Updated on December 26, 2019: OnePlus has evolved itself to be a top OEM among every other smartphone manufacturer out in the market. Its USP is providing timely system updates for all of its devices. We already know of the closed beta testing that OnePlus carries out before pushing a new update. The phone maker last year joined hands with T-Mobile to enter the American market. So, jointly both the parties have initiated the Friendly User Testing program(FUT).
It is similar to closed beta testing where a limited number of users get to test new software. Then the OEM can push it to a wider range of users. Speaking of which we can soon expect the Android 10 beta updates for T-Mobile OnePlus 6T and 7 Pro to start under the FUT program.
However, a OnePlus community member has reported of a strange event. This user has received an email inviting him to take part in FUT for Sprint OnePlus 7 Pro 5G Android 10 update. As mentioned before the FUT is for the T-Mobile variants of OnePlus devices. So, definitely this is quite confusing.
Here you can have a look at the screengrab of the email.
This user also confirmed it from customer support that the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G Android 10 FUT is for T-Mobile variants. As this OnePlus community member raised this query, he was joined by other users as well. These members also confirm receiving similar e-mails.
So, this may be a green signal for starting of the Android 10 update for the 5G smartphones from OnePlus. The FUT is definitely a good initiative for rigorous testing of updates and reporting bugs. However, OnePlus should bring more clarity in its FUT programs. This way users won’t be confused while receiving official mailers inviting them to be test users for new system updates for a certain device.
