OnePlus 5/5T Get Their First Oreo 8.1 Based OxygenOS Open Beta

Much to the delight of the OnePlus 5 and 5T users, OnePlus has released the first Android 8.1 based Open Beta build for the two devices. Other major changes made by OnePlus in OxygenOS Open Beta 6/4 (for OnePlus 5/5T) include raise to answer the call feature, February security patch and several clock styles for ambient display.

Here's the complete changelog:

Upgraded system to Android 8.1 Oreo
  • Added New auto pick up gesture - answer incoming call by raising the phone
  • Added global roaming solution
Gaming mode
  • Added new optimizations in gaming mode for immersive gaming experience including
  • notifications blocking, power saving and pausing adaptive brightness
  • Added more clock styles for ambient display
  • Optimized full screen gesture support (this is only for 5T)
  • Updated Android security patch to 2018-02
OnePlus Switch
  • Supported data migration for application backup

New clock styles for ambient display

If you are on a previous Open Beta build, you will soon be getting an update notification for this build. In case you aren't using an Open Beta build right now, you can do so by following the installation instructions linked in the source. Once you have moved over to the Open Beta builds, you would no longer receive the stable OTA updates and moving back to the stable updates will require you to wipe the data partition, which essentially means that you will end up losing all your apps along with their data.
