latest oxygen os update for oneplus 8 and 8 pro

Last year, OnePlus rolled out stable Oxygen OS 11 firmware update based on Android 11 for the former flagship OnePlus 8 series. While the OnePlus 8T launched with Oxygen OS 11 out of the box, the 8 and 8 Pro devices had to go through and intensive Open Beta program before finally receiving stable Android 11 update. Today, the OnePlus 8 series is finally getting new OxygenOS builds in India, EU, and North America.

The update is currently live in India and will soon extend to Europe and the United States variants. The OTA brings several bug fixes, performance improvements, and the latest March 2021 security patch level. Checkout the complete changelog below.
