OnePlus has announced that Android P beta will be coming to it next flagship – OnePlus 6. OnePlus will launch OnePlus 6 globally on May 16 followed by Indian launch on May 17. Google has announced Android P beta at its Google I/O event 2018 yesterday in San Francisco.
OnePlus, recognized for delivering some of the fastest software updates in the industry and having one of the most developer-friendly phones, is part of the earliest group of manufacturers working closely with Google to release their latest updates and features. OnePlus has created specialized team called Team FSE (Fast, Stable, Efficient) to focus solely on maximizing the power of its flagship devices. The team ensures that OnePlus devices offer the fastest, and smoothest user experience available.
OnePlus gained support from the developer community in 2014 with its first smartphone, the OnePlus One, which allowed users to fully customize the user interface using the Cyanogen OS. In early 2015, OnePlus launched Oxygen OS, its refined version of stock Android that retains a pure but fine-tuned experience. Oxygen OS evolves alongside the relationship between people and smartphones and discussions with members of the global OnePlus community.
Oxygen OS has allowed OnePlus to provide some of the industry’s fastest software updates. In 2017, the OnePlus 5 and 5T were some of the first devices to receive Android Oreo updates and the company prioritizes pushing out Android security patch updates within two months of release.
“By empowering and trusting in our community we learned users want a fast, smooth, and clean user experience – something we call ‘burden-less’,” said Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus. “Beyond building the best possible Android phone, we work to provide more value to users by ensuring the smartphone experience is not dominated by bloatware and intrusive notifications. The creation of Team FSE (fast, smooth, efficient) helps create a recurring theme across all user reviews of OnePlus phone experiences as fast and smooth.”
Today, more than 135,000 OnePlus community members have signed up to review the OnePlus 6 via The Lab program. Early OnePlus 6 adopters can try Android P Beta from OnePlus website on launch day, May 16th.
