Global OxygenOS 5.0 OTA update for the OnePlus 5, based on Android 8.0, has been canceled

Late last month (which in turn makes it late last year), the OnePlus 5 received an OTA update that included OxygenOS 5.0. The latter is based on Android 8.0, thus giving owners of the device new capabilities like Picture-in-Picture, which allows you to watch videos while running an app in the background. Autofill completes blank fields based on how you filled out similar forms in the past. And Android Instant Apps lets you run an app from your browser without stopping to install it on your phone.

Other features that come with the update include a revised camera UI for the OnePlus 5, a new beauty effect for Portrait Mode and enhanced optimizations for Wi-Fi and Battery Saver. On December 22nd, a small number of users started to receive the update, while a wider global distribution of it started a few days later. But today, a post on the OnePlus forum brought the global update to a screeching halt.

Because of a bug found on Oxygen 5.0, OnePlus has canceled the global rollout of the update. Instead, OnePlus says that it is prepping for Oxygen 5.0.1 and will soon send out a partial release of that update to the OnePlus 5. Hopefully, OnePlus will have better luck with this version of the latest OxygenOS build.
