OnePlus 5 receives OxygenOS 5.0.2 update with Face Unlock support

Latest OxygenOS Update Brings Oreo to One Plus 5T

Latest OxygenOS Update Brings Oreo to One Plus 5T

As expected, the most contested change here is the removal of the Clipboard app, but according to OnePlus, this change was made following feedback collected from not just OnePlus 3 and 3T users, but also those using the newer OnePlus 5 and 5T. The new updates bring features like new gestures switcher, adds CPU security patch: CVE-2017-13218 and removes the clipboard from the device. Lastly, the camera app is receiving enhanced EIS for video recording.

Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has released the OxygenOS 5.0.2 update for OnePlus 5 smartphone. The company has promised to offer the Oreo flavor to OnePlus 5T owners by the first half of 2018 and with the latest beta build arriving, it somewhat means that we're very close to getting the stable rollout.

As always, the update is incremental and will only reach a very few users today.

When the OnePlus 5T was released past year, it still came with Android Nougat installed on it which was a bit of a bummer as we're sure some were expecting Android Oreo.

These updates include the December 2017 security patch. This will involve you installing an update. Those users who are on the stable build will not receive this open beta update. Apart from that, applications like Launcher, Gallery, Weather, and File Manager have been updated to their latest versions. As such, Oreo brings in features like picture-in-picture, Smart Text Selection, Notification Dots, Android Instant Apps, Google Play Protect improved booting time, extended battery life and a whole lot more.

The OxygenOS 5.0 update is 1587MB in size.

We are looking forward to testing this feature in the near future, but in the meantime, let us know if any of you had used it and what are your impressions.
