Official Android 8.0 Oreo update is rolling out to the OnePlus 5T


After months of betas, the guys at OnePlus have been hard at work pushing out official Android Oreo updates to their flagship devices. Oddly enough, their most recent handset — the OnePlus 5T — has been left out, sitting back while older devices like the OnePlus 5 and even OnePlus 3/3T received Android 8.0 not too long ago.

Early last month the update was headed out as a beta, but was quickly pulled because of bugs. Wednesday, the OnePlus 5T officially began receiving OxygenOS 5.0.2, otherwise known as Android 8.0 Oreo. The update brings a handful of new core features, UI changes, and extra goodies like a patch for that nasty Spectre exploit, and new versions of systems apps. Here’s the changelog:

OnePlus 5T OxygenOS 5.0.2 changelog:


  • 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.

The update started rolling out earlier this week but only in stages. It’s possible you wont actually see the update until sometime next week while OnePlus ensures everything is in tip-top shape and there are no unforeseen issues. For now, stay on the lookout and keep checking your settings so you’ll know exactly when it’s available. You guys excited?
