Android 8 Oreo Update For OnePlus 5T Resumes After It Was Suspended
On the 30th of January OnePlus announced that an Android 8 Oreo update for the OnePlus 5T had begun. The update was due to arrive along with OxygenOS 5.0.2. However, due to some bugs, the rollout was suspended. Now, after swiftly working on the issues, the company has started rolling out OxygenOS 5.0.3 which also brings Android 8.09 Oreo update with it.
This is is not the first time that an OEM had to suspend Android 8 Oreo rollout for its devices. Most notably, it has been smartphones with stock Android OS which have had a lot of issues. Xiaomi Mi A1 runs stock Android OS and after the initial Oreo update, the company had to suspend it due to a lot of complaints.
If you had already updated to OxygenOS 5.0.2, the new update weighs in at about 39MB. For users moving from Android 7 Nougat, the update will be much bigger in size.
