Stable Oxygen OS 10.3.1, Open Beta 9 updates land on the OnePlus 7 Pro

Update: February 14, 2020 (01:20 PM ET): OnePlus recently released the latest Oxygen OS Open Beta 9 build and Oxygen OS 10.3.1 stable update for the OnePlus 7 Pro. Both updates include several bug fixes, tweaks, and January’s security patch. A few of the 10.3.1 updates are India exclusives, but all devices should get the most important system enhancements.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the OnePlus 7 is included in this latest beta update yet, and we aren’t sure if the stable update has landed on the device either. Since OnePlus has chosen to focus on tweaks and optimizations this time around, OnePlus 7 owners aren’t really missing out on anything exciting apart from the latest security patch.

Here is a screenshot of the complete stable update changelog found in the Oxygen Updater:

The complete beta update changelog includes the following:

  • System
    • Enhanced one-hand usage for dialer app
    • Optimized network for a better gaming experience
    • Updated Android security patch to 2020.01
    • Improved system stability and fixed general bugs
  • Zen Mode V1.5.0
    • Supported OnePlus Account login, synchronization of badges and historical data
  • Weather
    • Fixed the weather app crashing issue

If you are already on Oxygen OS Open Beta 8, you should receive the OTA anytime now. If you’re not and you would like to transition to the Open Beta release cycle, you’ll need to jump through a few hoops first.

For those of you running Android 9 who would like to flash the open beta builds, you will need to install Open Beta 5 first. Upgrading directly from Android 9 to Open Beta 6 or later will result in a failure to update. 

Migrating to the beta path means you will continue to receive the beta OTAs, but you will no longer receive the stable OTAs. Switching back to the official OTA path requires a full install and clean flash. You can find detailed instructions on how to do all of this on your device here.

Welcome to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro updates hub. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the latest Android updates for the two devices, including their current versions and when future updates are likely to arrive.

Both the 7 and 7 Pro run OxygenOS, OnePlus’ proprietary Android skin. OxygenOS is known for fast updates that come for a very long time, so be sure to bookmark this page and visit often.

Note the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro sometimes receive updates at the same time. Also, note that the T-Mobile variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro might receive software updates at a later date.

OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro updates

  • Current stable version: Android 10
  • When will the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro get Android 11? September 2020 (estimated)

The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro launched on May 14, 2019, with the then-latest version of Android, Android 9 Pie. It’s expected both devices will receive at least two major Android updates in the future.

Unlocked variants of the two phones started receiving Android 10 in late September, though many users didn’t see the OTA for weeks after before OnePlus quietly shelved it due to a few pesky bugs. The rollout began anew in mid-October as OxygenOS version 10.0.1.

At the end of December, the Android 10 update for the T-Mobile variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro finally began rolling out. The update came in as Oxygen OS 10.0.1 and included the November 2019 security patch. Unlocked 7 Pro models are on Oxygen OS 10.3.0, although it’s not clear which features the T-Mobile update is missing, if any.

OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G will eventually be upgraded to OxygenOS 10 — though users will have to wait until Q1 2020 to see it.

Right after the beginning of the new year, OnePlus released the latest Oxygen OS Open Beta 8 builds for OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro users. This update brought several bug fixes including touch screen optimizations and camera performance tweaks as well as the December security patch.

The pair are expected to see Android 11 in 2020. It’s possible that it will also receive an update to Android 12 in 2021, as the OnePlus 3T received four flavors of Android during its update lifespan (Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo, and Pie).
