If you are a OnePlus user, then you should be confident by now that OnePlus brings new updates to older devices whenever possible. It looks like the OnePlus 5 and 5T will be the latest to get the stable Android 10 update. The information comes from the OnePlus Forum where users are posting screenshots of the update coming to the OnePlus 5 and 5T. The OnePlus 5 and 5T launched back in 2017.

OnePlus 5 and 5T Android 10 details

The screenshot of the update posted by the users has all the details of the features coming to the smartphone. The OnePlus 5T Oxygen OS 10.0.0 is 1875MB in size and brings with it a host of features. To start with, it updates the smartphone to Android 10 and brings a brand new UI design. It also brings enhanced location permission for privacy and new customization features in the settings allowing you to choose icon shapes to be displayed in the quick settings. 

The update also brings a new Game Space feature that allows you to add your favourite games in one place for easier access. 

The update also lets users block spam by keywords for Messages. The update also brings full-screen gestures. 

The OnePlus 5T was also the first phone to get a special edition in the form of a Star Wars special edition. Speaking of special editions, it looks like the partnership between OnePlus and Mclaren has ended. The OnePlus 6T and the OnePlus 7T Pro were the 2 devices to get a Mclaren edition. If there was one device that embodied the DNA of the McLaren formula more than the special editions was a device that was never released to the public. It was the OnePlus Concept One. As the name suggests the device was a concept and wasn't released to the public, but we got our hands on the device and you can check out our hands-on in the video below. The unique thing about the OnePlus Concept One was the fact that it had a disappearing camera. OnePlus used electrochromic glass technology to hide the rear cameras on the handset, the same as what is seen on Mclaren 720S. It also has the same papaya orange colour found on the McLaren car and the signature stitching found on the seats of the 720S. You can read more about OnePlus and McLaren's partnership here.
