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

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

Project Treble is Google's effort at reducing the time it takes for OEMs to receive the new OS and optimise it for its devices and then push out the update. Apart from the OnePlus 5 and 5T, around 20 other smartphones including the Huawei P10/P10 Plus and LG's V30 have made the jump. It is through a note that the giant says "After several months of evaluation and hard work, we have finally found a solution to make this possible, and we are very happy to share this good news with you.". The OnePlus 6 already supports Project Treble. Last year OnePlus said that their devices would not support Project Treble, but it seems that they have tripped over their stance.

OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, the flagship phones from 2017 will get support for Google's Project Treble with the new Open beta. The latest beta software for the phones are big in size, and also bring a lot of changes and improvements.

Changelog on the Open Beta 13 and 11 for the OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 5, respectively.

Previously, hardware companies had to completely overhaul software code that Google itself admitted was "time consuming and costly". OnePlus had only provided this feature to the OnePlus 6, but have now released it for last years devices as well. The Weather app has also been improved, offering a new design that integrates the forecast into a single area.

Chinese smartphone makers OnePlus are known to provide beta updates to its range of smartphones to enable the users to check out on new features even before they are officially rolled out. Users who have registered for the same on their phones should find the new Open beta 13 and 11 in the settings of their respective devices. The company has also introduced some changes to the default Launcher app, which now comes with improved search tags in the app drawer, "New Installs' category tag in the app drawer and improved app list for hidden space and toolbox".

One of the highly requested features from OnePlus 5 and 5T users are official Project Treble support and custom accent colour customisation.

However because this is still beta software there will undoubtedly be bugs, meaning if you want to download it you should do so on a device that is not your primary phone.
