Most of the smartphone's makers introduce new software-based features on their latest smartphones, which will not be trickle down to the last gen flagship smartphone. However, OnePlus has a different philosophy, where the company will introduce new features on the newest smartphones, and those features will be made available for the older devices as well.
With the launch of the OnePlus 6, the company has introduced the portrait selfie feature, which has caught a lot of attention. And now, the company is working on bringing the feature to the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T. With a future software update, the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T will receive portrait mode for the front-facing selfie camera, which is being achieved using software capabilities.
Open Ear Forum
The company recently held its first Open Ear Forum in India, where users are open to suggest features which they like to see on the OnePlus devices and potrait selfie mode is one of those features. The company is very open to fans and critics as well.
Additionally, the company will be looking to include following features on selected OnePlus smartphones.
- Improved FileDash support to offer compatibility with other OnePlus applications
- Improved OnePlus Switch for data backup on the device and on a desktop or a computer
- Correction of the "oil-painting effect" on the OnePlus 6
- Dark theme support for Shelf
- Improved these support with additional accent colors
Depending on the device, these features will be available for the OnePlus smartphones with the future software update. As of now, there is no exact time frame mentioned by the company regarding the rollout of the update.

Whereas the OnePlus 5T is the first (and the only one) smartphone from the brand with an 18:9 aspect ratio display.
