OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T get Android Q beta, OnePlus 7 Pro compatible as well
Google announced the latest beta version of Android Q at I/O 2019. Android Q beta 3 is now available to 15 more devices including OnePlus smartphones. The upcoming OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro smartphones will also be eligible for Android Q beta update.
At present, OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T users can download Android Q beta update on their phones. The developer preview version for Android Q will allow OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T users to experience unreleased Android Q features. OnePlus advises that only developers and early adopters download the Android Q beta update since it is still in development stage.
Also, phones running on Android Q beta will not function properly with some features not working at all. On OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, camera, portrait mode and ambient display don’t work with Android Q beta. Users could face system stability issues as well.
For those who wish to still experience Android Q beta can do so by following this link. Installing this update will require users to flash their smartphones which should have more than 30% battery and minimum 30GB of storage. It is advised that data is backed up before flashing the ROM. Users can also go back to Android Pie by downloading the rollback page.
With Android Q beta 3, Google also announced new features coming to the OS. Android Q will support screen continuity for foldable screens. The latest iteration of Android will also have built-in 5G support. Dark mode also finally made its way to Android with the latest OS version. On Android Q, users can switch to ‘dark theme’ for an almost black coloured UI.
