OnePlus : 5 and 5T now have Treble in a stable manner

The company's two smartphones from 2017 - OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T - are now getting a new OxygenOS Open Beta 13 an Open Beta 11 respectively. While the firm has done a pretty good job of supporting its handsets over the past year, the new release is important, mainly because it features support for Google's Project Treble. It even confirmed that the OnePlus 5 and 5T would not receive this feature. If you have signed up for the Open Beta program by installing a beta software on your device, then you should be receiving the latest update via OTA. OnePlus originally said it was skipping on Treble because it requires a storage partition, and since all OnePlus devices lack the necessary partition, there was a chance they'd brick. In August a year ago, Google engineers on an Android Developers Backstage podcast episode confirmed that they are working with OEMs to bring Project Treble to a mass level.

OnePlus is now seeding new Open Beta software for the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T.

"In the list of other new additions that come with the latest OxygenOS build, you'll notice a lot of UI-based improvements and tweaks, such as a new design for OnePlus" weather app and a new UI for the system app. OnePlus 6 already has an Android P beta live.

A new user interface, supported accent colour customization with the option to customise any colour with the colour wheel. The company is planning to launch the second version "soon" and will launch in the official update after the optimizations are stable.

The Oxygen OS Open Beta updates for both devices are rolling out to adopters and include Project Treble support, an overhauled interface, and an upgraded app drawer.

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.
