[Updated] OxygenOS 11 (Android 11) final developer preview to release on August 10 ahead of Open Beta update, OnePlus CEO confirms
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on August 04, 2020) follows:
OnePlus is known for its dedication to provide device owners with timely updates on the regular. OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, for instance, are among the few non-Google devices currently trialing Android 11 developer preview.
The duo bagged the OxygenOS 11 update a few weeks ago and as the name suggests, this version is not meant for general users, but it comes in handy for developers of apps that run on OnePlus devices.
This way, devs can prepare their apps in advance to be compatible with the new OS such that when the public version arrives, there are no major app compatibility issues. As it stands, OnePlus seems confident that devs have done their part and soon the OxygenOS 11 update will go public.
According to a post published in the OnePlus community by CEO Pete Lau, OnePlus says those testing the developer preview version of OxygenOS 11 will get their final build on August 10. Soon after the company irons out all major bugs, the software will be pushed to the Open Beta channel.
Today, I wanted to drop you a note to let you know about some exciting developments with OxygenOS. On August 10, we’ll be releasing the final developer’s preview build of OxygenOS 11 to give a small group of our most technically-inclined community members a chance to start testing out some of the new features and share feedback with our team. Then once we’ve squashed most of the big bugs and improved overall stability, we’ll release a full open beta to let even more of you try it out.
It is from here that the rest of the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro fraternity will be able to try the new OS on a wider scale, but still in beta. Unfortunately, no one knows when exactly the said OxygenOS 11 Open Beta update will arrive.
Perhaps this detail will be made available when the final Android 11 developer preview build arrives next week. We will keep an eye on the developments and let you know about it.
