T-Mobile OnePlus 7 Pro September security update arrives sans Android 10

OnePlus only needed about 17 days to begin rolling out the stable version of Android 10 to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. The Chinese company became only the first non-Google vendor after Essential Phone to push the stable version of the OS to its devices.

But as you would expect, only those using the non-carrier variants of OnePlus 7 Pro and the standard OnePlus 7 (aka the global market) are receiving the OxygenOS 10 update. For the T-Mobile OnePlus 7 Pro, the wait is still on.

Xiaomi also rolled out Android 10 update to the Redmi K20 Pro on the very same day as the Google Pixels and Essential Phone. However, this was only limited to a small set of K20 Pro users who had successfully enrolled to test early public builds ahead of the full rollout.

This should explain why you haven’t received the stable version of Android 10 on your Redmi K20 Pro to date. Interestingly, unlike before, not even flashing the MIUI ROM manually will grant you access to Android 10 unless you have a verified MIUI beta testing account.

Its been two weeks since the first OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro Android 10 stable updates arrived. However, not even all users of the global variants of the two devices have received the update. Granted, the T-Mobile OnePlus 7 Pro update to Android 10 might still be a little far away.

As you wait for Android 10, the Magenta carrier wants you to have the latest security patches it can offer. While the likes of Samsung Galaxy A50, Galaxy A30, and Galaxy S10 5G have already picked up their October security patches, the new T-Mobile OnePlus 7 Pro update installs September patches.

The update bumps the OxygeOS version to 9.5.11.GM31CB and weighs 312.2MB, which should bring more than mere security patches, but not Android 10.

Even though not the latest security patch, it should be a big deal for T-Mobile users of the device considering that it was stuck on June security updates that rolled out in, well, June 2019. But since the rollout is airborne, it may take several days before every T-Mobile unit gets the OTA.
