Just yesterday we reported that OnePlus 7 series received stable Android 11 update based on Oxygen OS 11. However, that included the newer OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro. The OTA updates for the regular 7 and 7 Pro devices are always late. Today, this has changed with OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro just now receiving the most awaited stable Oxygen OS 11 build.
Android 11 is now rolling out for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro device globally for North American, EU, and Indian variants. It features all the Oxygen OS 11 goodies like revamped UX for a more comfortable experience, updated stock apps, newer February 2021 security patch level, latest GMS packages from January 2021, and much more. The changelog is quite generic as we have been seeing since OnePlus 8 got Android 11.
Unfortunately, we won’t see the Ambient display (or Always on Display) and the new Google discover. OnePlus 7 series still uses OnePlus Shelf. However, we do see updated camera and features like HEVC codec to reduce video storage size. Game Space gets a major update with several optimizations and features. Checkout the entire changelog from below.
