OnePlus has officially launched their latest smartphone, the OnePlus 5T alongside its kernel source. On inspecting the kernel, XDA Developers have reported that the smartphone may not exhibit the “Jelly Scrolling” effect. When the OnePlus 5 was launched, many users reported of observing a “Jelly Scrolling” effect, which displayed stretched out content while scrolling their twitter feed on a web page. Back then, XDA had reported that according to the smartphone’s kernel code, its display placement was upside down. This was said to be the reason behind the scrolling effect.
