Last year, OnePlus confirmed that it will roll out the Android 10 update for all the devices after OnePlus 5. The Chinese smartphone maker has already released the latest Android OS to those who were on the company’s list. The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are the only phones that are yet to receive the Android 10 update. Both the handsets will likely get the stable Android 10 update in the second quarter of 2020.

The company has started rolling out Android 10 open beta update for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. This means that these OnePlus devices will get the Android 10 update in the coming weeks once this rollout is successful. The newly released Oxygen OS update adds Android 10 features, including improved privacy controls and more. You also get a brand new UI design that will offer beta users light and fluid experience, as per the company.

The software update also offers Android 10-based full-screen gestures and a new ‘Game Space’ feature. It also brings the ability to block spam by keywords for Message. Do note that the update is available for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T unlocked non-carrier variants. So, it will not work with carrier-locked models. The 5T smartphone also gets a hidden bar with the update.

It is worth noting that Open Beta is not the stable version of the update. OnePlus will also check the update for bugs and feedback from users before rolling out the stable version. Users are advised to back up their phone’s data before proceeding with the upgrade. The stable Android 10 update could be released sometime in  May this year.

To recall, both the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T were launched back in 2017. The smartphones are powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood. Both the handsets offer dual-camera setup at the back. The handsets were launched with Android 7 OS.
