OnePlus today released a new Open Beta build of OxygenOS for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. Apart from fixing bugs and including a patch for the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerability, the latest OxygenOS beta also includes new gestures.
OnePlus today unveiled the Lava Red variant of the OnePlus 5T in India. This is the first time that OnePlus has launched a red color variant of any of its smartphone.
The OnePlus 5T looks beautiful in its new limited-edition Sandstone White finish. But you should not buy it.
When the OnePlus 5T launched, it was available only in Midnight Black. Since then, the handset has seen special edition colors in certain regions, including Lava Red in China and Star Wars-themed white in India. But now there is one additional color unveiled for a wider audience.
For OnePlus 5T owners out there that want to try a beta version of Android 8.0 Oreo, ahead of the public launch, the company has officially opened things up.
To ensure that OnePlus 5T owners are not feeling left out, OnePlus today released the first beta OxygenOS build of Android 8.0 Oreo for the handset. The update brings all the Oreo-y goodness introduced by Google along with some enhancements from OnePlus’ part to OxygenOS.
After rolling out the Oreo update for the OnePlus 5 as a Christmas gift, OnePlus is rolling out the first beta OxygenOS build of Android Oreo for the OnePlus 5T. This should make owners of the company’s latest flagship handset quite happy as they must be feeling left out after seeing older OnePlus flagships being updated to Oreo.
The OnePlus 5T is still relatively new in the market and is perhaps one of the best Android phones to buy right now. In terms of the features it brings to the table, Face Unlock appears to be a key highlight, given that it’s a first for the lineup. A new report claims that OnePlus’ implementation of this feature could be infringing on a handful of patents held by American company Sensible Vision.
The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T both have displays that support 1080p HD content, but the devices don’t actually support streaming content at that resolution.
The OnePlus 5T is the ‘T’ successor to the excellent OnePlus 5 from earlier this year. While the handset sports largely the same specifications as the 5, OnePlus have made some key design improvements and added some noteworthy new features.
