Recently OnePlus started to roll out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the OnePlus 5 and for those who are using the OnePlus 5T, it looks like it could soon be your turn. In a tweet sent out by OnePlus’ Germany account, it seems that they are teasing that the open beta for Android 8.0 Oreo for the OnePlus 5T could be coming soon.
Note that this is the open beta and not the final build, which means that there could potentially still be some bugs left, but at the same time the company seems to be pretty confident enough to open up the beta to OnePlus 5T users who wouldn’t mind participating in it. No word on when it will be released, but based on the image in the tweet (see above) it looks like it should already be available, or at least not too far off.

So far only the Germany account has tweeted this piece of news, but we expect that once it starts rolling out it should eventually reach to other markets that the OnePlus 5T is available in. There is no telling when the final build will be made available following the open beta, but hopefully it won’t be too long, assuming that the beta testing goes according to plan.
So far Android 8.0 Oreo isn’t off to a great start, having only been installed on 0.5% of Android devices to date, but we are seeing more OEMs starting to push out the update so hopefully those numbers will increase the next time Android’s stats are updated.
