OnePlus had promised to release Android 8.0 Oreo for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T a couple of months back. The company followed through on its promise recently and released the Oreo update for the aforementioned devices. The OnePlus 5 is next. While the device might be discontinued soon, the company will continue to provide software support. The OnePlus 5 Oreo beta program has now been launched by OnePlus.
OnePlus unveiled its new flagship smartphone recently, the OnePlus 5T. It comes with several improvements and Face Unlock is one of the new features. It enables users to scan their face to control access to their device. A new report suggests that the OnePlus 5 might also get the Face Unlock feature when its Android 8.0 Oreo update is released in the coming months.
Back in 2016 and in the early part of 2017, Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus appeared to dominate pretty much all of the competition when it came to speed tests, at least until the OnePlus 5 came along and we had a new winner. However with the iPhone X and its new A11 Bionic hexa-core chipset, how does the phone fare?
With the OnePlus 5T having been officially announced, we’re sure some are wondering what will become of the OnePlus 5? Does OnePlus plan on keeping two flagships around? One priced cheaper than the other? That’s pretty much the plan, at least for now until the OnePlus 5’s stock has been depleted.
Earlier this year when the OnePlus 5 was launched, it seemed that some users had noticed a weird effect on the display when scrolling. It almost appeared to be jelly-like in nature and gave off the illusion that maybe the phone was lagging (it wasn’t). It was an odd effect and the good news is that the OnePlus 5T could avoid that issue.
The OnePlus 5T will be the company’s next smartphone and this has been confirmed by OnePlus and their upcoming event in New York. However what is unclear is the pricing of the phone, which last we heard could be kept under $600, with some rumors suggesting that it could be priced the same as the OnePlus 5 whose base model starts at $479.
There have been a lot of rumors and reports about the OnePlus 5T recently. The company is expected to launch this new handset in the near future, even though OnePlus is yet to officially confirm the existence of this handset. A new leak suggests that the OnePlus 5T launch could take place on November 16th. Previous reports have also suggested that OnePlus might launch the new handset in the month […]
Ever since the OnePlus 5 went out of stock, there were rumors that perhaps the company is going to release a new handset soon. OnePlus did launch the OnePlus 3T around the same time last year so naturally, the rumors have been about a OnePlus 5T. The company itself has said nothing so far to suggest that it’s working on such a device. A new OnePlus 5T leaked render suggests […]
OnePlus has been testing Android 8.0 Oreo beta firmware for its handsets but it’s yet to confirm precisely when the major Android update will be released publicly for compatible smartphones. OnePlus CEO Carl Pei was recently asked on Twitter when the company intended to release Android 8.0 beta for OnePlus. His response was that the beta update is going to be out “soon.”
OnePlus smartphones have generally been well received. That was the response from the market for the OnePlus 5 as well. If you decide to purchase one now you might find it difficult to get your hands on one, though. All models of the OnePlus 5 are now out of stock in the United States. The availability is very limited in other markets across the globe as well. This thus fuels […]
The design of smartphones these days has indeed come a very long way from when they were first introduced, although in some cases we wouldn’t exactly call them fashionable, which is why some users choose to accessorize their smartphones with cases and keychains and what not, but OnePlus has you covered.

If you’ve been meaning to purchase the OnePlus 5 but didn’t want to buy it in the Midnight Black or Slate Gray color, perhaps the Soft Gold will entice you enough to open your wallet. The company today announced that the Limited Edition OnePlus 5 is available for purchase starting today. The company has decided to offer this color option with the OnePlus 5 after the popularity of the Soft […]
