WTF? OxygenOS Open Beta 1 (Android O) - Where is it for 5T?

    I am a bit pissed, feeling left behind as 5T customer.

    5 just got Oreo Beta today, and we 5T owners are left behind with nothing.

    Let's face it, only reason 5T was not released with Oreo is, devices released with Orea MUST support Project Treble. And OnePlus wanted to save some bucks here.

    So please at least dont make us 2nd class customers by releasing Betas for the 5 earlier than for 5T. Hardware is 98% the same to start with.

    They did the same with the OP3T. They will launch beta for the 5T once they have a stable version for the 5/5T.

    3 and 3T got the betas at the same time - all the time. At least since I own a 3T - which was pretty early.

    Well it isn't 100% the same device, so I would guess they focused on developing for the 5 first so the news don't say bad things about them abandoning a 5 months old device.

    Nope, the 3 got Open Beta first for Nougat, once they had the stable version they gave the 3T Open Beta too. Why else do you think the OB version of the 3 is higher than the OB version of the 3T?

    Because the 3 was released way earlier, and betas were a thing from the early start.
    Cannot say for Nougat, but everything else and after came in sync for both devices.

    3 and 3T at least had a different SoC (Snapdragon 820 vs 821), 5 and 5T have all the same hardware, except Display, possibly Fingerprint and Camera. So WTF not give us the same treatment?

    Does not matter since next yr you will be getting android P first before OP6/6T users. So stop whining. It's a loop.....

    I'm not fussed when Oreo is available. the op5 and op5t work flawless with 7.1.1, I'm happy to wait for a stable Oreo version.

    Newbie - I just bought my first Oneplus phone model 5T - are there issues with Android 7 security or similar - or why is it important to get Android 8 now?

    People that are surprised about this have a lot to learn.,
    It's quite obvious that it would arrive to the OP5 before the OPT5. However, since the devices are almost the same most of the files will be easy to port and make us get it faster after the OP5 have it.

    Relax, or are you missing a feature you need from the beta?

    Dude, don't even start to complain about getting left behind. Do you have any idea how many features are on the OP5T that didn't come to the OP5 for.absutely no reason at all? You have absolutely no idea what it's like to be left behind when you buy a phone and 2 months later find that it isn't getting new feature because of idiots at OnePlus who don't think it's necessary.
