According to the OnePlus changelog details, OxygenOS 5.0.2 for OnePlus 5T brings Android version to Oreo (8.0), new design for Quick Settings and general bug fixes and improvements. It also includes CPU security patch CVE-2017-13218, and updates Launcher app to v2.2, Gallery to v2.0, Weather to v1.9 and File Manager to v1.7.6.

Users can go to Settings>About Phone>System Updates and check if the OTA update is available on their smartphone. OnePlus 5T users should take a backup of their data before installing the update. It is also better to download and install this update over WiFi, rather than rely on cellular data.

OnePlus 5T’s OxygenOS beta OS 3 update added new navigation gestures similar to the iPhone-X where users can activate these from the settings and tapping on the Nav bar. OnePlus 5T has an 18:9 full view display with no physical home button and a rear fingerprint scanner. OnePlus also removed the Clipboard function app from the latest open beta builds of OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. The app faced criticism as French security researcher Elliot Alderson pointed out the app was allowing the company to send user data back to Chinese servers without the consent of the user. OnePlus had denied the claims.

Face Unlock

According to the post, the new Android 8.1 Oreo update comes with features like auto pick-up gesture, optimised full-screen gesture support, bug fixes, added clock styles as well as general improvements. The auto pick-up gesture will allow the OnePlus 5T users to answer calls by simply raising their smartphone. The update also includes an update to the Android security patch for February 2018.

The gaming mode on the OnePlus 5T has also been further enhanced through the update with a power-saving and pause-adaptive brightness option while gaming. The new Android 8.0 Oreo update will also allow users to switch devices easily, thanks to a OnePlus Switch feature that will enable users to transfer application data.
