Final OnePlus 5/5T open betas now rolling out w/ Zen Mode, more

The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are now receiving the final OxygenOS open betas in the form of Open Beta 35 and 33 for the two phones, respectively.

In a post on the official OnePlus forums, there was confirmation that both betas will be the final beta releases for the OnePlus 5/5T, meaning that we are likely to see a stable OxygenOS update in the near future.

OnePlus has already confirmed that it’s highly likely we’ll see Android Q on the OnePlus 5 family, which means that we’d expect to see a future Q-based open beta program for the 5 and 5T in the future. Once Android Q makes it to the OnePlus 5 series, we’ll have seen an impressive four full Android updates on the OnePlus 5 and 5T: Nougat-to-Q. Now that is great for those of you out there holding on to either phone.

As for these updates, there are a ton of tweaks to talk about. Firstly, we see improved page scrolling, Weather cards enhancements, optimized GPS usage for Weather. Within the Phone app there are some animation effect improvements, Quick Responses also get an edit function, and Zen Mode joins the mix. As far as final hurrahs go, this is a good one.
