The latest Open Beta is already based on Android 9 Pie. This is simply a bug fix and optimization upgrade. Earlier, we have seen Gaming mode enhancements, added weather information to clock widget, fixed WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth connectivity issues, improved network strength along with support  for 4G VoLTE in some countries. Major improvements came for physical or capacitive navigation buttons not working on OnePlus 5 at times. We also have the latest Oxygen OS 9.0.4 stable OTA update available for download for OnePlus 5 and 5T.

Google can release Android Q Developer Preview anytime soon this month. According to sources, the Android Q beta will be available for more devices than previous year. OnePlus 6 and 6T could be among the first few devices to receive Android 10. Sooner or later, when the stable Android Q update has been released, you will see it coming for OnePlus 5 and 5T in the beta channel.
