OnePlus releases its first stable version of Android 10 for the 7 and 7 Pro
OnePlus has released its first stable version of OxygenOS (OOS) 10 for the 7 series of phones. This update - OOS 10.0.1 based on Android 10 - had been available before now, but had been put on hold while the OEM sorted out what it describes as "certain bugs". Now, however, it is available for download in a staged roll-out worldwide.
OOS 10.0.1 has been partially developed as a result of the OnePlus Open Beta program, by which users can switch to this channel of updates for advanced access to upcoming upgrades, Android 10 included. As a result, many 7 or 7 Pro owners may already be familiar with this new stable OS' features. They include a renewed UI and UX, as well as more OOS-specific improvements such as New Game Space and Full Screen Gestures.
OnePlus also claims that OOS 10.0.1 for the 7 series also enhances photo quality on these phones. However, Open Beta users also have an even newer version of this ROM to test out. Its changelog includes numerous system-level bug and crash fixes compared to Open Beta 2 for the 7 and 7 Pro. It also includes a new Zen Mode Activity option, in which those who track screen-break behaviors with this app can share their progress.
OOS 10 Open Beta 3 for the 7 and 7 Pro also includes a Work-Life Balance Mode; however, this is exclusive to the Indian market. It affects how notifications behave depending on whether the user is at work or not. Users who would like to switch to Open Betas (or vice versa) on their OnePlus device can learn how on the OEM's community website. (OnePlus 7 on sale now at Amazon)
