OnePlus 5 running Android 8.0 Oreo spotted on Geekbench. This listing dates back to September 25, though it’s now making the rounds. The OnePlus 5, as most of you know, ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, with OnePlus’ OxygenOS installed on top of it, though OnePlus release a closed beta test of Android 8.0 Oreo quite recently.
The company actually said that an open beta will probably launch by the end of this month for the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5, which means that the final build might arrive sooner than most of us were hoping for at first.
Notably, this is not the device of any user of the smartphone and we need to wait for the same to be rolled out to the users. As the smartphone was spotted running the latest iteration of the Android OS, we can expect it to soon relish the Oreo flavor.
OnePlus has already confirmed that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will also receive the Oreo update. However, the devices launched before 2016 will not get the taste of Oreo. Recently, the company released a beta build of Android 8.0 Oreo to a select group of OnePlus 3 users tipping that the stable build will be rolled out in the coming months.
A few days back, OnePlus teased the Oreo update to the OnePlus 5 on its official Twitter handle. The tweet tipped that the update will be launched sometime around Christmas. Given that OnePlus is one company that rolls out timely updates to its smartphones, we can come to a conclusion that the Oreo update to the smartphone will not take a long time.
For those who are not aware, the Android 8.0 Oreo update will roll out features such as picture-in-picture mode, autofill for apps, and other such features to the OnePlus 5, OnePlus 3 and 3T.
