OnePlus has some interesting plans for Android 8.0 Oreo rollout on their smartphone line up. Currently, the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5, all already have the stable oreo build running. However, the latest device OnePlus 5T still haven’t received a beta version let alone the stable release as of now.
However, the company announced Wednesday that it was going to have an open beta version for the OnePlus 5T running on Android 8.0.

The above tweet coming from the company mentions that the Android 8.0 open beta rollout for the OnePlus 5T starts immediately. This means that if you are running on the latest OnePlus device you would think you can download the beta now. However, there is no current open beta update available which takes the immediate and “starts now” factor out of the message. However, the good news is that it is expected to roll out in the future (I would say near future but the timing doesn’t seem to be a strong point for this company (kidding)).
OnePlus 5T HardWare Specifications
If you are wondering what is under the hood of this device it is a dual SIM (GSM + GSM) device with a 1080×1920 AMOLED Display (6-inch fullscreen device). It runs on the companies “OxygenOS 4.7” which is basically their version of Samsung’s “Touch Wiz” only I find it personally to be a lot less cumbersome.
In addition, it is powered by a 2.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor which comes with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM depending on the model you purchase.
In addition, the rear camera comes in at 16-megapixels and a secondary 20-megapixel telephoto sensor. The front camera is also comparable coming in also at 16-megapixels. The phone also includes face unlocking, a fingerprint scanner and finally a 3300mAh non-removable battery.
While this update’s exact release date still appears to be a mystery the OxygenOS 5.0 based on Android 8.0 was released early November for the devices we listed in the beginning of the article as for when we can expect a release for this device it still seems to be a mystery.
