OnePlus Hydrogen 11, based on Android 11, will be launched on August 10, the company has announced. OnePlus ships its phones with Hydrogen in China and Oxygen in the rest of the world. Since Google services are not available in China, HydrogenOS comes without apps like Play Store. The release of HydrogenOS means that Android 11 is coming to OnePlus phones, and also sets the stage for OxygenOS 11 rollout in other markets such as India.
OnePlus confirmed that it will announce Hydrogen 11 on August 10 via Weibo Post at local time (11:30 am IST). Little is known about the features to be included in the latest iteration of the operating system. Since it will be based on Android 11, it is safe to say that the OS will bring all the features that will be included in the upcoming iteration of the stable Android OS.
Recently, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau shared an image showing a watch face with a time of 11 o’clock, and wrote in its caption, “11 on display”. This was seen as an indication that the One-On Display (AOD) feature would be introduced in the OnePlus phone either with Android 11 update or with OxygenOS 11 (and HydrogenOS 11) update.
