OnePlus 5T gets Android Oreo 8.1 through Oxygen OS Open Beta 4

Now, we have also known that the company has been launching flagship smartphones every successive year and the latest flagship smartphones from OnePlus were named as the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.

Of course, the biggest change with this beta is the fact that you're getting updated to Android 8.1 Oreo, but there are also some other changes afoot here. OnePlus says users should wait for sometime while the selected build is updated to their phone.

Among the features include a new auto pick-up gesture which lets you answer the call by just raising the phone, instead of interacting with the phone to take the call. It also comes packed with general bug fixes and improvements. When it comes to the gaming mode, OnePlus also added some changes here, with new optimizations in gaming mode, for a more immersive gaming experience.

In a statement, Amnesty International said the ruling offered a "glimmer of hope" in a country where media has been hard hit. Since the failed coup, Turkey has been holding a massive crackdown on people it claims are affiliated with Gulen's movement.

OnePlus has been regular with its software updates, and notably rolled out Android Oreo 8.0 to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T well before the new version made it to the new OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. If you work with either OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T, you should register for the open beta program since the software bits are available only for registered users. The update also optimises full-screen gesture support (only for OnePlus 5T) with updating the device to latest February security patch.

OnePlus Switch has also got support for migrating application data which further eases switching between devices. In case you are not an Open Beta user, but interested to get the update on your OnePlus 5T, you need to head to this link: http://downloads.oneplus.net/ to download it. You will be receiving the notification to install the OTA update if you have already flashed a previous Open Beta build. Digging deeper into the OxygenOS Open Beta 4 firmware files, an image has been found which is named as "screendecor_up_img_enchilada_1" as seen above.
