While an open beta of Android 10 is certainly not the same as a stable version, OnePlus’ open betas usually are quite reliable. This means that a large chunk of OnePlus 7 Pro owners will have access to a fairly-stable version of Android 10 on the same day as Pixel owners get the official release.
Below, you’ll find the official changelog for this Open Beta 1 for the two OnePlus 7 devices. This changelog shows the differences between this first beta and the stable release of Android 9 Pie:
- Upgraded to Android 10
- Brand new UI design
- Enhanced location permissions for privacy
- New customization feature in the Settings allowing you to choose icon shapes to be displayed in the Quick Settings
- Full Screen Gestures
- Added inward swipes from the left or right edge of the screen to go back
- Added a bottom navigation bar to allow switching left or right for recent apps
- Game Space
- New Game Space feature now joins all your favorite games in one place for easier access and better gaming experience
- Smart display
- Supported intelligent info based on specific times, locations and events for Ambient Display (Settings – Display – Ambient Display – Smart Display)
- Now possible to block spam by keywords for Message (Messages – Spam – Settings -Blocking settings)
This open beta now supersedes the developer previews OnePlus has been releasing for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro over the past few months, the most recent of which landed just yesterday.
