A new Open Beta build for the OnePlus 5 and 5T has started rolling out. Feature wise, it is the latest Android 8.1 Oreo version. Obviously, you'll need to be in beta to use this functionality on the OnePlus 5T or manually flash the update, but it's good to see work in progress regardless.

Android security fixes for the month of February are also included in the update. Coolest one, the Phone app gets an update that includes a new auto pickup gesture, which can allow the user to pick up the incoming call by the raising phone (such type of gestures were introduced by Samsung, since Galaxy S5). However, it is noteworthy that the update, now is available only for the OnePlus 5T beta users only.

The public update will be pushed via OTA and you will have to charge the handsets up to 100% to avoid interruption.

OnePlus 5 users can jump in joy! (The ambient clock still offers just analog and digital styles, as before, for example.) The phone answer gesture is obviously an awesome addition. It adds new optimisations in gaming mode as well for a more immersive gaming experience, along with power-saving and pausing adaptive brightness when a user is in this mode. Further, for the OnePlus 5T, the update also brings optimized full-screen gesture support.

An additional benefit for users is to migrate application backup data for One Plus 5T users by downloading OnePlus Switch application. However, advanced users can get a taste of upcoming features and software through the open beta program, before these features are thoroughly tested and rolled out as stable OTAs.

The Open Beta program is notably not stable software, and hence is not recommended for users who aren't completely sure of what they are doing, as this could cause stability issues and problems with the devices. Digging deeper into the OxygenOS Open Beta 4 firmware files, an image has been found which is named as "screendecor_up_img_enchilada_1" as seen above.
