Open betas are meant to give the general public a chance to try out prerelease software, and also a way for a company to test that software ahead of an actual public launch.
OnePlus is not a stranger to running prerelease software for its handsets out in the wild ahead of a public rollout of new software.
A growing number of OnePlus 3/3T and OnePlus 5/5T owners are complaining about serious battery woes with their device after updating their handset to OxygenOS 5.1.6/8.
OnePlus today started rolling out OxygenOS 5.1.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo for the OnePlus 5 and 5T. Apart from the latest version of Oreo, the update also bumps the Android security patch to April.
Not even five months after it was first released, the OnePlus 5T is no longer available for sale in the United States. OnePlus has depleted its stock of the OnePlus 5T for North America and does not expect to replenish it either. The company says that the stock outage is due to stronger-than-expected demand.
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.
