OnePlus 7 Pro Android 10 update [OxygenOS 10]

  • Android 10 update for OnePlus 7 Pro comes as OxygenOS 10
  • The update is already available now (since Sep 21)
  • Not available for T-Mobile variant though, at least yet

On Sep 21, OnePlus release the Android 10 update for OnePlus 7 Pro in the form of OxygenOS 10 OS. It took oll just 18 days since Google rolled out Android 10 for its Pixel devices on Sep 3. That’s just great given the customization OnePlus has to do for integrating its custom skin with the new OS update. Sure, that they use stock UI helps, but they do have a lot of optimization given the features OxygenOS packs.

OnePlus 7 Pro has received the Android 10 stable update well before the likes of Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10, Asus ZenFone 6, Moto G7, and others
