The last T-series phone from OnePlus called the 8T launched with Android 11 out of the box with the latest OxygenOS 11 firmware update. It recently received an OTA update with build OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 with several new features and bug fixes. However, that update was soon put on hold because it introduced more bugs than it fixed.

Most importantly, it fixed the the issue where the media player or videos may pause abnormally. Others are general bug fixes and optimizations. Checkout the entire changelog below.
