Android 11 for OnePlus 6(T) a step closer, test version now available

We had to wait a long time for it, but users of the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T can get started with Android 11. It is still the first test version.

OnePlus 6: Android 11 beta now available

It is no secret that Android 11 is also coming to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T. At the end of April it was announced that the rollout of the new software would take longer. As a result, the open beta of the software was expected at the end of August, but this test version has already been announced.

The software is not stable and still contains all kinds of quirks and bugs. Users of the test software can report them to OnePlus, so that the company can extract them in the stable version. The download links for the ROMs can also be found via the forum post. This way you can get started with the installation of the software on your device. Make sure that everything on your OnePlus 6(T) is completely erased. Therefore, the company also recommends making a full backup of all data.

When the stable Android 11 version rolls out for these smartphones depends on several factors. For example, all bugs must be squashed and there must be enough time to test the software. If the official rollout follows, you will of course read it immediately Android Planet.

OnePlus recently improved update policy

The OnePlus 6 was presented in May 2018 with Android 8.1 (Oreo) on board. Its direct successor in the form of the 6T came on the market in October 2018 and already ran on Android 9.0 (Pie). That the OnePlus 6 is due for its third Android version update is a nice welcome; normally the company offers two major updates. Both devices will also receive three years of security patches from release.

Recently, the company announced an improvement in the update policy for newer devices. From the OnePlus 8 series, it now promises three updates to Android and also an extra year of security patches. That applies to the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8T and OnePlus 8 Pro from last year and also to the recent OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro.
