OnePlus 8T was launched back in October 2020, and it shipped with Android 11 with OxygenOS 11 out-of-the-box, making it the first OnePlus to come with the latest version of Android.

OnePlus has begun rolling out the first OxygenOS 11 Beta Build for OnePlus 8T that allows users to test the new features in the build before a stable update is rolled out.
