OxygenOS Open Betas for the OnePlus 5 and 5T now support Project Treble

The latest Pixel models, including Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, already included the new development, but OnePlus phones (which also received Android Oreo updates) were now unavailable.

The support for Project Treble on the OnePlus 5 and 5T suggests that both the handsets will receive faster Android updates over their predecessors. Yes, OnePlus has now rolled out Project Treble support for the OnePlus 5 and 5T officially. OnePlus says that users who were not running the earlier Open Beta 12 for OnePlus 5 and Open Beta 10 for OnePlus 5T, will need to flash the builds before updating. A few months ago, Android received a new Vendor Interface, which is largely what Project Treble is about. The OxygenOS Open Beta program of the company carries out these functionalities and also provides the latest security updates from time to time.

"After several months of evaluation and hard work, we finally found a solution to make this possible, and we are very excited to share this good news with you", gushes OnePlus in the release notes for the OxygenOS open beta. Both these phones are from previous year, and the latest betas are based on Android 8.1 Oreo. This new Open Beta update brings in a lot of new features to the smartphones, including the much-awaited Project Treble support.

The two smartphone that the company has officialized in 2017 - OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T - are respectively obtaining a new OxygenOS Open Beta 13 (the first) and an Open Beta 11 (the second). HDR settings are now kept from the last time app was used while editing experience in the Gallery has been optimized together with the editing experience in Gallery. In addition, the new versions offer some other features and optimizations, including an updated and improved user interface. The hidden app list and toolbox has also been improved. You also get improved search tags in the app drawer along with a new "New Installs" category tag in the app drawer. OnePlus also optimised logic for the contact page in the OnePlus Dialer app, and the OnePlus Weather app has been completely redesigned. Otherwise users should clear all data and cache from recovery before flashing the latest build.
