OnePlus has been working to bring the latest version of Android to all its latest devices. Last week the company rolled out Android 8.0 Oreo to the OnePlus 3 and 3T, and now it’s the OnePlus 5’s turn.
The Open Beta Program for the OnePlus 5 is now live, which brings Android 8.0 Oreo, UI tweaks, and more to the company’s first flagship of 2017.
With Android 8.0 Oreo, the OnePlus 5 will gain plenty of useful features like picture-in-picture mode, improved auto-fill, smart text selection, notification dots, and much more. To learn all about Oreo, check out our full review here.

However, the latest news from OnePlus seems positive. Just a few hours ago, on its official Facebook page, the company teased that “5omething new” is coming soon. The message arrived alongside an image of the two flavors of the OnePlus 5 currently available and an uncolored outline of a third OnePlus 5 unit.
As could be expected, some users in the comments [...]
With the OnePlus 5 now in many people’s hands, there is plenty to consider with what has been the company’s best effort to date. With a second camera that brings proper zoom, we have yet another dual camera in the Android space.
