Just like it was promised by OnePlus, the OnePlus flagship devices – OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro recently received the latest Android 10 OS update. This happened the same day as Google released the OS. However as the Android 10 of OnePlus is based on OxygenOS, it’s still in the beta version as the third party OEMs have to compile their own stock firmware for their devices. So here is an article to help you download Oxygen OS based Open Beta 1 for OnePlus 7 (Pro).
However, it isn’t clear yet if the Android 10 update is based on the OxygenOS 10 as the Open Beta 1 is a novice firmware and there isn’t a word about it thus far.
Considering the changelog, which we have mentioned below, the Open Beta 1 brings along a completely new User Interface design which may be a hint of the latest OxygenOS.
Other major features this update brings are – Gaming Space feature, anti-spam measures for stock messages app to block by keywords, smart display, etc. There are also a number of Android 10 features like Gesture Navigation, Live Caption, Smart Reply, Sound Amplifier, Dark theme, Privacy Controls, Location Controls, Security Updates, and a lot more.
Well that’s a lot of features to take in, which certainly is great news for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro users but we should not forget that this Open Beta 1 is a Beta program and novice, of course, hence there are some compatibility issues encountered as well. A probability of a lagging system has been mentioned as well.
