Owners of the OnePlus 5T can now update their phones to Android Oreo. OnePlus’ latest flagship had received the beta update a few weeks ago but has now made the shift to a stable version.
The update, as usual, not only brings Oreo but a number of other upgrades and fixes too. Below is the complete 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
The update will gradually roll-out to devices but there is a way to get it immediately. Install a VPN, set your location to Canada or Germany, go to System Update under Settings Menu and check for the update.
The OnePlus 5T has received lots of positive reviews since its launch. It has a 6.01” FHD+ Optic AMOLED display, 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage. It is also powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor like the OnePlus 5.
Thanks to the larger display and thinner bezels, the OnePlus 5T has its fingerprint scanner sitting on the back. There are dual cameras (16MP +20MP) on the rear and a 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera up in front. It also keeps the 3.5mm audio jack, has a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, and packs a 3300mAh battery.
