OnePlus has recently shown a bit of its software support for older models with a new OxygenOS Open Beta for OnePlus 6 and 6T. The update in question introduced Digital Wellbeing, Fanatic Mode, and June 2019 security patch. Now the Chinese firm is rolling out the Android Q Developer Preview 2 for the owners of last year’s models that are eager to test the new version of Android.
The final build of Android Q is still some months away from being released to the public. But those who are always trying new things will be able to test the software experience of Google’s next flavor of Android through the Developer Preview. However, don’t go running to flash this new build if you need the phone for a daily basis. This isn’t a finished software, and it comes with a fair share of known issues. Some of the issues already found on OnePlus 2018 models are:
- The emergency call doesn’t work
- Enhanced VoLTE doesn’t work
- The expanded screenshot doesn’t work
- Low probability stability issues
- Application compatibility issues
Just imagine if you’re needing to perform an Emergency call but you can’t because you’ve flashed this Android Q Developer Preview 2 without minding the consequences. If you have a OnePlus 6 or OnePlus 6T as a daily driver phone, we recommend skipping this build. OxygenOS is pretty good and well-packed software, so if you’re not an experiment user why taking the risks?
That said, if you are still willing to take the risk, you can head over to the source link below for installation instructions.
