OnePlus 5T owners can now upgrade their smartphones to Android 8.0 Oreo.

The latest update to OxygenOS – the skew of Android created by OnePlus for its hardware – follows months of beta releases.

From this week, any OnePlus 5T owner can update their smartphone to OxygenOS 5.0.2, which includes a number of key features from Android Oreo.

Support for picture-in-picture, smarter notifications and redesigned media notifications are all included.

Dots besides app icons on the homescreen – to signify a notification that requires your attention – are also a part of the new update.

Google’s security patches, rolled-out to Pixel and Nexus branded devices back in December, also arrives with OxygenOS 5.0.2.

OnePlus has also taken the opportunity to throw-in a few tweaks and improvements to the OnePlus interface itself.

Included in the new update is a redesign of the Quick Settings panel, which is accessed by swiping-down from the top of the display.

Here’s the full change log –

Upgraded Android version to Oreo (8.0)

We’ve adjusted the volume for headsets to better align with European voltage regulations. It may seem a bit lower volume to some.

We’ve added an APK called Mkey, this is a font resource that was provided officially for India for local font compatibility needs.

This can be uninstalled by users if not needed or wanted, but we are required to provide it.

OnePlus has already rolled-out its Android Oreo update to OnePlus 5 owners, while some 3 and 3T owners are also running Google’s latest OS.
