The year before, OnePlus moved to the all-metal case, abandoning its branded white Sandstone OnePlus 5T material, although the first two generations of devices it was almost the main distinguishing feature of the brand’s smartphones.
And now the “classic comes back!” OnePlus has released several teasers, alluding to the fact that on January 5 the company will present a white OnePlus 5T with a back surface from Sandstone. The same material has already been used in a special edition of the flagship devoted to the “Star Wars”, but now the white “sandstone” will be available more widely. We are waiting for January 5!

Android 8.0 Oreo
OnePlus this week rolled out an update to Android 8.0 Oreo for OnePlus 5, thus surpassing the previously designated dates. The same happened with the other flagship OnePlus 5T. Recall, the Chinese company promised to start beta testing early next year, but today the German account in social networks has pleased news about the launch of beta testing. The company filed this news as a Christmas present, but nothing is reported about access conditions (obviously, these data will be available the other day). By the way, today also released an update for commercial firmware OnePlus 5T, which fixes known bugs and errors. The final release of Android Oreo with Oxygen OS 5.0 for OnePlus 5T will take place in the first quarter of 2018.
