OxygenOS Open Beta seeds Project Treble support for OnePlus 5/5T

OxygenOS Open Beta seeds Project Treble support for OnePlus 5/5T

For those joining us late, Project Treble is Google's latest initiative to get Android phones running more recent software more quickly.

Beyond Android Oreo's debut, it's been up to a manufacturer's discretion whether or not a phone that was upgrading to Oreo would be Treble compatible - there is more work involved, after all.

Even with the successful response and release of the OnePlus 6, the company is still making strides to its previous flagship phones making them better with each software update.

"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", says the OnePlus forum post for Project Treble. Interestingly, OnePlus has refused to provide Project Treble support on its older smartphones.

Fortnite: This is When Playground Mode is Leaving
In Fortnite Playground v2, Epic Games is hoping to give players the ability to choose teams, in groups of 1v1 or 2v2. Epic Games has said that the current Fortnite Playground limited time mode will be switched off on Thursday July 12.

This means, that the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T will be in the first phase of smartphones to receive Android P update in the future.

Support for Project Treble on OnePlus 5 and 5T suggests that both handsets will receive Android updates faster than their predecessors. With Project Treble, OEMs don't need to change the customer UI to roll out an Android update. Last year OnePlus said that their devices would not support Project Treble, but it seems that they have tripped over their stance.

If you still want to try it out, then install Open Beta 13 on the OnePlus 5T and Open Beta 11 on the OnePlus 5 smartphone.

A new user interface, more colour customisation options and an improved launcher are just some of the new perks coming to OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T owners. 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. It has also launched its "new self-service and fix cost page" so that users can check the prices of its spare parts. Some other minor features included are optimised logic for the contacts page and a new design with improved user experience. Additionally, the company has also provided some customization to the default launcher app that now features an improved search tag on the app drawer. Otherwise users should clear all data and cache from recovery before flashing the latest build.
