OnePlus five house owners won a pleasing wonder these days. Open Beta 6 has a reasonably necessary exchange in tow; it brings the telephone as much as Android eight.1. Different adjustments are alongside for the experience, too, however the spotlight is the bottom OS model bump.

As same old, I’ve the changelog:

Upgraded machine to Android eight.1 Oreo


  • Added New auto select up gesture – solution incoming name by means of elevating the telephone
  • Added world roaming answer

Gaming mode

  • Added new optimizations in gaming mode for immersive gaming revel in together with
  • notifications blocking off, energy saving and pausing adaptive brightness


  • Added extra clock kinds for ambient show
  • Optimized complete display screen gesture enhance (that is just for 5T)
  • Up to date Android safety patch to 2018-02

OnePlus Transfer

  • Supported knowledge migration for software backup

The spotlight, being the replace to eight.1, is apparent and already said. The brand new select up gesture to reply to telephone calls is neat, I suppose, as are the enhancements to gaming mode (which I’ve now not as soon as used on my OP5/OP5T, so no matter). I’m excited to peer further ambient show clock choices may be excellent, making an allowance for that I’m individually now not keen on the default. In any case, we will see that the OnePlus five is getting the February safety patch.

Of word is that, in spite of this being pulled from the OnePlus five web page, the changelog mentions optimized full-screen gesture enhance for the 5T, which we noticed within the remaining Open Beta for that telephone — the horribly-formatted changelog at the discussion board publish does now not have the 5T gesture point out, on the other hand.

I additionally overlooked that the OP5 didn’t have OnePlus Transfer, the app this is intended to make knowledge migration between telephones more straightforward. Anyway, if you wish to hop on the most recent and largest for OnePlus’ first 2017 flagship, then you’ll be able to accomplish that by the use of the hyperlinks under. Simply flash the zip within the inventory restoration and you are excellent to head; going again would require a complete wipe, on the other hand.
