OnePlus has officially become one of the fastest Android OEMs to release Android 10 public build. It has started rolling OxygenOS update based on Android 10 for OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. The team was beta testing the new version since Google's Android 10 release announcement and now, it seems like the feedback has been at a satisfactory level for it to proceed with the stable rollout.
It is a big update as it not only brings Android 10 features, it also brings all the new OnePlus offerings including tweaks and customizations. OnePlus said that this is a gradual rollout which means a few users will receive it first followed by a slow expansion to the rest of the community. This is the reason you can keep checking for the update through phone's settings.
