Android 8.0-Based OxygenOS Open Beta 1 Hits The OnePlus 5T

OnePlus 5 Gets OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock Feature With OxygenOS Open Beta 3

The new update, available as an OTA download, comes with the latest December Android security patch, along with support for aptX HD, a new Wi-Fi hotspot device manager, an "adaptive mode" screen calibration, and other bug fixes and improvements. With just a few days and hours to spare, OnePlus has finally released the promised Android Oreo beta for the OnePlus 5T while also giving the OnePlus 5 its promised Face Unlock feature.

Of course, you can always wait for the Face Unlock feature to be available on a stable update, though there's no telling how long this will take. The update will also bring about the latest December Android Security patch. OnePlus 5T starts at Rs 32,999 for the base 6GB RAM model and goes to Rs 37,999 for the 8GB RAM variant. This came as a pre-installed app on the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, and OnePlus 5 and is developed by Qualcomm.

OnePlus announced last week via its German social media account that open beta for Android Oreo would be coming soon for OnePlus 5T. System changes include the addition of picture-in-picture, auto-fill and smart text selection functions.

Were you disappointed that the OnePlus 5T launched with Android Nougat despite Oreo having launched weeks earlier? Note that this is first beta build, which means that there will be a lot of bugs and issues. Considering the beta nature of the update, note that you may face some software issues. Several OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users have reported about Google Play placing FactoryMode as a "Harmful app" ever since the roll out of OxygenOS 5.0.1.
