If you were disappointed that the OnePlus 5T was launched with Android Nougat instead of Android Oreo, you can now take a sigh of relief if you are on an experimenting spree. OnePlus has just now posted an open OxygenOS beta that will bring the features of Android Oreo to your 5T.
This update will bring in PIP, autofill texts, app shortcuts, and much more to your device.
If you want to use a glitch-free phone then this experiment is clearly not for you. After you have installed it on your phone the data will be wiped out so make sure you keep a back up already.
The device has a 6.01-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160p. It has a dual-camera setup with two 16MP + 20MP rear cameras and another 16MP front camera for selfies. It is available in Black and Gray and has recently been launched in an exclusive Star Wars Last Jedi theme.
The OnePlus 5T weighs 162g and runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It is available in two variants, one that comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while the other comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It also has a 3,300mAh battery.
Here are the steps to install the update
- Download the software built from OnePlus 5T’s link.
- Transfer it to your OnePlus 5T smartphone.
- Turn off your phone and then hold the power and volume button simultaneously.
- In the recovery mode choose the language and select “Install from internal storage”.
