One of the best things about owning a OnePlus smartphone is the fact that you will always get the latest updates. The tech giant doesn’t like to rely only on Google for software and it creates its own apps and services which are rolled out OTA (over the air). The latest update for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T is including the two smartphones in Project Treble.
For those who don’t know what Project Treble is, this is a special software that breaks down Android updates in small pieces so that they can update independently. The reason why Google developed this software is because it will help improve the speed at which Android updates are being rolled out.
OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T OxygenOS Open Beta
OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T owners should be happy to know that the latest version of OxygenOS Open Beta is going to introduce Project Treble to them. This is a great feature and it will make download new updates a seamless experience. Not just that, but the latest version of OxygenOS Open Beta also introduces a brand new user interface.
We should also mention that OnePlus 6 already supports Project Treble and that it’s been proven the new software makes operating system updates faster than ever!
Scared to Implement Project Treble
The interesting thing about Project Treble is that many smartphone manufacturers didn’t want to install it on their devices because they were afraid of it, OnePlus included.
OnePlus believed that the complicated system of Project Treble might cause serious trouble to OnePlus smartphones, especially since tests showed OnePlus smartphones would brick after the company installed Project Treble.
Fortunately, OnePlus was able to tweak out the software issues which made OxygenOS incompatible with Project Treble and everything works fine now.
