OxygenOS Open Beta 4 on OnePlus 8 Series brings November Security Patch

The fourth OxygenOS Open Beta is now live for the OnePlus 8 Series. The last OxygenOS Open Beta 3 was released about three weeks ago with the Canvas AOD feature. And later OnePlus also releases the stable OxygenOS bringing the Canvas AOD to everyone. The OxygenOS Open Beta 4 comes with some new features that you can expect to release for everyone with a stable update probably next month.

OnePlus 8 OxygenOS Open Beta 4 comes with a long list of bug fixes and a few new features as well as performance improvements. After the OxygenOS 11 update, I have noticed the battery performance decreased a lot. And as per the OxygenOS Open Beta 4 changelog, it looks like they will fix the battery drain issue.

OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro flagship devices received the OxygenOS 11 in September with most of the Android 11 features. But as usual, there will be some bugs which is a common scenario for all the phones. And OnePlus is one of the best OEMs which doesn’t give chance for complaints with its regular update policy. And knowing their priorities the company has released the OxygenOS Open Beta 4 for OnePlus 8 Series. Check out the changelog below for more information.
