OnePlus 8 Pro Gets Its Massive Android 11 Update

The huge Android 11 update is now rolling out to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro! After a number of previews and betas, OnePlus started pushing the update this weekend with OxygenOS 11 by its side.

OnePlus (finally) included an always-on display function and it’s fairly good. There are a number of clocks to select from and quite a lot of items to customize for it within Settings>Display>Ambient display. That’s not all, though!

OnePlus tossed in a real dark theme toggle, a new weather app UI, new Zen Mode themes, and a significant UI refresh which may remind you of Samsung’s One UI. As someone who happens to love One UI, OnePlus’ new skin here isn’t bad by any means and appears fairly clean. 

To test for the update, head into Settings>System>System updates.
