OnePlus has been testing its OxygenOS 11 skin based on Android 11 on the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T series for a couple of months now.

We’ve seen three OxygenOS 11 Open Beta updates (1, 2, 3) go live for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series since January and now the company has released the fourth beta as well.

OnePlus announced the release of the OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 4 update for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro as well as the 7T and 7T Pro around an hour ago on its official community forums.

This new update does not bring any significant bug-fixes or improvements to the OnePlus 7 Pro, 7T, and 7T Pro.

However, since the OnePlus 7 did not bag the third Open Beta update, it has now received a bunch of fixes and improvements through the latest beta update.

The changelog is identical for the OnePlus 7 Pro, 7T, and 7T Pro. Check it out below:

System
– Fixed the issue that the battery icon in the status bar is abnormally displayed
– Fixed known issues and improved system stability
Bluetooth
– Fixed the issue where Bluetooth headsets are silent in aptX Adaptive mode

Here’s the changelog specifically for the OnePlus 7:

System
– Fixed the issue of slow charging rate in some cases
– Fixed the issue where Voice Wakeup is turned off after a system upgrade
– Fixed the lagging issue when playing screen-recorded videos
– Fixed the small probability failure issue with the Double Tap to Wake
– Fixed the issue that the battery icon in the status bar is abnormally displayed

Ambient Display
– Always-on ambient display is available now (Go to: Settings – Utilities – OnePlus Laboratory – Always-on ambient display)
Bluetooth
– Fixed the silent issue when the Bluetooth transport protocol is changed to aptX or aptX Adaptive
– Network
Improved the stability of the Wi-Fi connection and reduce Internet outages

Note that the bugs and issues that have now been fixed for the OnePlus 7 were already fixed for the other three devices mentioned above via the Open Beta 3 update.

Earlier we had reported that the delay with the release of the Open Beta 3 for the OnePlus 7 was due to issues with the Always on Display (AOD) feature.

Now, according to the changelog, the AOD function has been enabled with the update. The same was also mentioned with the Open Beta 3 update for the OnePlus 7T. More on that here.

With the release of the fourth beta, it’s clear that the stable OxygenOS 11 update for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series is around the corner.

So stay tuned to our dedicated tracker to be the first to know when the stable OxygenOS 11 update goes live for our OnePlus smartphone.
