OnePlus was one of the first companies to roll out a stable Android Pie update for a non-Pixel device back in September (even before Nokia began to get the fresh goodie packages), but last year's OnePlus 5 and 5T still stuck with its Oreo building.
Probably not long, but the first international Open Beta software based on Android 9.0 is now available for both OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5. It's always hard to predict how much time it takes to iron out the last moments and start deliver official, comprehensive updates to the masses, but if you want to help speed up the process, you know what to do.
If you own a 5T or OP5 and have already blinked an Open Beta building, you should receive this latest update instantly over-the-air without having to do much. Instead, if you want to migrate from the stable channel to the beta path, you will remember that official stable OTAs will stop when you follow these flashing instructions.
As always, all feedback will be appreciated as OnePlus will try to fix errors and improve system stability as soon as possible. It's easier than ever to report an error for public beta testers, as the Feedback tool is now nicely integrated into community app.
Android Pie-based OxygenOS Open Beta 22 and Open Beta 20 updates for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T provides a large number of improvements to the table, starting with a "brand new" user interface and "brand new" navigation certificate (5T only).
There is a new non-disturb mode in the tube with adjustable settings, various "background application processing optimizations", a few bug fixes, and specific improvements for the communication and host applications, and last but not least, November security updates. Bottom line, there is quite a lot to be excited about.
