Download: OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T receive stable Android 11 with OxygenOS 11 update

It’s finally time for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T users to get their hands on the stable Android 11 update. The first Open Beta build was available about a month ago. Within a few weeks of that release, we saw the arrival of a second and third Open Beta. Now, just two days later since the last beta, OnePlus is releasing the stable update to OxygenOS 11 for the OnePlus 6 series.

In addition to the long-awaited bump in the Android OS version, the first obvious change in the update is the reimagined user interface. Also, along with the sweet new feature in Ambient Display that lets users come up with a wireframe picture based on the lock screen photo, the update introduces various Game Space-related functionalities as well. The stock camera application has received UI enhancements too, while the Shelf acquired support for an animated weather widget.

As usual, OnePlus has opted for a staggered rollout strategy. The stable build will only roll out to a small number of users at first and will begin a wider rollout in a few days to avoid the risk of sending out an unstable build.

If you want to skip the wait and upgrade now, you can use the following full OTA download links. Pick the appropriate package for your phone, go to Settings > System > System Updates, and then click on the top-right icon and select “Local Upgrade” option. From there, select the update package that you have downloaded and proceed.
