Share

It look like the Chinese smartphone company is working hard to come up with improvements not only for their OnePlus 6, about to be released very soon, but also for phones that are already out on the market, namely the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus has a new update for its current flagship phones, the OnePlus 5 and 5T, which brings the latest Android Oreo 8.1 software to both phones.

Having said that, the biggest change for the OnePlus 5T users with this update lies in navigation gestures, as they're finally available in a stable build. Navigation gestures have been available in OxygenOS Open Beta builds for the OnePlus 5T for a while now, and you can now use them in a stable build as well. Like in the case of all other updates, the OnePlus has pushed the new update in a phased manner and hence it will take few days for the new software bits to appear on your handset. The update is being rolled out as an over-the-air (OTA) update, though this is an incremental roll-out. Now a couple of months later, OnePlus is rolling out the Android 8.1 Oreo update for both these smartphones.

OnePlus 5 and 5T will now have the latest features like the phone call picking gesture, optimization in the gaming mode along with it the support for migrating applications data. This update will also boost the network of gaming apps.
