OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T Android 10 open beta update released

OnePlus already confirmed that OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T users will get Android 10 update in Q2 2020. Now it has released Android 10 open beta update for the phones ahead of stable roll out.

The new Oxygen OS update for OnePlus 5and OnePlus 5T brings Android 10, with it a brand-new UI design, enhanced location permissions for privacy, new customisation feature in settings. The change log also includes Android 10 Full-Screen Gestures (5T only), new ‘Game Space’ feature, Smart display and also adds the ability to block spam by keywords for Message. This Build is only for OnePlus 5/5T unlocked Non-Carrier variants, so this update does not work with Carrier-locked models.

Users who are still on OBT builds for 5/5T can update to this build only via update from recovery. As this is an Open Beta Version(OBT) and not the stable build(MP version), OnePlus says that there are known issues like application compatibility issues, system lag and stability issues.

You can download the beta links for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T here, and it is recommended to back up data before proceeding with the upgrade since it will completely wipe all the data on your phone. The stable update is expected to be released sometime in late May or early June 2020. Check out the changelog below.

  • System
    • Brand new UI design brings light and fluid experience
    • Updated to Android 10
  • Full Screen Gesture (OP5T Only)
