OnePlus is pretty slow when it comes to rolling out major Android updates. Given that the OnePlus 7 series recently received an update to OxygenOS 11, the OnePlus 6 series may have to wait a little longer.
The OnePlus 6 was launched in May 2018 with Android 8.1 out of the box, while the OnePlus 6T will launch in November 2019 with Android 9 out of the box. While OnePlus is known for providing its devices with Android updates for three years, the OnePlus 6 is about to receive its last major update. On the other hand, the OnePlus 6T is eligible for two other major updates.
Here’s what we know about the release date of the Android 11 update for the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T.
What’s new in the Oxygen OS 11 update?
Oxygen OS is based on Android 11, which brings a lot of good things with it. OxygenOS 11 now features improved one-handed operation, newer Always On Display screens combined with Insight AOD, and a more immersive user interface. Android 11 includes features like device management, media control, chat bubbles, and improved privacy and security.
When will the OnePlus 6/6T receive the Android 11update?
Yes, both the devices are expected to receive the Android 11 update. Unfortunately, there is no ETA on when these devices will be testing Android 11 beta. While this will be the last major update for the OnePlus 6, we can expect the OnePlus 6T to continue for another year with a final update to Android 12.
Looking back at previous release cycles, when the OnePlus 5/5T received a stable Android 10 update in May, however, it stopped due to numerous bugs affecting the system. This could be the reason why there is no official news on what and when we can expect an update to OxygenOS 11 for the OnePlus 6 series.
However, things seem to be different in OnePlus’ home country. A blog post on OnePlus’ official China forum suggests that the public beta of OxygenOS 11 could be launched for the OnePlus 6 series by the end of August.
The OnePlus 6 and 6T are currently running on a February security patch based on OxygenOS 10, which was recently released in March.
- Android security patch updated to 2021.02.
- Update of the GMS package to 2020.12
- Fix known problems and improve system stability
Looking at how the OnePlus 6 lineup has been treated to delayed updates, we can expect the OxygenOS 11 public betas to likely roll out sometime between May and November. While OnePlus 6 users will soon lose support, nothing can be said about the OnePlus 6T. Considering that the OnePlus 6T has received only one of the three major updates, we and its users hope that the rays of Android 12 shine on the device.
We will continue to update this article as we receive updates on the OnePlus 6 series.
