OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, along with the OnePlus 8T, are the only OnePlus devices that currently run OnePlus’ new controversial Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 update.

Of course, being an entirely new skin with little to do with its predecessor, there were bound to be a few issues. And boy have there been issues with OxygenOS 11!

That said, OnePlus is among the more consumer-facing brand we have today and these issues have been steadily acknowledged and addressed in updates.

As mentioned, this HydrogenOS 11 update is going out to the Chinese variants of OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.

However, knowing OnePlus and how the company often rolls out its updates to devices, users of OxygenOS 11 OnePlus 8 devices should get a similar update sometime soon.

Also worth noting is that the OnePlus 8T has already bagged a similar update in China as well. But since the OnePlus 8/8 Pro already bagged the November patch, the incoming version has no updated patch.
