OnePlus 5 now ready to receive update Android 8.1 Oreo "Open Beta 6" version

Latest update rolling out to OnePlus 5 as Open better 6 upgrade phone to Android 8.1 Oreo. The new upgrade will is centered mainly on phone, Gaming mode, System and OnePlus Switch.

Upgraded system to Android 8.1 Oreo

Phone
Added New auto pick up gesture - answer incoming call by raising the phone
Added global roaming solution

Gaming mode
Added new optimizations in gaming mode for immersive gaming experience including
notifications blocking, power saving and pausing adaptive brightness

System
Added more clock styles for ambient display
Optimized full screen gesture support (this is only for 5T)
Updated Android security patch to 2018-02

OnePlus Switch
Supported data migration for application backup


The highlight, being the update to 8.1, is obvious and already stated. The new pick up gesture to answer phone calls is neat, I guess, as are the improvements to gaming mode (which I have not once used on my OP5/OP5T, so whatever). I am excited to see additional ambient display clock options is also good, considering that I am personally not a fan of the default. Finally, we can see that the OnePlus 5 is getting the February security patch.

Of note is that, despite this being pulled from the OnePlus 5 page, the changelog mentions optimized full-screen gesture support for the 5T, which we saw in the last Open Beta for that phone the horribly-formatted changelog on the forum post does not have the 5T gesture mention, however.

I also missed that the OP5 did not have OnePlus Switch, the app that is supposed to make data migration between phones easier. Anyway, if you want to hop on the latest and greatest for OnePlus' first 2017 flagship, then you can do so via the links below. Just flash the zip in the stock recovery and you're good to go; going back will require a full wipe, however.
