OnePlus has had an intriguing rollout for Android 8.0 Oreo on its smartphones this year. The OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, and OnePlus 5 already have the stable Oreo build rolling out, while the latest OnePlus 5T still hasn't received a beta version, up until now. The company on Wednesday has hinted that an open beta version for the OnePlus 5T will be available soon.
As we mentioned, a tweet posted on the OnePlus Deutschland (German) official Twitter handle mentions that the Android 8.0 Oreo open beta rollout for the OnePlus 5T 'starts now'. This comes as a breather for OnePlus 5T owners who had been promised an Oreo update at the time of the product launch.
Despite the announcement, there seems to be no open beta update available currently for the OnePlus 5, and there is no timeline regarding its imminent arrival as well. It is, although, a big indication that we might see it rolling out in the near feature.
