OnePlus 5/5T to get Android 8.1 update soon

Also note, once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs and will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs. Those running the open beta on their OnePlus 5T smartphones will get this as an Over-The-Air update.

Android security fixes for the month of February are also included in the update. Coolest one, the Phone app gets an update that includes a new auto pickup gesture, which can allow the user to pick up the incoming call by the raising phone (such type of gestures were introduced by Samsung, since Galaxy S5).

The OxygenOS Open Beta 6 version comes with general bug fixes and performance improvements, but no other details about camera upgrade or any other performance based upgrades has been mentioned yet.

The OnePlus 5T Android 8.1 Oreo update also adds more clock styles for ambient display and full-screen gesture support. There is no word from OnePlus regarding the older phones' 3/3T 8.1 updates as they are on Android 8.0 already.

Browns trade QB DeShone Kizer to Packers. That's good for all parties
For the Browns , the appeal is obvious: They get a talented cornerback with pedigree to add to a secondary that lacks playmakers. Earlier, the Browns agreed to acquire quarterback Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo and Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry from Miami.

OnePlus also infused improvements for gaming mode including the ability to turn off adaptive brightness. Users can also report bugs they find using the bug report forums by posting on the OnePlus forums.

According to the official OnePlus forums, the changelog of the latest Open Beta 5 for the OnePlus 5T upgrades the system to Android 8.1 Oreo. It can be downloaded from the OnePlus website.

The latest OxygenOS beta released for OnePlus 5T contains the overlay image attached above which shows that the display will have a cutout so as to optimize the apps for this cutout. This will open the recovery mode. OnePlus says users should wait for sometime while the selected build is updated to their phone. OnePlus hasn't said how many betas there will be before the stable version rolls out, but where this is the sixth beta, it should be rolling out pretty soon.
