The stable OxygenOS 11 update based on Android 11 comes right after the company released the third beta Android 11 update two days ago. However, it is a shame that OnePlus’ flagship smartphones from three years ago had to wait so long to receive the Android 11 update. The stable Android 11 update for the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T, OxygenOS 11 now brings a new UI design, new camera UI, new shelf design with smart animations, and a bunch of new improvements to Game Space.
