[Update: Jun. 10] OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 10 brings Bitmoji AOD, tons of fixes & May security patch

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on May 20, 2021) follows:

OnePlus’ Open Beta program has been pretty popular in the OnePlus community. And for good reason. This release channel allows users to get updates and features before everyone else on the stable release channel.

OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro users on this channel received the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 9 update a month ago and that update brought with it a bunch of tweaks like the FPS meter in OnePlus 8 along with the April patch.

Well, most notable is the addition of support for Bitmoji AOD on these OnePlus 8 devices, a feature that’s been teased for months and that’s since proven elusive for the OnePlus 8T.
