Ahead of the final release of the Android Q, the OnePlus 7 series has received a new beta update. The update, which is dubbed as Android Q Developer Preview 5, is based on Google’s Android 10 Beta 6. The company has clearly mentioned in a forum post that the build of Android Q is suited only for developers and early adopter. The company says it does not recommend “flashing this ROM if you have little or no experience in software development or flashing custom ROMs.”

As per the changelog, the newly released update for the OnePlus phones includes overall improvements to stability and bug fixes. Notably, the update adds support for the company’s custom gesture system, which will sit alongside the Android 10’s gesture system and the navigation buttons. There are also a total of three known issues listed by OnePlus in its blog post. These include application compatibility problems, compatibility issues with Google Pay
and low probability of system lag and stability issues.

Those planning to flash must bear in mind that there is a risk of bricking your phone if the instructions are not followed carefully. OnePlus also recommends that the battery level of the OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7 Pro should be above 30 percent and a minimum of 3GB of storage is available before flashing the smartphone. Moreover, one should not forget to backup data before upgrade.
