OxygenOS 5.0.1 rolling out]

For those that would rather wait for an official release, it's likely OnePlus will release Android Oreo, which the company has been testing with these open betas, to the OP5 sometime later this month. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has sent updates to four of its devices including the OnePlus 5T, 5, 3 and 3T. Once users migrate to the beta patch, they will keep receiving beta OTA updates.

The company has released the new feature via Open beta program. OnePlus doesn't pretend otherwise, though, and it's good to see a tentpole feature coming to a not-so-current device. If Oxygen OS for the OnePlus 5 has the same odd mixture of Oreo and Nougat on it, we hope it doesn't result in the same sort of problems.

On a positive note, OnePlus has said that it is working on OxygenOS 5.0.1 and will roll out a partial release of that update to the OnePlus 5.

Yesterday, we had reported that the device has started receiving the update after OnePlus had posted about it on its forum. These included optimisations to the OnePlus launcher, a revamped UI for the camera app and improvements to image quality. Google Play Protect is now warning users running OxygenOS 5.0.1 that an app called "FactoryMode" might be harmful. The update also brings smart text selection with a whole new New Quick Settings design to manage your system's performance. Did you like how the company is pushing regular update for the OnePlus 5T smartphone? For example, notifications wouldn't appear or disappear for certain apps in addition to being unable to set default alarm clock tune and more.
