OnePlus 5, 5T Get Support For Project Treble With The Latest OxygenOS

It cuts down the amount of work manufacturers have to do to get Android upgrades ready for their own phones, which in theory should mean speedier roll outs.

Shortly after scheduling software maintenance for its smartphones, OnePlus is now pushing Open Betas of OxygenOS to OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus' latest model OnePlus 6 already supports Project Treble, and the China-based company will soon release the stable versions of OxygenOS that would feature the project.

On the other hand, the new beta build will bring changes to the OxygenOS interface by adding support for accent colours, alongside improvements to the launcher, phone and weather app. OnePlus has announced the OxygenOS Open Beta 13 and Open Beta 11 for the OnePlus 5 and 5T respectively, which brings new features including the Project Treble compatibility.

This means, that the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T will be in the first phase of smartphones to receive Android P update in the future. 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. 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. Now, though, support has been added to the latest version of the Oxygen OS beta designed for last year's phones. HDR settings are now kept from the last time app was used while editing experience in the Gallery has been optimized together with the editing experience in Gallery.

One of the highly requested features from OnePlus 5 and 5T users are official Project Treble support and custom accent colour customisation. What is that new user interface they are talking about? 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. The Phone app also gets some changes in its interface, with improved logic for the contacts list. "If not, you should clear all data and cache from recovery before flashing the latest build".
