OnePlus Android 11 updates for devices
In a message on the official OnePlus forum, the manufacturer says which smartphones will get Android 11. The company starts with the OnePlus Nord and will already release an open beta for this smartphone next week. This is a test version that you can install on your Nord, to try all the innovations of Android 11. The full and final release will be released later.
Users of the OnePlus 7 (Pro) and 7T (Pro) can also expect an Android 11 update, although they have to wait a little longer. During development, the company ran into technical problems, but these have since been resolved. OnePlus will release a beta soon and does not announce when the final update will be released.
If you have an older OnePlus 6 / 6T (from 2018), you can also get started with Android 11. The company will share more information at a later date, but will update the phones. This is neat as Android 11 is said to be the third major Android upgrade for the OnePlus 6 phones. The devices appeared with Android 8.1 (Oreo) and already received updates to version 9.0 (Pie) and 10. Finally, the company will provide the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and N100 with an update.
