OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T, and OnePlus 7T Pro are getting their Android 11-based OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 stable update. There has been no confirmation regarding the regions that will be receiving the update, however, OnePlus has said that the rollout isn’t region-specific and is being randomly pushed out to users. The update comes bundled with the March 2021 Android security patch. OnePlus had earlier rolled out Android 11 updates for these phones, but they came with a few bugs that are expected to be fixed with this update.
The OnePlus community forum had a post on Friday that detailed the changelog for OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T, and OnePlus 7T Pro update. These smartphones are receiving Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update along with March 2021 Android security patch.
In the forum post about the latest OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 update, Abdul B., from OxygenOS Operations, said, “We are starting to push the 220.127.116.11 hotfix build that replaces the previous release. This incremental rollout fixes some unforeseen bugs found in the original Android 11 release and updates the security patch.” To recall, all four phones were reported to be receiving their Android 11 update late last month. The Chinese giant announced that its smartphone series from 2019 will be getting system improvements, camera enhancements, ambient display features, enhanced dark mode, game space improvements, redesigned shelf, and new features to its gallery app. To read about the changelog in detail, head here.
