There is nothing to say new about OnePlus and its affordable flagship lineup devices. Last year, the Chinese OEM OnePlus has released a couple of OnePlus 7 and 7T models & OnePlus 7T Pro is one of them. The handset features all the flagship hardware specifications and came with Android 10 on the top of OxygenOS 10.0.4 out-of-the-box. Meanwhile, Google has released its Android 11 Developer Preview 2 recently with so many features and improvements. Now, if you’re waiting for the OnePlus 7T Pro Android 11 R update, then this article is for you.
Apart from Google and Essential, the Chinese brand OnePlus was one of the first OEMs to release OxygenOS 10 (Android 10) for the OnePlus 7/7 Pro models in September 2019. So, the OnePlus 7T Pro users are also thinking to get quite faster updates this year with OxygenOS 11 (Android 11). Though the company follows the same trend to provide Open Beta updates before releasing a stable one, we can expect that the Open Beta program will start within a couple of months most probably.
What’s on Android 11 R?
The Android 11 is the successor version of the Android 10 and it’s the 11th iteration of Android OS that brings plenty of new features and other system improvements. Before the Developer Preview Conference (Google I/O), Google has released its Android 11 Developer Preview update for the Pixel devices and all the Project Treble supported Android devices. At the writing of this article, there are two Developer Preview updates available to download and install.
