OnePlus could be releasing the Android 10 update for its OnePlus 7 series on the same day as Google releases it for its Pixel phones.
- OnePlus could release Android 10 for OnePlus 7 Pro on September 3.
- OnePlus has been rolling out timely Android security patches to its phones lately.
- Android 10 focuses mainly data privacy and security.
Of late, timely Android updates have been of prime importance to phone manufacturers across the globe. This is what the consumer wants and whichever brand delivers on this front manages to catch the public’s attention and eventually more consumers. OnePlus has always been trying to push the latest updates as fast as possible after Google releases it and after being a part of the Android beta program, we have seen OnePlus delivering security updates way before Google does for its Pixel phones. And there’s more good news regarding this.
A screenshot of a textual conversation on Reddit has confirmed that OnePlus could be joining Google this year to release the Android 10 update for its phones. This has never been seen before as Google is usually the first one to release a new Android update for its Pixel phones. The leaked screenshot suggests that OnePlus is working on the stable Android 10 update for its latest phones and is aiming to deliver it on the same day as Google releases.
And that means by early next week, you could see Android 10 on your OnePlus phones. As of now, Google is rumoured to release the Android 10 stable update on September 3 and if this information is to be believed, then we could see the latest Android 10 update on the OnePlus phones.
If this is true, then we could probably expect the OnePlus 7 Pro to get the Android 10 update on priority. The OnePlus 7 Pro is the flagship offering from OnePlus this year and it is expected that this one will get the update before the other models. After all, the OnePlus 7 Pro has been getting all the Android security patches on priority this year.
There are chances that OnePlus could also release the Android 10 update for the regular OnePlus 7 on September 3. It’s not yet known whether this Android 10 update will bring many changes to Oxygen OS or will simply be an Android version update. Last year, when OnePlus released the Android 9 Pie update, Oxygen OS received a couple of cosmetic changes in line with the stock build of the OS.
The Android 10 update is one of the biggest and most substantial Android update we have seen in years. Google has thoroughly worked on the security as well as privacy aspect of Android, giving more power to the user to control how their data is used by third-party apps. Android 10 also gets a new dark mode (which isn’t new for OnePlus users) as well as a new gesture navigation system.
