911 dialing issue fixed in latest OnePlus 5 update
OnePlus has just released an update that fixes the 911 dialing bug
experienced by some OnePlus 5
owners. As you may know, the issue became viral on Reddit over the past couple of days, after a user reported, and subsequently uploaded a video of his OnePlus 5 unit rebooting whenever he tried to call the emergency number.
Although it was later found out that other Android phones also experienced the same problem, the Chinese manufacturer was certainly quick to react. The company's tech support team contacted the user and now an OTA update is rolling out to all owners of the 2017 flagship. Here's the latest statement from the company:
We have begun rolling out the software update. Timing may vary by region. We encourage OnePlus 5 users to download the update. If users haven't received a notification, check for the update by going to Settings > System Updates.
At the time of writing, the patch still hasn't hit the units in our office, but it should be available in the coming hours.
