OnePlus 5 spotted running Android 8.0 Oreo, beta testing may commence soon

3
There's no doubt OnePlus will update at least three of its smartphones to Android 8.0 Oreo, but it's still unclear when exactly that will happen. Fortunately, those who enrolled in the beta program can already test new Oreo builds that OnePlus releases.

However, Android Oreo beta updates have only been released for OnePlus 3 and 3T. Even though the company's newest flagship, the OnePlus 5 will be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo as well, OnePlus may have decided to test the update in-house.

A few days ago, the smartphone was spotted at Geekbench running Android Oreo, which suggests that the first beta builds may hit the OnePlus 5 very soon.

Either way, we expect OnePlus to push OxygenOS updates based on Android 8.0 Oreo to all three high-end smartphones by the end of the year. It wouldn't be the first time the Chinese company manages to release major Android OS updates for its flagships by the year's end.

With three months left until the end of 2017, there's plenty of time for OnePlus to deliver Oreo updates for all three smartphones; just have patience.
