The OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T may be older, but the Chinese OEM never settles, so here’s a new update for the phones. The first open beta version of OxygenOS 11 is ready. Open Beta was already available for some phones like the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 7 series. It is based on Android 11, so wait for the latest features and improvements. The last update we mentioned for the OnePlus 6 series was Oxygen OS 10.3.0, but it was in December 2019. The OxygenOS 11 is the latest from OnePlus.
As with most open beta releases ready, this OxygenOS version 11 is actually an initial release. It’s supposed to be out next month, but OnePlus developers are quick.
This is only the first beta version, so it is even less stable. Those who will download and install the build must first do a full system backup. It is highly recommended so that you do not lose any important data.
The update will be available via OTA for those on OBT builds. The complete upgrade package will be available to you. You can also check the Links (edit) provided by OnePlus.
The changelog says that the device will be updated to OxygenOS 11 version. It will offer a new visual UI design that can offer a better experience. You may notice new gameplay tools for convenient Fnatic mode changes.
For game notifications, you can choose any of these: text only, notice, Y block. You can also use the new quick reply feature in a small window for popular apps like Telegram, WhatsApp, and Instagram. A new miscontact prevention feature has been added.
OnePlus 6 phones can also benefit from the optimization and updated camera UI. Ambient Display gets the new Insight clock style and Canvas feature. A shortcut for dark mode and a new shelf interface design can also be expected.
