As you all are aware of the fact that OnePlus 5T has been launched yesterday and it is everywhere trending due to extra features that OnePlus has added. The price tag is same as OnePlus 5. But one of the biggest disappointments come to me when I get to know OnePlus 5T will be containing Android v7.1.1 Nougat and not on Android Oreo. Now that's one thing where I'm mostly angrt upon OnePlus
But they have a stable solution for their users and will get stable update of Android Oreo till January 2018. Here are the full details of this report:
OnePlus will be releasing the Android 8.0 Oreo open beta starting later this month for the OnePlus 5 units, and also revealed OnePlus 5T users can expect to get onto the beta by the end of December. For interested users if it's not already clear, the open beta builds of Android 8.0 Oreo will have to be manually flashed on the OnePlus devices. Unfortunately, OnePlus didn't reveal an exact time frame for the final OTA build of Android 8.0 Oreo but you can expect it to arrive in 2018. OnePlus did mention "early 2018" during the keynote on Thursday. Alongside Oreo, the company will also release the latest version of its OxygenOS as well.
New Features in Android Oreo
For the uninitiated, Google's latest Android 8.0 Oreo brings faster boot times, notification dots, auto fill and smart text selection, settings redesigned, revamped Google Now, picture in picture mode, and Google Play music notifications. Interestingly, the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T have already received Oreo builds in open beta, and were initially promised to get their stable update by the end of the year - however, that plan may have changed in the interim. It will be the last update the smartphones receive, the company had confirmed previously.
