One of the best things about owning a OnePlus device is developer support. All the OnePlus devices are very famous among the developers and these phones get all the major ROMs. OnePlus 5T (dumpling) which is a 2 years old device now has received an unofficial Lineage OS 17 which is based on Android 10 mobile OS. This is not the only OnePlus device to get the update but all most all the major OnePlus devices have received the ROM including OnePlus 5.
We are not sure whether OnePlus 5T will get the official Android 10 update or not. OnePlus has recently released the Android 10 update to OnePlus 6 and 6T so it may take some weeks or months for OnePlus 5 and 5T to get the official Android 10 update. But if you are impatient and want to experience the Android 10 on your device, you can do that now by Installing Lineage OS 17 On OnePlus 5T. We are thankful to codeworkx, Senior Recognized Developer for developing and sharing the ROM file.
