OnePlus 5 And OnePlus 5T Start Receiving Android Pie Stable Update
The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T were launched in 2017. Since their release, the OnePlus 6 and OnePLus 6T have also been launched. But this doesn’t mean that the company leaves them behind when it comes to software updates. OnePlus has started rolling out the Oxygen OS update to bring Android 9 Pie to these devices. Android 9 Pie is the latest version of the popular OS and was already present on the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T.
The update was due, as OnePlus had released an Open Beta program for the same, a couple of weeks back. This would have ensured that any last minute bugs on the new update were brought to notice and immediately rectified. Now, the company is rolling out the Oxygen OS 9.0.0 update. The changes brought with the update are as follows.
The first major change is the Android 9 Pie Operating System. Along with this, users get a brand new UI, for Android Pie. OnePlus 5T users also get new navigation gestures, however, this won’t reach OnePlus 5 users. Users also get an updated Android Security patch for December 2018.
OnePlus has also added a new Gaming mode, the Gaming Mode 3.0 This involves additional text notification mode and added notification for third-party calls. THe OnePLus 5 and OnePlus 5T also get a new Do Not Disturb mode with advanced and adjustable settings. The camera on both the devices now get Google lens support as well.
While the company has released the software, users must keep in mind that the distribution will be slow and will take time to reach every device. As of now, the update will only come to a few devices and if everything goes well, the company will start the mass rollout of the update. OnePlus has also requested users to report any bugs or errors in the update in their feedback forum. The update is surely a great Christmas gift for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T users!
