OnePlus has become slower and slower at shipping security updates in a timely manner, ranking far behind devices from Samsung, Google, and other companies in our security update tracker. The OnePlus 7 and 7T series took over a month to receive the September security update, and the company is sticking to roughly the same schedule with the October fixes.

OnePlus is now rolling out OxygenOS Open Beta 9 to the 7T and 7T Pro, and Open Beta 19 to the 7 and 7 Pro. The official changelog only mentions two changes: the October security patches are included, and a bug with the front camera has been fixed.


  • Improved system stability and fixed general issues
  • Updated Android Security Patch to 2020.10


  • Fixed the flashback issue when switched to the front camera in particular cases

Assuming no last-minute bugs are discovered, the update should roll out to non-beta users soon. OnePlus also released an update to the 8T today, which included fixes for battery consumption and Bluetooth latency.
