OnePlus 5 and 5T confirmed to receive Android Q updates this year
OnePlus has made an important announcement yesterday concerning some its slightly older flagships, the OnePlus 5/5T and OnePlus 6/6T. Apparently, many of the unique features that have been included in the OnePlus 7 Pro won't remain exclusive to this phone. Also, the OnePlus 5 and 5T will receive the upcoming Android Q update at some point this year.

Along with the OnePlus 6/6T, the slightly older OnePlus 5/5T phones will get some nifty new features like Fnatic Mode, Zen Mode, Screen Recorder, Quick reply in landscape mode, DC dimming, and RAM boost.

Now, as some of you may already know, OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 6/6T are already compatible with the latest Android Q Developer Preview, but the OnePlus 5/5T will probably not get access to these beta builds.

If you're not familiar with OnePlus' practices when it comes to major Android OS update, we'll just have to put you up to speed. Apparently, there are no ETAs concerning Android Q's release, so we're hoping at least some of OnePlus' phones will get it by the end of the year, but ideally all three models.
