Android 11-based custom skin to eligible devices as the OnePlus 8 series bagged the stable release mere weeks after Google’s own Pixel line.

Since then, things have been relatively quiet in the OnePlus camp as users kept complaining of bugs and issues in these OxygenOS 11 builds to the OnePlus 8 devices.

Fast forward to the present day and still, we don’t have a concrete word as to what OnePlus is planning with regards to OxygenOS 11 update to other eligible devices.

Of course, there were unofficial reports that hinted at a possible roadmap for OnePlus devices to Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 but even that didn’t hold any water.

Back in early November, we saw OnePlus wrapping up the OnePlus 7 Android 10 Public Beta program and this signified plans by the company to shift active development to Android 11.

So now what? When is OnePlus planning to roll out Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T devices? Well, we have this post listing everything we know so far.

In response to users who keep asking about the status of Android 11 on their OnePlus 7 devices, a staff member goes to explain that due to the process of migrating the Open Beta channel from Android 10 to Android 11, the release of the next Open Beta update for the devices in question may delay.

Hi friends,

We know many of you are asking about the next Open Beta build, and we want to address those concerns. As we grow near the release of the OxygenOS 11 release, our focus for the Open Beta software branch has shifted entirely to bringing you the latest flavor of Android. This means the next Open Beta build will be slightly delayed according to our maintenance schedule, but it will already be based on Android 11.

We expect to have exciting news for you in the upcoming weeks, please bear with us a bit longer.

Thank you.

It remains unclear just how long this said delay is going to be. But even then, the staff member exudes confidence that when it finally drops, the said Open beta builds will bring OnePlus’ Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T devices.

Earlier, we saw reports that the Android 11 builds were set to hit these devices sometime this month. Whether this development means the update will not arrive this month remains to be seen.

We shall continue to keep an eye on this development and update as and when we get more info so stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
