OnePlus 5T Gets A Taste Of Oreo With OxygenOS Open Beta

With the New Year just a day away, OnePlus is handing out software updates as presents to its users. The Chinese company released OxygenOS 5.0.1 for the OnePlus 3/3T yesterday along with a beta build for the OnePlus 5 (which includes Face Unlock). Now to please the OnePlus 5T owners, OnePlus has released the first Android 8.0 Oreo based beta build for the device.

Apart from all the Oreo features, this build includes some enhancements to the launcher. Here's the changelog:

  • Updated to Android O (8.0)
  • Launcher
    • Optimized the app shortcut style
    • Combine icon options with app shortcuts
    • Now able to upload photos to Shot on OnePlus
  • System
    • Added Picture in Picture
    • Added Auto-Fill
    • Added Smart Text Selection
    • New Quick Settings design
    • Updated Android security patch to December

If you wish to try out Oreo on your OnePlus 5T, you can get your hands on the OxygenOS Open Beta build from here. I would recommend you to give the second post (in the forum post linked in the source) a thorough read. The post details installation instructions for all kinds of users - those who have unlocked the bootloader and those who haven't. The additional pointers worth mentioning here are as follows:

  • Once you hop on to the beta program, you will not get the stable updates
  • Moving back to the stable OxygenOS builds will require a wipe of the data partition which will delete all the existing applications
