OnePlus Releases Android 10 Update (Open Beta) For 7 and 7 Pro – Guide

If you read our article the other day and expected a fully stable Android 10 update for your smartphone on the 3rd of September, you’re in for a bit of a melancholic surprise. Though OnePlus didn’t launch the stable Android 10 OTA update, they did publish an Open Beta for the same! So if you just can’t keep your phone in your pants till the stable update, you finally have some cause for celebration!

Obviously, this open beta will still be quite a few steps away from being the most stable version of the software on the market. But OnePlus’ track record for stable beta releases is quite impeccable so you should give this a shot if you can! You might face compatibility issues with certain apps, but that’s because app developers haven’t optimised their products to the latest software version.
