OnePlus patches Open Beta 3 for OnePlus 5T, removes controversial clipboard function

Latest Open Betas for OnePlus 5/5T remove Clipboard, add navigation gestures, and more

OnePlus 5T Gets iPhone X-like Gesture Controls with the Latest Oxygen OS Beta

Released after Google's initial 8.0 delivery for Nexuses and Pixels with Nougat out the box, the 5T barely joined the public Oreo beta program earlier this month. The updates also throw in an SMS categorization function for those in India and CPU security patch CVE-2017-13218.

OxygenOS Open Beta 5 and Open Beta 3 come with new gestures, bug fixes and improvements for the devices.

When the OnePlus 5T was released previous year, it still came with Android Nougat installed on it which was a bit of a bummer as we're sure some were expecting Android Oreo.

When it comes to the aforementioned application updates, you'll notice that the launcher has been updated to version 2.2, the gallery has been updated to version 2.0, the weather application has been updated to version 1.9 and the file manager has been updated to version 1.7.6.

Although the new navigation gestures might be something praiseworthy and appreciative for OnePlus 5T users, it remains to be seen.

The company first did two Beta versions of the OxygenOS 5 based on Android 8 and caught a few bugs before it polished things up and released an official OS version.

Rejoice, OnePlus 5 and 5T owners, for a new Open Beta is available for your phones and includes an interesting mix of additions, subtractions, and fixes.

The OnePlus 5T, for all practical purposes, is little more than a OnePlus 5 with fewer bezels and a few new features here and there. The camera app also gets enhanced EIS for better video recording.

To begin with, OnePlus has added a new pick-up gesture for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus also removes the controversial Clipboard factuality in OxygenOS Beta 3, it is said to send the user's usage stats to a server in China. If you have already installed the update on your phone.
