    Hey everyone

    Here are the latest open beta builds for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.

    • System
      • Optimized some UI display in Settings
      • Fixed the low probability issue that widgets did not respond
      • Fixed the failure to wake up Google Assistant in some cases
      • Fixed the issue that the HD icon on the call log interface was not centered
      • Fixed the black screen issue when user entered “Tips & Support” interface
      • Improved the system stability
    • Clock
      • Fixed the issue that numbers disappeared in Timer under some special circumstances
    • Ambient display
      • Newly added Canvas feature that can automatically draw a wireframe picture based on a lock screen photo on your phone. In a later version, you can view it anytime without waking up the screen.(Path: Settings-Customization-Wallpaper-Canvas-Choose photo preview and it can be generated automatically)
    • Network
      • Optimize the power consumption of the Smart 5G
    Note: If users in the IN region update to the OBT 2, some functions may be missing.
    For our Indian users, the builds are still delayed due to technical reasons, download links for respective devices will be added in the thread below soon.

    Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks. For those who were on previous versions for OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, we appreciate your active feedback and for reaching out to us. With your help, we have been able to better optimize and improve several key areas. Thank you for your patience and as always, we look forward to getting your continued feedback via the Community app.

    If you don't have the Community app installed on your device, feel free to download it HERE. You can check here for more information on the integrated Feedback tool.

    Please note:
    • If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta), you will receive this new build as an OTA.
    • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM on the downloads page here.
    • Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
    • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).
    Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here in the thread too. We are watching.

    Never Settle.

    Oxygen OS11 looks & feels more lovely and buttery with every release.
    Only issues for me are that I still can't install updated Gallery app (since OB1) from Play Store and I've no Canvas option (both already reported). said:
    Keep up the great work #teamoneplus

    Just a thought, if they give as back white ring around front camera when it's active, why can't we use it as a notification light?
