Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus was quick to send out the Android 14 update on the OnePlus 11 back in November. It took some time but the OnePlus Open is finally getting its share of upgrades to Android 14-powered OxygenOS 14. Turns out OnePlus is seeding the major update on its first foldable smartphone in India only before sending it across the global variant but there’s a catch.
OnePlus is pushing out OxygenOS 14 build number CPH2551_18.104.22.1680(EX01) in India only for those who were part of OnePlus’ Closed Beta and Open Beta programs. This is a stable update, however, with a big ‘If’ attached to it. Note that this doesn’t mean you won’t get the stable update on your OnePlus Open without being a part of the OnePlus Closed and Open Beta programs, it’s just that the update will be released gradually. Give it a few weeks tops.
The Android 14-based OxygenOS 14 on the OnePlus Open brings a massive changelog including improved Shelf function with more widget recommendations. OnePlus has added Quad Dynamics – a feature that uses morphing forms to keep you updated with the latest information at a glance. There’s improved system stability as usual. OnePlus has added Content Extraction – the feature works by recognizing and extracting both text and images on the screen with a tap.
The OnePlus OPen also gets improved camera-related permission management. There’s Smart Cutout – the feature works by separating subjects in shots for sharing or copying. You can read the entire changelog posted above.
Coming back to the update, you must have a running build number CPH2551_22.214.171.1241 to be eligible for the latest Android 14 update. It should arrive OTA with a notification popping up on your foldable phone or you can visit the Software Updates section within Settings to download and install it.
