If you don't want to risk beta software on your phone - very wise of you - then the same upgrades should be rolling out in the stable version of OxygenOS in the not-too-distant future. Google had announced Project Treble ahead of releasing Android 8.0 Oreo previous year to enable a vendor interface to speed up the software update process for manufacturers. This will soon be arriving to regular OnePlus 5, 5T users soon.

The OxygenOS beta for both smartphones that features support for Project Treble can be downloaded on OnePlus' website.

Note: as this build supports project treble If you are not running open beta 12 for OnePlus 5 and open beta 10 OnePlus 5T make sure you flash this builds before updating, if not you should clear all data and cache from recovery before flashing the latest build. Now, though, support has been added to the latest version of the Oxygen OS beta designed for last year's phones. We're already now in H2 which means the possible arrival of the OnePlus 6T or some other color variants apart from the OnePlus 6 Red and the OnePlus 6 Avengers Infinity War Edition may be unveiled. Now the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T flagship devices of the company is getting a new OxygenOS open beta update to bring Project Treble support.
