Android 10 Comes to OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro

Posted on September 21, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Android, Mobile with 9 Comments

OnePlus has suddenly begun rolling out Android 10 to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro after a very quick beta program.

“We are very excited to announce that we are ready to roll out OxygenOS version 10.0 based on Android 10,” the firm announced in its customer forum. “This OTA [over the air update] will have a staged rollout. The OTA will be received by a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days after making sure there are no critical bugs.”

In a previous post, OnePlus described some of the changes that OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro users can expect in OxygenOS/Android 10, including expanded customization settings, smart display functionality in the lock screen’s ambient display, comprehensive privacy management, new notification modes, the Game Space environment for hardcore gamers, and Wi-Fi sharing. These features are in addition to the features Google added in Android 10, of course.

It’s nice to see handset makers quickly supporting Android 10 and refuting a past in which major upgrades were few and far between. Samsung, too, is expected to start testing Android 10 publicly on its own devices and could ship the final version before the end of the year.

      In reply to Simard57:

      The only thing that stops me from buying their phones is a lackluster camera. I tried one and the build quality, feel, and software was impressive. If I ever go back to Android full time, it will be if Google ever fixes its build quality on Pixel devices.

      Samsung ranks high for me too, but I like OS upgrades, which is why Pixel and OnePlus are the brands I'd consider. If you like the Samsung UI and don't care for having more than one OS build, I think it's the best phone.

      I know I'm not Paul, but I have to mess with a ton of mobile devices through work.

    so looks like once again I was banned, as usual no notifications and no breaking rules:

    I simply pointed out what's written in the ".NET Core 3.0 Hits Release Candidate Phase":

    "and the biggest change is support for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Forms, and Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications on Windows"

    but of course paul didn't appreciate it, as he's continuing for some reasons his personal war against UWP, at least on twitter there is enough people that start to understand this


    this time he went to the next step, he even closed all the standard comment section

    From what I can tell, they never released a OnePlus 7. OnePlus jumped right to the 7 Pro. There's no 7 on their Web site.

    Will any other model get Android 10? OnePlus 6T? 6? 5T? 5?

    I've loved my OnePlus 3 and 5. The downside is that OnePlus promises three years of monthly updates and has never followed through. My OnePlus 3's last update was two years after its release date. My OnePlus 5 gets an update every few months (most recently on Aug 1). My next phone will probably be a Nokia.
