Android 8.1 Oreo Update Arrives To The OnePlus 5 & 5T

After remaining in beta for nearly three months, the OnePlus 5T's navigation gestures are available in the latest public release. Additionally, the OnePlus 5T also gets full-screen gesture support, which was already active in the open beta version of OxygenOS for the device. This update will also boost the network of gaming apps. As far as the OnePlus Launcher is concerned, the company has added category tags in the search section of the app drawer, and the launcher will also auto-name folders based on category now. One of the most interesting features that is being introduced to the OnePlus 5T with OxygenOS 5.1.0 is gesture navigation. The company announced on its forums that the package should be arriving to a small number of users and if everything is okay, it will seed to everyone very soon.

OnePlus has a new update for its current flagship phones, the OnePlus 5 and 5T, which brings the latest Android Oreo 8.1 software to both phones.

So far, only a handful of smartphones on the market have the Android Oreo 8.1 update. Just tap on System updates, and the phone will check if the update is available for your phone. This isn't applicable to the OnePlus 5, since the phone has off-screen hardware-based navigation keys below the screen. The update is being rolled out as an over-the-air (OTA) update, though this is an incremental roll-out. According to rumors, the OnePlus 6 will be integrated with Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB expandable internal storage.
