OnePlus 5 starts getting OxygenOS 5.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo
After two Android Oreo beta builds, OnePlus has finally released the final version of the update for OnePlus 5 owners. Although we thought there won't be any major update releases from any major handset maker, it looks like Chinese companies continue to work throughout the holiday seasons (since they don't celebrate Christmas).
So, if you're running a OnePlus 5 as your daily driver, you'll be pleased to know OxygenOS 5.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo is now being pushed out to units all over the world.
According to OnePlus, the update contains some Launcher optimizations for Shelf, as well as a new option that will allow users to upload their photos through Shot.
Also, there are some changes to the Camera app, such as a new UI design, optimizations for photo quality, and a newly added beauty effect for Portrait Mode. A new “Place” tab for viewing photos on a map has been added too, along with new history and alarm calendar features for the Calculator and Clock, respectively.
Aside from the changes mentioned above, OnePlus implemented a lot more for the System part. You can find below the full list as announced by the Chinese handset maker:
- Added Parallel Apps feature
- New design for Quick Settings
- New design for Lift up display
- Added “Adaptive model" screen calibration
- Optimizations for Wi-Fi
- Optimizations for Battery Saver
- Updated Android security patch to December
As OnePlus points out, the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the OnePlus 5 is being rolled out to a small percentage of players first, but a broader roll-out will begin in the next few days.
