OxygenOS Open Beta 3, 5 now rolling out for OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 5 respectively

OnePlus has started rolling out the latest OxygenOS Open Beta 3 for the OnePlus 5T and the OxygenOS Open Beta 5 for the OnePlus 5. The new bug fix Open Beta builds bring changes to the phone's UI when receiving a call, system, a new CPU security patch along with a new SMS categorization function exclusively for Indian users. Being an open beta, the updates can be downloaded by anyone, but it should be note that they may face some bugs and stability issues as these are not stable OTAs. 

OnePlus has introduced some improvements and general bug fixes to both the OnePlus 5/5T smartphones with beta updates. The changelog of both the Open Beta builds are nearly the same and the company has removed the Clipboard function, which allegedly sent copied data to Chinese servers. There is also a CPU security patch with serial code CVE-2017-13218 included in both the builds, which helps mitigate some of the risks associated with the Spectre flaw.

The new updates also adds a 'pick-up gesture switcher', which allows users to select whether they want to swipe up or down to receive calls. Finally, the new betas come with a new SMS categorization function. As mentioned earlier, it is exclusive to Indian users and can “auto-sort” SMSes into different categories. 

OnePlus India recently introduced its buyback service for the OnePlus 5T smartphone. The offer can only be availed after a new smartphone order has been placed and customers can provide their old smartphone details to check if their device is eligible for the buyback programme. The exchange is available on select devices and brands such as Apple, Asus, OnePlus, Micromax, Motorola, Oppo and more. You can read more about it here.

The OnePlus 5T (review) is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with options of 6GB or 8GB RAM. It features 6.01-inch 18:9 Optic AMOLED display with a 2160x1080p resolution and runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, which is upgradable to Android Oreo. The smartphone is available in two storage options of 64GB and 128GB. It sports a dual 16MP + 20MP rear camera setup and a 16MP front-facing camera. It packs a 3300mAh battery.
