OnePlus is one of several manufacturers with an opt-in Android 11 beta software track, and now people with a OnePlus 8 or 8 Plus can try out Beta 2.

OnePlus (sort of) announced its first pair of true wireless earbuds yesterday and has now released a few more details in a new blog post. A total of 30 hours of battery life is promised with 7 hours of continuous playback on a single charge. We can also see from the teaser image that the design will be similar to previous OnePlus earbuds with the red ring, although it sure looks like these are hard-tipped.
As we charge and discharge the batteries in our phones over time, those cells degrade and they can't hold juice like they used to. Of course, how our phones perform to get around this loss was the basis of Apple's Batterygate in 2018.

In typical fashion, OnePlus is leaving no stone unturned to hype up its new mid-ranger. Just like the norm before every phone launch, the company’s been dropping bits of information about the upcoming Nord. Thanks to a series of teasers, we already have a pretty good idea of how the handset will shape up. Further elaborating on these details, the latest teaser tells us about the ultra-wide camera capabilities of the Nord’s dual selfie sensors.
It looks like for the time being that the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren will be the last phone to feature the automaker's label. So, if you want to grab this high-octane co-branding oddity while there's still new stock available, your days are numbered. Fortunately, OnePlus has a little sale on right now that will definitely help take the sting out of the purchase.
There's been an outsize and protracted hubbub over the OnePlus 8 Pro's color filter camera. It let users see through some thin plastics and other materials, including certain types of cloth — leading to worries about it granting "X-ray vision." It was never particularly effective at seeing through clothing, but nevertheless, OnePlus is rolling out a patch to stem potential abuse by limiting the camera's functionality.
