OnePlus announced during the Onelus 5T launch that Android Oreo-based OxygenOS open beta for the OnePlus 5 will start rolling out this month. In the same vein, the newly launched OnePlus 5T will get its own update in December.
The BBK subsidiary also disclosed that users should expect Android 8.0 Oreo-based OxygenOS stable ROM to hit their devices in early 2018. The company didn’t elaborate on when the new stable ROM will be available specifically.
Earlier rumors had tipped the OnePlus 5T would run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box but that didn’t happen in the end. The device was announced with Android 7.1 Nougat providing the interface. The 5T is basically a design update of the OP5 released just a couple of months back. But it comes with an upgrade of its rear cameras which is still a dual setup but the second lens is a wide-angle module in an effort to improve low-light photography. Apart from that, the OP5T also comes with a 6.01-inch full-view display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Surprisingly, the price tag remains the same. Its price starts at $500 (€500) for the 64GB model and $560 (€560) for the 128GB variant. Sales would commence on November 21.
