OnePlus 5 Gets Android 8.1 Through Open Beta 6 Update

OnePlus 5 Gets Android 8.1 Through Open Beta 6 Update

It has been confirmed that the latest open beta program will bring in Android 8.1 Oreo update for the OnePlus 5 and 5t devices.

The public update will be pushed via OTA and you will have to charge the handsets up to 100% to avoid interruption. Chances are, it may do so very soon, probably in the next couple of days.

Apart from the change in the software version and Android patch level, the differences in Open Beta 4 (for the OnePlus 5T) and Open Beta 6 (for the OnePlus 5) are functional and related to the Oxygen OS overlay. What are your thoughts wonOnePlus bringing in new features from the iPhone and some older ones from Samsung? It also comes with general bug fixes and improvements along with more clock styles for the ambient display. Both of these packages will bring the phone to Android Oreo, along with updating the Android security patch to February 2018. When it comes to the gaming mode, OnePlus also added some changes here, with new optimizations in gaming mode, for a more immersive gaming experience.




OnePlus Switch has also got support for migrating application data which further eases switching between devices. This means, OnePlus 5T users will be able to answer an incoming call just by picking up the device in hand.

Currently, the OnePlus 5T is the flagship smartphone from the China-based company, which was launched in November previous year. It will basically allow users to switch between devices seamlessly. However, advanced users can get a taste of upcoming features and software through the open beta program, before these features are thoroughly tested and rolled out as stable OTAs. Note: Connect to a working Wi-Fi before installing the update, and also back up your data. Digging deeper into the OxygenOS Open Beta 4 firmware files, an image has been found which is named as "screendecor_up_img_enchilada_1" as seen above.
