OnePlus launched OnePlus 6 earlier this year and later in Google I/O, Google announced that OnePlus will be one of the companies who will receive Android Pie Beta updates. As Google launched Android Pie on August companies started working on Android Pie software based on their skins. After Pixel devices, Essential was the first company to deliver Android Pie update. OnePlus is the second manufacturer who is providing Android Pie update.

This Firmware is still in beta, so it’s worth noting that if you want stability then you should stick to the stable version. There might be bugs in this firmware.
