The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will support Project Treble after all

OxygenOS Open Betas for the OnePlus 5 and 5T now support Project Treble

OnePlus is now seeding new Open Beta software for the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T. The compatibility with Project Treble is also what ensured that more phones were part of the Android P beta when it was announced at Google I/O this year in May. OnePlus had refused to provide Project Treble support on its old smartphones, and this suggested that the company would have done the same with OnePlus 5 and 5T. The user interface of OnePlus' take on Android gets a few extra improvements and tweaks too.

In addition to Project Treble support OnePlus has included a "brand new user interface" in the update, new accent colors, tags in the app drawer, new UI in the weather app, and more. Now, Google has separated the software and hardware part of the update, making things more streamline and much faster. Users can to go Settings Display Customization for the same. The Weather app has also been improved, offering a new design that integrates the forecast into a single area. The HDR works a lot better than before, and the oil-painting effect is pretty much gone.

As a technical consideration, it's also interesting that OnePlus was able to do it without repartitioning storage for the device. OnePlus also promised that it is working on an improved panorama experience and it is planning to launch the fix by the end of the year.

This doesn't guarantee that the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will get ultra-fast updates in the future, but it's a very good sign. And the new VI will be validated by a Vendor Test Suite (VTS), which is analogous to the Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) that Google has been using for API testing of apps. Additionally, the new versions bring some other features and optimisations including new accent colours and a refreshed user interface.

Aforesaid, OnePlus also made some changes to the default Launcher app, which now comes with improved search tags in the app drawer, "New Installs" category tag in the app drawer and improved app list for hidden space and toolbox.

However because this is still beta software there will undoubtedly be bugs, meaning if you want to download it you should do so on a device that is not your primary phone.
