And if you’re fine with that, you can join the OxygenOS Open Beta Program anytime and install the Open Beta 7 update.
Before you proceed, don’t forget to back up your OnePlus 8 / 8 Pro and make sure that the battery level is above 30%. Also, 3GB of available storage space is required for the update process to be smooth.
