After months of leaks, OnePlus 5T was unveiled to the world this Thursday. Many OnePlus fans may have wanted the OP5T to come pre-installed with Android 8.0 Oreo flavored OxygenOS. However, the smartphone will come preloaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. Fresh information suggests that the Android 8.0 Oreo update for OnePlus 5T will be available at the start of next year.
According to OnePlus, the OnePlus 5T and its predecessor phone, the OnePlus 5 have identical software. They feature the same Snapdragon 835 chipset and same amount of RAM. Hence, both the phones are expected to be paired for receiving software.
The Chinese firm has said it will be releasing Android 8.0 Oreo update for OnePlus 5T in early 2018. Last year, OnePlus had managed to release Android Nougat update for OnePlus 3 and 3T at the end of the year. However, OP5T users will have to wait until next year to receive the newest Android version.
OP5T owners can still taste the Android Oreo by enrolling for the open beta. OnePlus 5 users are scheduled to receive the Android Oreo open beta later this month. However, OP5T will be getting the open beta until late December.
OnePlus is aiming to release Android Oreo update as soon as possible to its smartphones. However, some manufacturers like Sony and Huawei have already launched their flagships with Android Oreo preinstalled. Other smartphone OEMs like Samsung and Nokia are also preparing Android Oreo updates for their smartphones.
