OnePlus 5 Gets Android 8.1 Through Open Beta 6 Update

OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 beta testers can now get their hands on OxygenOS Open Beta 4 and Open Beta 6, respectively.

According to the OnePlus blogpost, the Android 8.1 Oreo update on OnePlus 5T will include some new features, including improved gestures for using the phone.

Very few manufacturers have sent out Android Oreo updates. With the new software update coming in, OnePlus 5T users receive a handful of new features including the new auto pick up gesture, general bug fixes and improvements and more. OnePlus has also added the ability to backup app data, in case you are looking to switch smartphones in the near future, and of course there are some changes to the system - which include being updated to the February 2018 security patch.

As far as the codename of the OnePlus 6 is concerned, the device is expected to be called as "enchilada" which comes after the OnePlus 5T was codenamed as "dumpling", OnePlus 5 as "cheeseburger" and OnePlus One being codenamed as "bacon". Users can now pick calls by raising the phone to their ears. The changelog states, "Added new optimizations in gaming mode for immersive gaming experience including power saving and pausing adaptive brightness". The update brings some cool features to the already interesting smartphone. If you work with either OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T, you should register for the open beta program since the software bits are available only for registered users. This means that OnePlus engineers are testing app support on the next smartphone with notch display. For more info, head to the Source links below.

Do note that since these are beta builds, you may face some issues with stability. The company is planning to gauge the response from beta users and based on the feedback the update will be modified to incorporate all the changes. Please remember that this is beta update and builds like this are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs.
