Faster software updates are coming to the OnePlus 5 and 5T

It was started by the company ahead of the release of Android 8.0 Oreo previous year.

The support for Project Treble on the OnePlus 5 and 5T suggests that both the handsets will receive faster Android updates over their predecessors. Interestingly, OnePlus has refused to provide Project Treble support on its older smartphones. It even confirmed that the OnePlus 5 and 5T would not receive this feature.

In the latest OxygenOS open beta (v13 for OP5 and v11 for OP5T), OnePlus has included a number of changes. The solution will thus shorten the process of updating Android OS which has been slow for several OEMs and will also encourage developers to make custom ROMs for beta testers.

OnePlus said it has finally found a solution to implementing support for Project Treble, after originally stating that the devices would not support the feature. Now, though, support has been added to the latest version of the Oxygen OS beta designed for last year's phones.

Back during the keynote speech at I/O, Google updated people on something called Project Treble, the latest project created to get third-party manufacturers to roll out Android updates more quickly. Additionally, the new versions bring some other features and optimisations including new accent colours and a refreshed user interface. 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. What is that new user interface they are talking about? The former is getting OxygenOS Open Beta 13, while the latter is being upgraded to OxygenOS Open Beta 11. The hidden app list and toolbox has also been improved. The Weather app has also been improved, offering a new design that integrates the forecast into a single area. The company has also introduced some changes to the default Launcher app, which now includes improved search tags, "New Installations" category tags in the apps section, and an app list improvement. Otherwise, you should clear all data and cache from recovery before flashing the latest build. Note that flashing will wipe the contents of the phone, and users will need to back up their data first.
