We also published a tutorial on how to get Oxygen OS 11 onto T-Mobile OnePlus 7 Pro variant by converting it into an international variant.

The North American variants are just now receiving Android 11 starting T-Mobile. The carrier just recently completed testing Android 11 firmware update for OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7T. At the time of writing, Oxygen OS 11 update is already rolling out.
Android 11 bring tons of exciting new features including Oxygen OS 11 and revamped user interface. It focuses on one-hand usability, new Game Space app, updated camera app, and the latest February 2021 security patch level. Unfortunately, it still lacks the most anticipated Ambient display (popularly known as Always-On-Display) and Google Discover Feed feaures. Instead, you get OnePlus Shelf.
