OnePlus has finally started rolling out the stable Android Oreo update for the company’s current flagship smartphone, the Oneplus 5t. The update was being beta tested for some time. In its official forum, the company notes that OxygenOS 5.0.2 is the first official Android O update, and is currently only rolling out to a small percentage of users right now. A broader roll out will begin in a few days.
Besides the update to the latest version of Android, the update also brings a new design for Quick Settings, CPU security patch CVE-2017-13218, as well as general bug fixes. It also updates certain applications such as the Launcher, Gallery, Weather, and File Manager.
“For those who were on previous versions for OnePlus 5T, we appreciate your active feedback and attempts to reach out to us. With your help, we have been able to better optimize and improve several key areas,” said OnePlus’ Adam Krisko.
OnePlus recently started rolling out the OxygenOS Open Beta 3 for the oneplus 5t that brought a number of changes to the system, this included a number of tweaks to the UI as well as a new SMS categorisation function exclusively for Indian users. There was also a video posted on Reddit that suggested that the company may bring iPhone X-like gestures to the OnePlus 5T. However, that doesn’t seem to be a part of the stable update.
Oneplus has already updated the OnePlus 3 and 3T to Oreo back in November last year, but the OnePlus 5 is still missing the stable Oreo update. However, with the rollout of OxygenOS 5.0.2 to the oneplus 5t, OnePlus’ previous flagship should be updated soon.
