OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T owners can find latest OxygenOS Open Beta August 2018 firmwares for their devices with the guide ahead. Over the past couple of months, the brand has started ramping up software updates in an effort to provide better support and reliable experiences to its users. OnePlus 5 / 5T, despite being older devices, are still receiving official software updates and the most recent builds they have received are August 2018 Open Beta. Something quite new within these new firmwares is a revised and updated Community app. As OnePlus is an enthusiast brand and most of its customer base works closely with the company to improve future products, this revamp is quite welcome. To test it out, update your OnePlus 5 / 5T by downloading Open Beta August 2018 builds for your device.
Superseding older versions, the latest August 2018 builds are technically classed as Open Beta 15 for OnePlus 5 and Open Beta 13 for OnePlus 5T. A important thing to note here is, these builds were launched at the very start of August so the developer team wasn’t able to integrate latest August 2018 security definitions from Google. Hopefully, once the testing is done, we should see the latest security patch pop up in stable release of OxygenOS. You can read our technical change-log for the build, attached ahead.
