OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 users will now receive that OxygenOS 11 update. Do note that this update will only be available to a small number of users with a full rollout planned for the next few days. This was done so that OnePlus could minimise bugs and inconsistencies in the update. The announcement was made on the OnePlus forums yesterday and OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro users should be expecting the update anytime soon. The update will also rollout for older OnePlus phones such as the OnePlus 7T Pro, OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7, OnePlus 6T, OnePlus 6, and the OnePlus Nord. The update should be about 2.8GB in size so do make sure you have enough space on your phone.
