OnePlus 8 Pro

OnePlus 8 Pro Android update status

Currently: Android 11

When OnePlus 8 Pro launched, it shipped with Android 10, but has since been updated to Android 11 (on 30 March, 2021). This phone was originally released on 4 / 2020.

Beta versions and unofficial versions

There's an official Android beta for OnePlus 8 Pro available. The Android 12 beta is official beta from the phone's manufacturer, but it is not recommended for everyone. You should install beta version of the operating system only if you understand the possible associated risks.

Upcoming updates?

Expected: Android 13 (last version ever)

OnePlus has promised that OnePlus 8 Pro will eventually get Android 13. However, this is only the manufacturer's promise, as far as we know - OnePlus might release even further updates to the phone later or might end support earlier on.

Based on what we currently know, the expected Android 13 will be the last Android update for OnePlus 8 Pro. After this update, the device might get security patches, but wont get any new major Android versions to it.

OnePlus 8 Pro update history

Why my phone still has the older Android version...?

Please note that most of the time the new Android versions get rolled out relatively slowly: manufacturers don't deliver over-the-air (OTA) Android updates to all users at the same time, but instead, roll out the update in cycles.

Additionally, if your phone has been bought from an operator, this complicates things. While the unlocked phones might get the updates, the operator-specific, so-called "locked phones" might be out of luck. Typically, the large operators have their own customizations in place for the phones sold through them and due those customizations, the update schedule for operator locked phones can be totally different than those that are unlocked.

You can try to manually check if there's an update available for your phone by visiting your phone's Settings. There, you can find a place for System updates. Visit that section: it will check whether there's updates available for your phone right now.

If you think our data is incorrect, please let us know and we'll fix it ASAP.
