And for the others running the official updates and want to get the pre-release beta versions can head to the below-mentioned links respective to their OnePlus devices to download the Android Oreo beta version along with the instructions to install it. Note that there is now no info on OnePlus 5 Open Beta support, at present it is not supported and OnePlus has not said when we can expect to see it integrated into the beta program.

For the OnePlus 3, the beta version 25 has been released, while it's beta 16 for the newer OnePlus 3T. In this article, we will be sharing some valuable information for the OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphone, so if you are a using either of the two devices then don't go anywhere as OnePlus 3 and 3T has received the Oreo update, let's dig a bit deep into this. As we all know at some point Beta is not comparable to the final built as it has some bugs and issues which a brand solves over time.

With the launch of OnePlus 5, there were fears that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will also meet the same fate.

Naturally, an Oreo ROM means access to some exciting new features Google baked right into the Android core, like picture in picture mode. The update also includes design changes in Quick Settings.

Developer Christopher Moore first noticed this type of activity, revealing in a blog post that OnePlus collected quite a lot of his personal data, including "mobile network (s) names and IMSI prefixes, as well as my wireless network ESSID and BSSID and, of course, the phone's serial number". The Chinese company has now made the Android 8.0 OS available for Open beta testers. The sensor may be slower than before.

Users should also be able to face some stability issues with the NFC and Bluetooth.

OnePlus also states that by installing the beta software, it will wipe app and cache data, but anything saved on the internal storage, such as pictures and videos, will be safe. The OnePlus team is still working on optimizations for third-party apps' compatibility and performance. The people who are already running a beta build on their OnePlus device should have already got a notification for the Oreo update.
