In October, OnePlus announced that the Android 10 update will be coming to the OnePlus 6 and 6T in November. OnePlus started to roll out for Android 10 on Friday, November 1 for the 6T and has officially announced it via the forums on Saturday.
The OnePlus 6, however, has hit a small delay because of an issue with its fingerprint sensor, which has since been resolved allowing the update to begin.
You’ll see some Android 10-specific features come to your OnePlus 6 and 6T such as a new UI, enhanced location permissions for privacy, and new gestures for navigation with this update.
Right after Google debuted Android 10, OnePlus released its first few Oxygen OS 10 betas then quickly official updates for its latest phone. The new software is known as the Oxygen OS 10, based on Android 10. That’s just one phone though, so here’s what we know about all OnePlus Android 10 updates.
Android 10 officially arrived on September 3rd for Google devices, but most other manufacturers won’t release it for a while longer. That said, OnePlus already confirmed the update for the aging OnePlus 5 and 5T and the 6-series is getting it now, not to mention the OnePlus 7 family of phones a few months back.
Basically, the company confirmed that most of its new features that debuted on the OnePlus 7 Pro will make its way down to older smartphones. Then, after that announcement, they gave older device owners a sigh of relief by confirming Android 10 for the OnePlus 5 and 5T. You’ll be waiting a few months into 2020 for it, but OnePlus 6 owners will be happy to see it later this month.
OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T Android 10 update is available as of Monday, November 4th, which is a lot faster than most expected. This is great news and we’re glad to see manufacturers working so quickly.
We did see the 3-year old OnePlus 3 from 2016 get Android 9 Pie recently, which was impressive, but most likely that’s the last update for those phones. We don’t think the 3 or 3T will get Android 10. Any and all newer phones will, however.
If you’re wondering about the latest OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, we have some bad news. The EE model won’t see Android 10 until sometime in Q1 2020, and we have no clue about the T-Mobile model. Basically, the regular OnePlus 7 Pro already has Android 10, but the better, faster, more expensive 5G model won’t get it for several more months and potentially will be 6-7 months behind in updates. That makes no sense, but whatever.
