How often does a three-year-old phone receive a major Android OS upgrade? Rarely, unless that phone is Google’s own. However, OnePlus continues to be a bright spot in this regard. Need a fresh example? The company is upgrading the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T to Android 10, both of which were launched in 2017.

OnePlus has released this build to collect feedback and quash bugs before the stable Android 10 update is released.


Listed below is the changelog of Android 10 Open Beta 1 update for the OnePlus 5 and 5T:


  • Brand new UI design brings light and fluid experience
