The OnePlus 5 is getting Open Beta 13, whereas the OnePlus 5T is getting the Open Beta 11. For those unaware, Project Treble was announced with Android 8.0 Oreo a year ago by Google to tackle the issue of slow software updates. It even confirmed that the OnePlus 5 and 5T would not receive this feature. The feature is being tested in the latest open beta update and a stable version will arrive soon. OnePlus originally said it was skipping on Treble because it requires a storage partition, and since all OnePlus devices lack the necessary partition, there was a chance they'd brick. The key point of the last update concerns the support for Project Treble, which was not at all obvious.
A year ago a OnePlus rep said the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T wouldn't be getting Project Treble support, meaning more work for OnePlus to get Android P ready for these phones, and a longer delay as a result. Interestingly, OnePlus has refused to provide Project Treble support on its older smartphones.

OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5t are the first OnePlus devices to embrace Project Treble. The Weather app has also been improved, offering a new design that integrates the forecast into a single area. The version also supports accent colour customisation (using a colour wheel).
However the OxygenOS beta for both 2017 devices now features support for Project Treble and was announced in a forum post on OnePlus' website. The company has also introduced some changes to the default Launcher app, which now comes with improved search tags in the app drawer, "New Installs' category tag in the app drawer and improved app list for hidden space and toolbox".
However because this is still beta software there will undoubtedly be bugs, meaning if you want to download it you should do so on a device that is not your primary phone.
