OnePlus was among the first OEMs to roll out Android 11 to its devices as the OnePlus 8 series got updated to OxygenOS 11 about a month after Android 11’s official unveiling.

However, other OnePlus devices haven’t faired quite as well when it comes to getting Android 11-based builds. We’ve since seen the OnePlus Nord getting Open Beta 1 builds and the OnePlus 7 and 7T getting the same, albeit in China.
