[Leaked] OnePlus 5 Android Oreo Beta Build For Download

 

Whenever OnePlus announce that they are testing a new OS, they usually do internal testing and after that they move to a closed beta and then expand to an open beta program. Currently, the company is testing Android 8.0 Oreo update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T as an open beta and will roll it out as a stable build when it’s ready. But today, a leaked build of Android 8.0 Oreo from the closed beta for the OnePlus 5 has been posted publically.




This is quite interesting that OnePlus announced the Oreo open beta for the OnePlus 3/3T before the OnePlus 5 because usually OEMs gives more priority to their latest devices.  OnePlus 5 owners can also join in on the Android Oreo fun thanks to a leaked build sent in to 24/7 Techie.

Take a note that, this is a closed beta build and it is not made for daily driver devices. They have even acknowledged that the OxygenOS ROM is not stable right now and that it is the very first closed beta build the team at OnePlus put together. Because we are going from one major OS to another, we recommend that you backup your data and do a clean flash (ie. factory reset before flashing) instead of a dirty flash.


This build has Android 8.0 Oreo’s new features including picture-in-picture mode for applications that support it. Also, Google’s Project Treble is not implemented in this particular version.
