In recent times, OnePlus has been paying good attention to its smartphones. Last month, OnePlus 3 and 3T received Android 8.0 Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.0 and now, OnePlus 5 just got the Android 8.0 Oreo-based OxygenOS Open Beta 2. This is coming a few weeks after the first Open Beta build touched down. As expected, this update comes with a series of bug fixes and system improvements. You will have to flash the new build onto the OnePlus 5 to install the Open Beta 2 OxygenOS. It is highly recommended that all data be backed up before attempting this process because it will definitely clear up your phone memory.

The official changelog for the Android Oreo-based OxygenOS Open Beta 2 lists improvements in widget and shortcut issues as well as camera UI improvements. In addition, the f4v format for videos has been added to the pre-installed Files Manager app which improves speed while deleting big files. The reloaded Reading mode, vibration, and Bluetooth audio also got some improvements while a reboot issue while using Picture-in-Picture mode was fixed. The detailed schedule for the release of the public Android 8.0 Oreo to OnePlus 5 has not been made public, however, the release of a second Open Beta less than a month after its initial version strongly suggests that this will be happening soon.
