A couple of weeks ago, OnePlus finally released the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 1 update for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series. The software upgrade introduced a fresh UI design, new camera tricks and output enhancements, Ambient Display tweaks, and a Dark Mode shortcut to name a few. Now, the company has started rolling out the second Android-11 based beta updated for the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro – dubbed OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 2. 

OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 2 update changelog:

System
1. Optimized the sliding effect of the dynamic wallpaper
2. Improved power consumption in some scenarios
3. Optimized the adjusting intensity of automatic brightness to bring a more smooth using experience
4. Fixed the issue with the adapter not charging and using the headset at the same time
5. Fixed the issue in which the battery icon is not displayed on the status bar
6. Fixed the issue that ‘Tips & Support’ is not displayed in the Settings
Camera
1. Fixed the small probability flashback issue with the camera when unlocking in professional mode
Ambient Display
1. Newly supported Always-on ambient display feature for OP7Pro and OP7TPro (Go to: Settings – Utilities – OnePlus Laboratory – Always-on ambient display)

Since this is a test build, it goes without saying that you will come across some bug and performance issues if you install the beta update, especially if you are jumping into the world of early testing from the stable channel. And if that’s the case, you should always make a backup of all your data as a precautionary measure before installing the OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 2 update. OnePlus also warns that the latest beta update for OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro will drain the battery faster if you enable the AOD feature. 

In case you’ve been running the previous beta build on your OnePlus 7T series, you’ll soon receive the OTA notification. For those who are new to the OxygenOS beta testing game, you can find the download files and the flashing instructions for OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 2 on this page.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
