Latest OxygenOS Update Brings Oreo to OnePlus 5T

A new OxygenOS update is now rolling out to the OnePlus 5T, and it’s bringing Android 8.0 Oreo with it.

“We are starting to push the incremental roll-out of OxygenOS 5.0.2, our first official Android O OTA update for the OnePlus 5T,” OnePlus’ Adam Krisko writes in the release announcement. “As always, this OTA will be incremental. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we’ll begin a broader rollout in a few days.”

As you may recall, I reviewed the OnePlus 5T in early December and described it as “that rarest of personal technology products, something I can recommend wholeheartedly and without caveat.” I found the device to be nearly perfect, but some complained that it shipped originally with an Android 7.1-based OS despite the availability of Android 8.0 Oreo.

But as I noted at the time, OnePlus promised it would move quickly to bring Oreo to the 5T. And it did so: I previously installed all three of the Oreo-based OxygenOS updates, and wrote about two of them, in December and then again in mid-January. The final release appears to be quite similar (if not identical) to the third beta release.

According to OnePlus, this update adds the following changes.

Upgraded Android version to Oreo(8.0)
– New design for Quick Settings
– General bug fixes and improvements
– Applied CPU security patch: CVE-2017-13218

Upgraded applications
– Updated Launcher to v2.2
– Updated Gallery to v2.0
– Updated Weather to v1.9
– Updated File Manager to v1.7.6

I’m not seeing the final release yet, but I will report back if there is anything new or interesting when it arrives.

    Do you have any concerns over One Plus' recent recurring apparent lax management of user data including credit card info, etc.?
