This ends a long string of OxygenOS betas and opens up time and resources to bring the same beta to the OnePlus 5 pair before the year ends.

Future iPhones could use Intel’s 5G modem instead of Qualcomm’s

The battle between component suppliers for the next iPhones has just entered its next phase, and Qualcomm might be left behind in the dust. Intel has just proudly announced that they have reached a key milestone in the development of its 5G modem that takes it close to catching up with Qualcomm.

With the launch of the OnePlus 5T, you might think that OnePlus could call it a day and declare 2017 over, right? Absolutely not. While the hardware story for 2017 is definitely finished, the software story is far from done. Especially considering the OnePlus 5T didn’t even launch with Android 8.0 Oreo. But even before the latest and greatest could get its cookie treats, last year’s OnePlus 3 and 3T are first in line. Fortunately, the Oreo beta train is still running at full speed.

The OnePlus 5T was announced earlier today, and just like another certain flagship device, it'll have users unlocking their phones with facial recognition.
