The most awaited Android 11 update for OnePlus 7 series is out. This is the fist release of Hydrogen OS 11 public beta based on Android 11 for the entire OnePlus 7 series including 7, 7Pro, 7T, and the 7T Pro. We can expect Oxygen OS 11 based Open Beta program to start as soon as tomorrow. So meanwhile, you can download and install H2OS based Android 11 update on the OnePlus 7 series.
If you don’t already know, H2OS is the firmware meant exclusively for the Chinese OnePlus smartphones. The firmware is slightly different from the Oxygen OS 11; which comes installed on the international variants. Due to some bugs, the beta program was slightly pushed forward with no ETA.
