OnePlus 7 Pro and the OnePlus 7 are getting an update featuring October 2021 Android security patch.
Along with that, the update is also bundled with a couple of bug fixes — including a call interface fix — and improvements for the OnePlus 7 series smartphones. The update is rolling out in the global markets but there is no mention about the update for Indian users in near future. OnePlus 7 series came with Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box and subsequently received Android 10 and Android 11 updates.
OnePlus did not specifically mention if users in India will also be receiving the update since there was no firmware version listed for the Indian handsets.
The firmware versions for the OnePlus 7 Pro in the global market and Europe are 188.8.131.52.GM21AA and 184.108.40.206GM21BA, respectively. The vanilla OnePlus 7 gets 220.127.116.11.GM57AA and 18.104.22.168GM57BA as the firmware versions in the global market and Europe, respectively. The size of the update is unknown, but users are advised to update their smartphones in a strong Wi-Fi connection and are put on charging.
The update for the OnePlus 7 series will reach the users automatically over-the-air. However, users can manually check for the update by heading to Settings > System > System updates.
