OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro updates

  • Current stable version: Android 9 Pie
  • When will the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro get Android Q? September 2019 – November 2019 (estimated)

The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro launched on May 14, 2019, with the then-latest version of Android, Android 9 Pie. It’s expected both devices will receive at least two major Android updates in the future — Android Q in 2019 and Android R in 2020. It’s possible that it will also receive an update to Android S in 2021, as the OnePlus 3T received four flavors of Android during its update lifespan (Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo, and Pie).

Based on OnePlus’ history of updates — as well as the fact that OnePlus is already pushing beta versions of Android Q to the devices — the phones are likely to receive the final version of Android Q shortly after it’s released. Google is expected to release Android Q sometime around this August.
