OnePlus has rolled out another open beta update of its OxygenOS. And this time, it’s meant for OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro users. The beta version update called 19/9 brings October security patch and fixes the flashback issue with the front camera. This is the second round of beta update in less than a few weeks for the 7T series. The major difference being the availability of the latest security patch from Android.
It’s worth pointing out, these open beta updates are based on Android 10. And for those waiting for the Android 11 version updates, their wait is unlikely to go on long. The company has already offered it for users in China, so it’s a matter of time before India gets it. The brand has already committed to the end of year timeline with an Android 11 update for the 7T series. So, we’re hoping OnePlus live up to that promise.
Beta updates, as you might be aware, is not part of the public rollout. So, you specifically have to sign up with OnePlus for its OxygenOS Beta Program. After this, you need to attach your device to the rollout cycle. This way, the company will know that your device is eligible for the beta update. And once it’s ready, developers will get access to the upcoming version. They can test their apps and see if its works as expected and share feedback with the company accordingly.
