[Download links available] OxygenOS Open Beta 4 update for OnePlus 7 & 7 Pro arrives with "Raise to lower the ringtone" feature, bug fixes & more

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (October 23, 2019) follows:

OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro are two of the phones the company is giving close attention at the moment. The other two are the T variants – OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro.

The former duo arrived earlier this year and being the new kids on the block, they were the first from the company to receive the stable update to Android 10. This is despite the OnePlus 6T joining the Q beta program earlier.

Android Q beta arrived on OnePlus 6T in mid-May 2019

OnePlus begun the Open Beta program for these two last month, tagging along the first public beta version of Android 10. The second Open Beta arrived shortly before the stable rollout kicked off accompanied by fixes for issues with the fingerprint scanner, gestures, and optimized animations, among others.

About two weeks ago, OnePlus rolled out Open Beta 3 to the duo, tagging along the hide option in the Settings for Game Space, Activity mode (Zen Mode), and Work-Life Balance Mode for Indian users, among other optimizations and bug fixes.

Today, Open Beta 4 for OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro is now rolling out and like others before it, you will be getting a new feature alongside several bug fixes and performance optimizations.
