OnePlus 5 Receives Android 8.0 Oreo Beta 2 Update with Facial Recognition and Oreo Features
After the OnePlus 5T Oxygen OS 4.7.2 update, OnePlus is all set to launch the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta program for its predecessor OnePlus 5. Still, users have received the latest Internal Android 8.0 Oreo Beta 2 Update for the OnePlus 5. OnePlus has also rolled out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.
The new Android Oreo update for the OnePlus 5 includes Oreo features like a new Notification Panel UI, new Settings design, Picture in Picture (PIP), Adaptive icons, Autofill, Smart text selection, Notification timeout, and Parallel Apps. Additionally, OnePlus has added several new features, like PIP Mode, new Camera settings, a new app folder design, notification dots, an option to upload photos directly to Shot on OnePlus, and an improved Galley UI. Also, with this new update, Face Unlocking has come to the OnePlus 5T. Moreover, the update includes a security patch until October.
Recently, OnePlus’s Co-founder Carl Pei announced on his Twitter handle that the OnePlus 5 would soon get Android Oreo Beta, which hints that OnePlus is all set to roll out public beta to the OnePlus 5 users. This should make it up to those OnePlus 5 users who were not happy with the launch of the OnePlus 5T having upgraded specs at the same price. Also, there is only a month’s difference between the launch of the two devices.
To enjoy the benefits of these new updates, users can head to the company’s blog post and download the beta Android 8.0 Oreo build for the OnePlus 5. Additional instructions for preparing the handset and manual flashing can be found on the blog post.
