OnePlus 6 and 6T will get Android 11 beta builds starting in August

Vlad, 29 April 2021

The OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T both launched in 2018, at various points throughout the year, and so they're both more than two years old. Even so, the company is apparently working on Android 11 updates for them - but that's where the good news ends, unfortunately.

OnePlus has unveiled that it expects the first beta version of its OxygenOS 11 software based on Android 11 to reach the 6 and 6T towards the end of August. And that's just the first build.

Expect to see a bunch of others follow in the next weeks after that, so if you're wondering when a final, stable, non-beta build might be out for these phones, we'd say it could actually be towards the end of the year. Either way, it will be after Google releases Android 12, which is pretty bad for a company (OnePlus) that used to be known for rather quick updates to new Android versions. It's nowhere near that lately, however.

Considering the age of these phones, perhaps we should just be happy they're getting updated at all, and we are, but it's a bit weird to receive the update to last year's Android version when this year's is already out, isn't it?

Works beautifully well.

""Sorry, but OnePlus promised 3 OS updates. So, I do expect 3 updates. I do expect them in timely manner as well."" Sorry to say you expect too much!!!

That is reality... did you expect oneplus to provide 3 major os update to their flagship on time?no? nobody does it... a flagship device is now forgotten in 6 to eight successor comes every 6 month instead of 12 month..Whether late or no...
