OnePlus 7 Android Q update

  • Android Q beta update is available for download
  • Stable version expected in Q3/Q4 2019

OnePlus 7 users can already enroll their devices into the ongoing OnePlus 7 beta testing program. We don’t know when the stable version will be available, though, but late Q3 or early Q4 2019 seems reasonable based on past experience.

Also, the device is likely to receive at least two more Android OS upgrades in Android R and Android S. This has already happened with OnePlus 3 and 3T and OnePlus 5 and 5T, the latter pair having been promised to receive Android Q, their third major OS upgrade, somewhere in 2020.
