OnePlus Switch app updated with local backups

There's one thing tinkerers everywhere can depend on: no matter how many times you do things right, every once in a while something goes wrong. When it comes to Android phones, that means it's good to keep backups if you plan on tweaking things at a root or ROM level. OnePlus seems to understand that, as the company has just added a local backups feature to its OnePlus Switch app.

[Update: Downloads are live] OnePlus begins rolling out official Oreo OTA for OnePlus 5T

OnePlus made the rather odd decision to launch its new phone in late 2017 with Android Nougat, which was a year old at the time. It said an Oreo update would arrive soon, and depending on your definition of "soon," OP has come through. Android 8.0 Oreo is rolling out now.

[Hands-on] OnePlus brings the limited edition Lava Red 5T to the U.S. and Europe just in time for Valentine's Day

The OnePlus 5T has been a big deal for the Chinese company since the launch in November. Initially available in a plain old black, the 5T received a special Star Wars edition in December that was exclusive to India. That shortly arrived for the U.S. and Europe about a month later, minus the Star Wars goodness (that red Alert Slider, though). Now, OnePlus is ready to launch another previously-seen color for its Western audience. This is the Lava Red 5T... and it's a looker.

[Update: Downloads posted] OxygenOS 5.0.2 for OnePlus 5 brings face unlock, better EIS for video, CPU security patch, and more

Face unlock has been in Android for years, though it recently became a hot topic again when OnePlus put it in the OnePlus 5T. The 5T's implementation is stupid quick - so quick, in fact, that you often don't even see the lockscreen before it unlocks. Now, in OxygenOS 5.0.2, the feature has made its way to the OnePlus 5 as promised. There are some other fixes/additions included as well.

Honor providing View10 devices to prominent custom ROM and kernel developers

Now that Huawei's plans of selling phones on US carriers have fallen apart, the company appears to be trying something different - appealing to hardcore Android enthusiasts looking for inexpensive phones. OnePlus is easily the leader in that niche, after Google stopped selling its budget-friendly Nexus phones. The Honor View10 (Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei) is already targeting OnePlus, and now the company is helping community developers create ROMs, recoveries, and kernels.

New Open Betas add iPhone X-like gesture navigation for the OnePlus 5T, remove Clipboard, and fix bugs

OnePlus 5 and 5T owners might have woken up to a new Open Beta for their phones this morning, which is the second this month. As you might have read in the title, this update is smaller in nature, but it removes the controversial Clipboard app and addresses a few other things.

No, OnePlus is still not sending your clipboard data to China

OnePlus can't catch a break lately. While it's made some legitimate mistakes (eg. the credit card hack), there have also been some incidents where hysteria took precedence over common sense. That was the case with the clipboard story a few weeks back, and now there's another clipboard-related accusation making the rounds. A Twitter post claims OnePlus is identifying and uploading clipboard data like bank account numbers to a Chinese server, but the company says this is incorrect. The file in question specifically stops the OS from monitoring certain types of data, and it's not even active in OxygenOS.

[Update: Now available] Lava Red OnePlus 5T to go on sale on January 20th

OnePlus targeted by credit card hack that went undiscovered for two months; 40,000 potentially affected

OnePlus has sent a letter to customers this morning, and confirmed in a post on the company's forums, that it was the target of a credit card hack. The attack was accomplished via a malicious script injected into the OnePlus.net payment page code, and allowed the attackers to see customer's credit card numbers, expiration dates, and security codes - enough information to easily allow those cards to be used for fraudulent purchases. Days ago, some users had begun reporting fraudulent card activity on cards they'd used on the site.

OnePlus says the code was injected into its servers sometime in mid-November - just as the OnePlus 5T was about to launch.

The Sandstone White OnePlus 5T is gone from OP's US site after selling out in 2 hours

If you were hoping the Sandstone White OnePlus 5T might come back in stock after it sold out in less than two hours, then I've got some bad news for you. As a OnePlus spokesperson confirmed to us, the Sandstone White version is "completely sold out in North America," and has been removed from OnePlus's website entirely. In fact, it looks like the phone is sold out everywhere except for OnePlus's home country of China, which is probably a sign that the limited edition of the phone isn't coming back.
