Originally Published On News |

OnePlus 5, the flagship smartphone from OnePlus might get Android 8.0 Oreo update before the end of this year. The company has started teasing the update on its official Twitter handle, confirming the eventual arrival of the software update.

OnePlus has been among the first OEMs to make the latest Android updates available to its flagship smartphones. Last year, the company trumped some of the major smartphone brands to roll out Android Nougat for the oneplus 3. The company is now teasing the arrival of the Oreo update with the caption "now get ready for" and the reference to 'Elf on the Shelf' means the update could arrive in December.


OnePlus had earlier confirmed that the oneplus 5, oneplus 3t and oneplus 3 will get Android 8.0 Oreo update before the end of 2017. The company has already started working on the update and is expected to make it available to OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users running beta software. The beta version of OxygenOS based on Oreo is expected to debut at the end of September and will roll out to all users once the community discovers bugs and the company fixes them.

OnePlus is still using last year's oneplus 3 and oneplus 3tWHERE TO BUY 25999 25999 as the test devices for beta software. After the launch of Oreo update, the company is expected to discontinue OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T from beta and switch to the oneplus 5. Meanwhile, HMD Global has also teased the Oreo update for its flagship Nokia 8 smartphone.
