OnePlus One, OnePlus 5, and OnePlus 5T get Android Pie ports
Android 9 Pie has only been out for 2 weeks now, yet we’ve seen an amazing amount of development on our forums already. We’ve seen stable, working ports for several devices, including phones from Xiaomi, Motorola, and OnePlus—all of them working fairly decently with few remaining bugs. As the days go by, this list only keeps growing. Today, three new devices are joining the list and getting unofficial Android Pie ports: the OnePlus One, the OnePlus 5, and the OnePlus 5T.
The OnePlus One build comes from Team POSP and is basically fully stable as no major bugs are listed. However, we recommend against installing it unless you know what you’re doing since it’s marked as a beta release and there could be some undiscovered bugs. The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T builds, which are based on pure, unmodified AOSP Android, do have a couple of missing features like NFC and VoLTE, and need decrypting your device before installing. Some missing Android 9 features include the new navigation gestures, for one, but if you don’t mind that and the aforementioned bugs, you can consider these releases as mostly stable, as there are no other major hiccups or shortcomings.

Every OnePlus phone from the OnePlus One to the OnePlus 6 has a publicly available Android 9 Pie build. Apart from these 3 new devices, the OnePlus 2, OnePlus X, the OnePlus 3, and the OnePlus 3T recently received ports of Android Pie. The OnePlus 6, OnePlus’ most recent flagship, has an official OxygenOS and HydrogenOS-based Android 9 Pie beta which will also be available on the OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 3, and OnePlus 3T as well in the future.
