OnePlus 5 Open Beta 6 brings Android 8.1, February security patch, and more

OnePlus 5 owners received a nice surprise today. Open Beta 6 has a fairly important change in tow; it brings the phone up to Android 8.1. Other changes are along for the ride, too, but the highlight is the base OS version bump.

As usual, I have the changelog:

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.
