OnePlus is usually among the first in the industry to update its older phones to the latest version of the Android operating system, and it looks like the company intends to keep things that way. After rolling out Android 11 on OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro smartphones, the company announced that it will launch its updated version of the Oxygen OS on OnePlus 7 series devices as well.
The company has provided a timeline for this update and has promised that the phones will receive the new software by December of this year. To remind our readers, the OnePlus 7 series carries four phones in the form of the OnePlus 7, 7 Pro, and the slightly more powerful OnePlus 7T Pro. While the company hasn’t confirmed which of the four devices will receive updates first, the OnePlus 7T Pro and 7T are expected to get the update ahead of the OnePlus 7 phones.
As things stand, the company is aggressively working to update its line of phones with the new Android 11-based Oxygen OS skin. However, the odd thing is that there is no news yet on the brand new OnePLus Nord update that l company launched earlier this year.
Going back to the phones that have been confirmed to get the update, the OnePlus 7T Pro features a 6.67-inch 90Hz display and offers QHD + and HDR10 + resolution (3120 × 1440 screen resolution).
The OnePlus 7T Pro includes three cameras on the rear panel and a single image sensor for selfies on the front. The device features a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with 7P lens structure, f1.6 aperture and OIS. The secondary camera uses a 16MP wide-angle lens with a 117-degree field of view. Finally, the third is an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom at an aperture of F2.4 and OIS support. OnePlus 7T Pro includes Super macro mode and Nightscape mode on the camera app itself. It also supports HIS (Hybrid Image Stabilization) so that users can shoot smoother and more stable videos. On the front, the OnePlus 7T Pro includes a 16MP pop-up selfie shooter.
The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The phone runs on Oxygen OS 10 based on Android 10. The OnePlus 7T Pro features a 4080mAh battery with 30W Warp Charge 30T support.
The OnePlus 7 and 7T series of phones will most likely receive the Android 11 based Oxygen OS update before the OnePlus Nord.
