When is my OnePlus 5 getting the Android Oreo update? 'Soon, bro,' says Carl Pei

After posting the above teaser video for the Android 8 Oreo updates that will be rolling to the OnePlus stable in the near future, the CEO Carl Pei took his time to answer a question about when said update will be arriving to the company's flagship OnePlus 5. "Soon, bro" is the exact phrase that Mr Pei used to indicate that an open Oreo beta for the OnePlus 5 is in the cards. 

The Android 8.0 Beta preview for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T was announced by the company last week, and now it seems that the current flagship phone will be getting the goods, too. OnePlus usually rolls these public betas before the official update for early adopters to cup a feel, and then releases the final version for every owner to enjoy after it has ironed out the inevitable bugs. 

There you have it, this is another thing to wait on from OnePlus besides the next 6 or 5T flagship hits the tape later this season.
