Android Oreo starts rolling out to the OnePlus 5 (again)

OnePlus has been working on updating its lineup of devices to Android 8.0 Oreo, and apparently, the company has been experiencing a myriad of issues. The company started rolling out the OxygenOS 5.0 update for owners of the OnePlus 5, but that update had to be pulled after a series of issues were found.

Fast forward a week or so, and now the fun is back on, as OnePlus has started rolling out the update again. However, instead of carrying the OxygenOS 5.0 software version, the update currently rolling out is OxygenOS 5.0.1.

As for everything that the new update brings, here’s the full changelog:

  • Updated to Android O (8.0)
  • Launcher
    • Optimizations for Shelf
    • Now you can upload your photo through Shot on OnePlus
  • Camera
    • New Camera UI design

According to folks on the OnePlus Forums who have already installed the update, it seems to be finally stable and there are not any major or glaring bugs. Although the update is rolling out via OTA for many users, I know there are some impatient folks out there.
