OxygenOS Open Beta 1 with Android 8.0 Oreo starts rolling out to OnePlus 5

OnePlus, as promised before, has finally started seeding Android 8.0 Oreo to OnePlus 5, the smartphone it just announced will be out of stocks eventually. The new OS version comes as a part of Open Beta 1 and includes some new features and changes.

The OxygenOS Open Beta 1(Android O) for OnePlus 5 brings some of the native features such as Picture-in-Picture mode for better productivity, Passwords auto-fill, Smart text selection and new Quick Settings design. The OS version also included parallel apps and the security patch has been upgraded to October.

As for the launcher, the new Android 8.0 Oreo-based build comes with Notifications Dots feature along with a new folder design. You should also be able to upload your clicked images directly in the Shot on OnePlus section.

As is the case with every other beta software, this too is not as stable as the final version so OnePlus 5 users may witness some bugs and error while sporting the new Open Beta version. The company has also given flash instructions and how to download the full ROM on its own website.

Once users have downloaded and installed the beta versions, they will continue to receive future beta versions in the form of OTAs. Reverting back to the stable OTA version will require a flashing process from the beginning, wiping all the data from the device.

This announcement by OnePlus comes a week after it rolled out the final version of OxygenOS 5.0 update to OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T. The OS version is based on Android 8.0 Oreo and comes with all the native features mentioned above.

The Chinese tech firm was the first OEM to roll out Android 8.0 Oreo to its smartphones this year. Nokia recently started seeding it to Nokia 8. No other OEM has deployed the final version of Android 8.0 Oreo to its smartphones as most of them are still in testing/beta phases.
