OnePlus 7T series gets dark mode toggle, more via Oxygen OS Beta 5

[ad_1]

Update, June 12, 2020 (02:30 PM ET): Oxygen OS Beta 5 is launching for the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro, and it’s bringing lots of new stuff with it. It’s adding a couple of new features and plenty of smaller fixes that owners of the phone should appreciate.
The update was originally rumored to have the return of one-handed mode, but now that it has been officially announced by OnePlus, it appears as though that feature is left off.
Oxygen OS Beta 5 also adds tweaks to the default dialer’s interface, which will now show frequently called contacts. There’s also support for the Bluetooth hearing aid app connection. The last big change is a new dark mode toggle, which is a feature many users have been on the lookout for.
Here’s the complete changelog:
