OnePlus 7T kernel source code goes live ahead of global availability
OnePlus has grown its popularity across the globe in a rather short period of time thanks to its efforts of launching smartphones that greatly disrupt the market with what they offer.
At the heart of OnePlus devices is top of the line specs and impeccable designs that come our way at very affordable prices when compared to the competition. The latest to join the party is OnePlus 7T, which was unveiled in India on September 26.
The 7T is expected to start selling in global markets across Europe and North America beginning October 10. In the latter market, T-Mobile, the telco that has been carrying OnePlus devices since the 6T, has already discontinued the OnePlus 7 Pro in anticipation of the arrival of the 7T.
Interestingly, the older OnePlus 6T is still available for purchase through the Magenta carrier. Nonetheless, the OnePlus 7T, like others before it, more so the OnePlus 7 Pro, offers great value for money for premium smartphone enthusiasts.
The device packs in some of the best cameras at its price range, a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor and, as expected, is powered by OxygenOS 10 based on the latest and greatest from Google – Android 10 OS.
Besides Google and Xiaomi, OnePlus devices are some of the most developer-friendly smartphones out there. And ahead of the global availability of the new OnePlus 7T, the Chinese device maker has come out to reiterate its commitment to support the developer community.
OxygenOS has been growing and evolving with every release. Currently one of the top-rated OEM software, and now with the release of OnePlus 7T, OxygenOS is expected to only become better and better. Just like Android, with its welcoming and open nature, we hope to support our brilliant developer community that has evolved alongside Android.
The company has already published the kernel sources for the OnePlus 7T on its GitHub page to allow folks who wish to get geeky with tweaks they wish to make to the software in order to customize their experience on the device.
In the announcement post published in the official OnePlus forums, the company says it’s excited to see what the developer community will create for the OnePlus 7T, citing its continued commitment to providing the tools needed to achieve the unique experience you desire on your device.
We know how customization can make a lot of difference when it comes to using your phone. We’re committed to providing the tools you need to make your experience unique and better tailored to your specific needs.
OnePlus’ commitment to support devs doesn’t come as a surprise. The company recently promised to continue supporting developers who would wish to come up with Android 10-based custom ROMs for the OnePlus 3 and 3T – two devices that will not be officially updated to the newest OS from Google.
