Looks like majority of the OnePlus users are soon upgrading to Android Oreo. The OnePlus 3 has reportedly received the Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade via a close group beta, with the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5 next in line. Also, OnePlus is hoping to rollout a public beta of the new OS by the end of this month.

It is interesting though that the OnePlus 3 has received the beta before the newer OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5. It is just that the OnePlus 3 is facing issues with NFC, Wi-Fi, hotspot, and Bluetooth. In fact, in a message to the closed beta, OnePlus itself mentioned that there was a high chance that OTAs/upgrades could go poorly, so many would have to take logs if anything went wrong.

Further, while the newer OnePlus smartphones are still running or hoping to receive a beta for the new OS, the OnePlus 2 has already received the upgrade. However, do note, the upgrade is unofficial and comes via LineageOS 15 based on Android 8.0 Oreo. ALSO READ: OnePlus 3T gets flat Rs 4,000 discount to celebrate 1,000 days of OnePlus in India
For a while now, OnePlus 2 users have been visibly sidelined by the company when it comes to OTA updates. These users had been waiting for a long time to receive an official update to Android 7.0 Nougat, but the last official build of OxygenOS for the device was based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Fortunately, OnePlus custom development community has always been strong, and so the developers have released builds of LineageOS 15 bringing the latest Android upgrade to the device.
This initial release for OnePlus 2 was made available yesterday, and it has already been updated to revision 3. As usual with these early builds, this is to be considered an alpha and there are some bugs you should be aware of. A lot of stuff does work though, including RIL, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, hotspot, fingerprint scanner, VoLTE, and the sensors like GPS. However, XDA Developers reports that there still are some things that currently do not work, and are being debugged at this time. The developers are working on the camera, alert slider, offline gestures, among other things. ALSO READ: Experimental Android 8.0 Oreo build for OnePlus One now available; here s how to install
