OnePlus is finally rolling out the Oxygen OS 5.1.5 update to the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. While the official changelog for the new system update isn’t that exciting, quite a few people have noticed that OnePlus also snuck in Google’s Project Treble framework which will allow the phones to be updated to new versions of Android a lot quicker. The newer OnePlus 6 already included Project Treble support, but the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T didn’t have support for Project Treble when they were updated to Android Oreo.
Support for Project Treble was first added to OyxgenOS Open Beta for the two devices back in July, but it was unclear if OnePlus would be pushing it out to users before its Android Pie update would be released. Now that the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T have the Project Treble framework baked into their code, there’s hope that the official release of their Android Pie update isn’t too far off.
With the OnePlus 5’s official Android Oreo update landing the last week of December, how quickly do you think OnePlus will be able to roll out Android Pie to the OnePlus 6, 5 & 5T?
