OnePlus easily is one of the companies with the best update tracking record nowadays. After having provided Android 10 updates for the OnePlus 7 and 6 series, the company is now moving its focus to the OnePlus 5 and 5T devices. One week ago, the company rolled out the first Android 10-based OyxgenOS 10 Open Beta for the duo of 2017 smartphones. The beta builds allow courageous users to test and provide feedback for developers.
The beta program usually take several rounds of Open Beta releases. However, it’s pretty understandable since the company is ensuring that all flaws are fixed before a wider rollout. Today OnePlus is rolling out the Open Beta 2 for the OnePlus 5 handsets. The new firmware basically brings several bug fixes for users running the previous beta. Moreover, it includes April 2020 security patch and improves general stability. Last but not least, the update promises to optimize the Multi-window mode.
Curiously, this update can’t be rolled out via OTA for users on Open Beta 1. Instead, users interested in the second build will need to flash it manually. Thankfully, the company states that users on Open Beta 1 or Android 9 Pie Stable release, won’t lose data by flashing this update. The same does not apply to users running Android 9 Pie-based Open Beta branch.
