Along with launching the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro smartphones, the company also revealed the roadmap for the OxyegenOS 10 update roadmap, which is based on the latest Android 10 operating system.
The Chinese company has confirmed that it will be rolling out Android 10-based OxygenOS update for the smartphones going back as far as OnePlus 5. However, do note that the company has also rolled out the latest Android 10 update for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro smartphones.
Carl Pei of OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6 and 6T series smartphones will get the beta update later this month while the stable update will be rolled out from next month, i.e. November 2019.
On the other hand, OnePlus 5 and 5T users will be getting the update sometime in Q2 2020. The company has not mentioned anything about the beta program for the OP5 smartphone but we expect to hear something about it in the coming days. The timeline is similar to the one revealed earlier for the Chinese market.

- Stable – November 2019
- OnePlus 5/5T series: Q2 2020
When it comes to the latest software updates, OnePlus holds a good track record compared to its competitors. The newly launched OnePlus 7T and the 7T Pro are the first smartphones to come with Android 10 operating system out-of-the-box even though the update was released just a couple of months ago.
OxygenOS 10 based on the latest Android 10 will come with several exciting new features for the OnePlus users, which includes a new interface design, full-screen gestures, new app called Game Space, and spam blocker, among others.
OnePlus’ OxygenOS is one of the best custom Android skins from the smartphone makers. It is almost same as the stock Android but the company has introduced several other useful features in its interface such as the App locker, Parallel Apps, etc.
In a related news, OnePlus recently launched a new post-purchase program for its users in the Indian market, dubbed as OnePlus Care. Along with the after-sales service, it also offers free 1-year extended warranty, or up to 50% off on battery replacement and extra discounts of up to ₹3,000 on upgrade plans.UP NEXT: OnePlus showcases “Instant Translate” feature coming soon to its phones
