OnePlus 3 and 3T could be among the first Android devices to receive the latest Android 8.0.0 Oreo update. The closed beta program have already begun and several testers received the Android 8.0.0 update via OnePlus beta program. Also, we have also seen the Hydrogen OS 8.0.0 build for OnePlus 3T that was leaked earlier. The same may have happened with the OnePlus 3 as the OxygenOS 5.0 based on Oreo is just showed up.
So OnePlus 3 users may soon receive the official Oxygen OS 5.0 based OTA update onto their device. The manufacturer seems to be in a hurry as their latest flagship phone OnePus 5 is awaiting the latest Oreo update. Once the OnePlus 3 devices have successfully been updated to Android 8.0.0 Oreo, the company can move onto the current flagship.
Oxygen OS 5.0 based on Android 8.0.0 Oreo for OnePlus 3 spotted
Below are the screenshots from OxygenOS 5.0 for OnePlus 3 based on Android 8.0.0 Oreo. Despite all odds, a user on OnePlus 3 have managed to test and share the screenshots of the new and upcoming OOS update. As per the screenshots, you can see some changes to the notification panel and the quick settings as well.
Another screenshot reveals the Oxygen OS v5.0 and latest Security patch as well. As the language is Chinese, we can’t really tell you much.
When can you expect Oxygen OX 5.0?
Just this week, stable Oxygen OS 4.5.0 rolled out across the globe. So it would be little ridiculous to assume OOS 5.0 to come this early. However, the next Open Beta may be based on the Android v8.0.0. The new OnePlus 3/3T Open Beta 25/16 may come with Oreo build and September 2017 security patch.
As there are 2 beta updates each month the next Open Beta OTA will release on October 2, 2017 (Monday). It is usually 1st day of every month. But as October 1 is Sunday, it won’t be released. Moreover, the stable update rolls out every 2 months. So we may expect the OxygenOS 5.0 roll out in November.
OnePlus 5 spotted running Android 8.0.0 on Geekbench
Usually, the Geekbench rumors come true. But sometimes they just remain a rumor. However, there is no reason to doubt that Android Oreo won’t come for OnePlus 5. As the manufacturer has already promised., it will sure come to the flagship.
Besides, being the 2017 smartphone killer, OnePlus is looking forward to being the first company to release the official Oreo build. They have done it before and may do it again.
If everything goes as planned, then OnePlus 5 will receive the 8.0.0 Oreo update before the end of this year.
