Recently OnePlus’s Co-founder Carl Pei announced on his twitter handle that the OnePlus 5 would be soon getting Android Oreo Beta which hints that OnePlus is all set to roll out public beta to the OnePlus 5 users. This should make it up to those OnePlus 5 users who were not happy with the launch of the OnePlus 5T having upgraded specs in the same price.
