LineageOS 18.1 builds are here for the OnePlus 7 Pro/7T Pro, Redmi Note 5 Pro, and Moto X (2014)
Earlier this month, the team behind the LineageOS custom ROM officially rolled out LineageOS 18.1 based on Android 11. The update introduced a slew of features over the previous version, including a new calendar app, a built-in backup solution, the latest Android security patches, and much more. The initial release was made available for nearly 60 devices, but the team has already added a couple of more devices to the roster. If you have a OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T Pro, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, or the Moto X (2014), you can now download LineageOS 18.1 builds from the official download portal.

Redmi Note 5 Pro
The Redmi Note 5 Pro (code-name “whyred”), which was a Snapdragon 636-powered mid-range devices from 2018, was originally launched with MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Gaining support for the latest version of LineageOS will no doubt inject some new life into this Xiaomi device. This build is maintained by developers srfarias and SebaUbuntu.
