OnePlus 5 and 5T Are Now Receiving Android 8.1 Oreo Update

The OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T just received the OxygenOS 5.1.0 update, which brings Android 8.1 Oreo to these two handsets, as well as navigation gestures similar to those available on the Apple iPhone X. With the launch of the OnePlus 6 scheduled for sometime later this month, the OnePlus 5T has been slowly going out of stock. For the OnePlus 5T, the company has added the support for full-screen gestures, but the OnePlus 5 misses out on the same. "The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we'll begin a broader rollout in a few days", says Manu J, Staff Member, Beta Program and Developer Relations, OnePlus in the forum post.

The official build, OxygenOS 5.1.0, on top of upgrading Android, adds a couple of interesting new features and improves security, as it comes with the latest Android security patch (for April 2018).

Amid the fanfare surrounding the launch of OnePlus' upcoming flagship smartphone of 2018, one might tend to forget the fact that it has been less than five months since the launch of the OnePlus 5T in India. The stable firmware update includes some of the features first introduced with the Open Beta for both phones. In order to go back, you had to swipe up from the bottom corner of the screen. For multi-tasking, you swipe up from the bottom centre of the screen and hold your finger in the centre of the display until multitasking cards show up.

Update: The article has been updated to reflect that only the OnePlus 5T has received gestures for navigation.
