Android Oreo arrives on the OnePlus 5T

OnePlus 5T owners, today is the day you’ve been waiting for. The Android 8.0 Oreo operating system is out of beta and rolling out to users.

As part of Oxygen OS 5.0.2, Google’s latest operating system is arriving as an over-the-air update for some OnePlus 5T owners.

Signature features like picture-in-picture, smarter notifications, redesigned media notifications, dots next to apps with unread alerts, and much more.

OnePlus is also adding its own new features with its own interface, while Google’s December update also arrives with this update.

Phandroid points out that the update is coming slowly while OnePlus checks for flaws, so most users should start seeing it next week.

Here’s the change log:

  • Upgraded Android version to Oreo(8.0)
    New design for Quick Settings
    General bug fixes and improvements
    Applied CPU security patch: CVE-2017-13218
  • Updated Launcher to v2.2
    Updated Gallery to v2.0
    Updated Weather to v1.9
    Updated File Manager to v1.7.6
  • We’ve adjusted the volume for headsets to better align with European voltage regulations. It may seem a bit lower volume to some.
  • We’ve added an APK called Mkey, this is a font resource that was provided officially for India for local font compatibility needs. This can be uninstalled by users if not needed or wanted, but we are required to provide it.

OnePlus has already rolled out the update for the OnePlus 5, while some 3 and 3T owners are also running Google’s latest OS.
