Before an OEM rolls out a stable release of a given firmware to its devices, the build has to undergo a number of very important steps, one of the most critical one being the Beta testing phase.

OnePlus, like many other OEMs, has a pretty elaborate way of testing out its software before it is deemed stable enough. This, through the Closed and Open Beta programs. It is through these tests that various bugs are discovered and addressed.

OnePlus has been working on the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T devices for a couple of weeks now and in the period, we’ve seen two Open Beta builds.

In true Beta build fashion, we’ve seen a number of issues present in these build and some have already been addressed. Some other bugs such as the call audio issue and slow warp charging still persist for some users.

OnePlus is encouraging users who have installed these pre-stable release builds on their OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T devices to report all these bugs and give their feedback.

As it turns out, a whole new batch of users will be giving their negative feedback of these Open Beta builds shortly as they’re facing a pretty serious issue on their devices.

It is now coming to light that users of the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T running the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 Open Beta builds are having issues having their devices stay connected to a WiFi network.

The device keeps disconnecting and connecting to the WiFi network randomly. It is annoying at times.

According to these affected users, the WiFi automatically disconnects every 3-5 mins and starts reconnection after 15-20 seconds. Understandably, this is a pretty annoying occurrence that works against the device’s user experience.

There are a bunch of reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) across various forums and communities online from users who are facing this issue and at the time of writing, there’s a thread on Reddit addressing this issue and its already boasts of 170+ upvotes which means this issue is pretty widespread.

While this issue was present in the initial OxygenOS 11 Open Beta for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T devices, it doesn’t seem to have been addressed as users are still reporting this issue on Open Beta 2.

After updating to open beta 2 my phone constantly gets disconnected from my wifi even when I am in the same room. When I try to reconnect my phone it says ‘saved’ and even after tapping on the wifi name one oneplus 7 doesn’t do anything.
Then it gets connected says no internet then gets connected then disconnects and this process continues.

This issue also seems to be affecting users using various WiFi routers and various configurations like 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz.

Affected users might want to take account of the fact that this is a Beta build and that there are bound to be issues like these.

Best course of action would be to follow OnePlus’ laid-down procedure for reporting bugs in these Open Beta builds and hope that when the stable build rolls out, this issue will be fixed.

We shall continue to keep an eye on this and many other reported bugs so you might want to stay tuned for that. You might also want to check out our OxygenOS 11 bug and issues tracker.
