Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus had earlier rolled out its open beta 27 ROM for the OnePlus 5 and 25 ROM for OnePlus 5T. Now, the company has rolled out the version 13 of their open beta build for OnePlus 6 and the fifth version of the open beta build for its current flagship, OnePlus 6T.
The latest updates for the smartphones bring new improvements and bug fixes over the previous operating system. Other than that, the update doesn’t bring any major change over the older software.
However, we must mention that the updates are not stable as currently both are in the beta version. Like any other beta program, these updates are released so that both the users and the company can learn from it. The users will get to experience the new features that the new stable update will bring and the company will get to learn what changes they need to make before the final stable update is released. It is in this time that smartphone companies ensure that their next stable update is bug-free. OnePlus has also asked the users to give feedback about the new beta update so that they can make amendments to provide a better OS than the current one.
Although all OnePlus users would not be eligible for the update, but those who have enrolled for the open beta program of OxygenOS for OnePlus will be getting an OTA (over-the-air) on their smartphone. The update will be available to the enrolled users over the course of few days.
The beta update for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T – OxygenOS open beta 27 and 25 – also brings gaming mode enhancement for the devices. Although what enhancements the update will bring is not known yet. Apart from the gaming mode enhancement, the update will also add weather information to the world clock application.
On the other hand, the beta update for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T namely OxygenOS open beta 13 and 5 will bring bug fixes of the previous OS along with minor improvements. The update will include stability improvement for the video calling. It also fixes the lag experienced when setting up an alarm.
