OnePlus 5 and 5T Will be Getting Faster Android Updates As Well

OnePlus 5 and 5T Will be Getting Faster Android Updates As Well OnePlus 5 and 5T Will be Getting Faster Android Updates As Well

Project Treble is a Google's initiative to resolve one of the most common problems faced by Android devices - slower updates.

Partitions were not required for Android N and previous versions of Android, all of our current devices do not feature a partition. The OxygenOS Open Beta program, in fact, allows users of these OnePlus smartphones to get updates with the latest features and security patches before the release of the stable version. Well now, the company has released OxygenOS Open Beta 13 and 11 for OnePlus 5 and 5T respectively that brings in Project Treble support to both these smartphones. No OnePlus smartphone, up until now, supported Project Treble.

This doesn't guarantee that the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will get ultra-fast updates in the future, but it's a very good sign. Notably, the key highlight of the latest update is Project Treble support. Today OnePlus has released a new pair of Open Betas for the OnePlus 5 and 5T, and the changes are quite substantial, including "Supported [sic] for Project Treble". Additionally, the new versions bring some other features and optimisations including new accent colours and a refreshed user interface. Last year OnePlus said that their devices would not support Project Treble, but it seems that they have tripped over their stance.

Eight statistics that matter ahead of World Cup quarterfinals
Croatia reached the quarterfinals in its first tournament in 1996 and has advanced that far only once since. Both sides needed penalties to reach this stage of the competition and it may well go to spot kicks again.

For the new custom accent colour customisation, users on the new Open Beta can head over to Settings Display Customisation and choose the colour you like with the new colour wheel.

The OnePlus 5 is getting Open Beta 13, whereas the OnePlus 5T is getting the Open Beta 11. It has also launched its "new self-service and fix cost page" so that users can check the prices of its spare parts. The latest beta software for the phones are big in size, and also bring a lot of changes and improvements. Additionally, the company has also provided some customization to the default launcher app that now features an improved search tag on the app drawer. The Weather app has also been improved, offering a new design that integrates the forecast into a single area. Otherwise users should clear all data and cache from recovery before flashing the latest build.
