OnePlus 6/6T Android 11 update may not arrive until the end of the year
Within the past year, Oneplus has struggled to update its devices. After the update for the OnePlus 7/7T series, it should be the turn of the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T but based on a new report, the stable update may arrive well after Android 12 has been released.
According to a forum post, actually an OxygenOS Monthly FAQ, it had been revealed that the Open Beta version for the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T is scheduled to be released by the top of August which is four months from now!
Based on this info, we don’t expect a stable update are going to be released until late October at the earliest and by then Android 12 will have already got been announced and doubtless even begun rolling out for its eligible devices.
The OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T were launched with Android 8 Oreo and Android 9 Pie respectively. So for the previous, this is often its third major OS upgrade and presumably its last. For the OnePlus 6T, this may be its second OS upgrade.
OnePlus recent attitude to updates may dissuade prospective customers and also as cause to current ones to modify to a different brand.
