Even as OnePlus 9 series launch happens in India, the company is rolling out stable Oxygen OS 11, which is based on Android 11, to the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro phones.
The stable version rollout has taken its time to arrive. For, the beta version was released in January with the expectation that the regular version will be out in a few days. But that didn’t happen for various reasons.
But now the Oxygen 11 rollout for the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro has begun.
Upgrade time may be longer
The update brings in its wake dedicated dark mode toggle and enhanced privacy controls.
“This OTA (Over-The-Air) will have a staged rollout. The OTA will be received by a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days after making sure there are no critical bugs,” a post in the OnePlus official forum said.
“Using VPN to download this build might not work as the rollout Is not based on regions and is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices.”
Since this is the upgrade of Android 11 version with many new features, the upgrade time may be longer.
