OnePlus Android 10 update: Device list, Release Date, OxygenOS 10 and More

OnePlus is the only non-Google OEM that currently guarantees at least three Android OS upgrades for its devices. The company already has up to four smartphones taking part in Android 10 beta program and even better is that nearly all of its existing phones will be upgraded to Android 10.

With longer software support guaranteed, now the big question is when will Android 10 arrive for each of the devices in question? Let’s find out.

OnePlus Android 10 Release Date

OnePlus has enrolled four smartphones into Android 10 beta testing program. As of June 13, any of OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 6 or OnePlus 6T can be used to try the latest Android 10 developer preview software.

The premium OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, as well as the aging OnePlus 5 and 5T, are also eligible for an update to Android 10, but they aren’t part of the current beta testing program.

While we expect the 5G variant to receive the stable update to Q before the end of 2019, OnePlus isn’t in any major hurry to upgrade the 5 and 5T to Q, but Q2 2020 seems reasonable for a release date. After all, OnePlus 3 and 3T got their third major OS upgrade in Q2.

OnePlus Android 10 update features

OnePlus Android 10 update will include OxygenOS customizations on top. At this point in time, we don’t know what plans OnePlus has in store, but we do know most of the features the underlying OS will bring to OnePlus devices.

You can read about Android 10 features, both confirmed and rumored arrivals.

OnePlus 7 Pro Android Q

OnePlus 7, 7 Pro and 7 Pro 5G

  • All three are eligible
  • Beta available for OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro (DP3)
  • Stable version should arrive in Oct-Nov 2019

Owners of OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G will receive Android 10 update. So far, the unlocked variants of the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro already have access to Android 10 beta and are expected to receive the stable version somewhere in early Q4 2019, although we won’t be surprised if the OS arrives in late Q3 2019.


OnePlus 6T Android Q update

OnePlus 6 and 6T

  • Both are eligible for Android 10
  • Beta testing is ongoing (DP3)
  • Stable version expected in December 2019

OnePlus 6 and 6T were among the first non-Google devices to be added to the ongoing Android 10 beta testing program. The duo is also expected to be among the first non-Google phones to receive the stable version, most likely towards the end of the year.


OnePlus 5T

OnePlus 5 and 5T

  • Both are eligible for Android 10 update
  • OnePlus in no major hurry to update the duo
  • Expect Q to arrive in Q1 2020

OnePlus 5 and 5T are guaranteed to receive updates to Android 10, but OnePlus says it won’t be in any major hurry to release the software to the duo. The 3 and 3T got their third major OS upgrade in April/May 2019 and if OnePlus is to follow the same pattern, we are looking at an April/May 2020 release date for OnePlus 5 and 5T Android 10 update.

But of course, we can be a little optimistic, so be sure to set your eyes on February 2020 as the possible Android 10 release date for OnePlus 5 and 5T, although this could be the beta version.


OnePlus 3 and 3T

  • Not eligible for Android 10
  • Expect plenty of custom ROMs

OnePlus 3 and 3T are the first non-Google devices ever to receive three major Android OS updates officially. As a result, they’ve come to the end of the road, which also means no Android 10 updates from OnePlus.

The only other way to get Android 10, Android R, and probably Android S on your OnePlus 3 and 3T will be through custom ROMs. And yes, you can expect plenty of them from the likes of LingeageOS, Pixel Experience, and so on.


OnePlus One, 2 and X

  • None is eligible for Android 10
  • Custom ROMs should be available

Its been years since OnePlus officially upgraded the Android OS installed on any of OnePlus One, OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X. This is set to go on even after the release of Android 10, but like with previous versions, expect plenty of custom ROMs based on Android 10 for these devices.
