OnePlus is known for providing one of the smoothest and near stock Android experience with its Oxygen OS firmware. Back in October 2020, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 8T with Android 11 out of the box. The software is based on OnePlus’ latest OxygenOS 11. The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro also go their stable Android 11 build. It is not time for the manufacturer to focus on older Android devices like the OnePlus 7 series, the Nord series and the OnePlus 6 and 5.
OxygenOS 11, based on Android 11, provides a much better user experience, and this has left old OnePlus users wondering when they will receive the Android 11 update. It comes with features like Enhanced Dark Mode, Zen Mode 2.0, Smart Gallery, New Sans Font, Revamped UI, and more. As per reports, the smartphones from OnePlus 6 and later models will receive Android 11 OTA update.
Here is when you OnePlus phone will receive Android 11 update.

This is what OnePlus staff said about Android 11 for OnePlus 7 and 7T series:
We know our OnePlus 7 and 7T series users are also eager to have a taste of the latest flavor of Android. We have been working in parallel to release OxygenOS 11 to all these devices at the same time. As you may have heard, when porting Android 11 to the 7 and 7T series, we encountered a data decryption issue in these devices. We worked closely with Qualcomm and, with their support, we are already running a Closed Beta test. We expect to release the first OxygenOS 11 Open Beta for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series shortly after.
It may take some time for the update to arrive on carrier devices as OnePlus Said, “The above schedule may vary for models purchased from our carrier partners, including Verizon, T-Mobile, EE, and others.”
