OnePlus 5 OTA for Oxygen OS 5.0/Android 8.0 Oreo has started rolling out

Based on a few reports presented on Reddit, this OnePlus 5 refresh might be a similar kind of Nougat-Oreo hodgepodge that the OnePlus 3/3T was refreshed too. On the off chance that that is valid, it implies a few things like the settings application, some equipment parallels, and the variant of Play Services introduced are more established Nougat adaptations for some obscure reason.


On the OnePlus 3 and 3T, this false Oreo programming has brought about battery, execution, and dependability issues for a few, including me. That could clarify why the refresh was later pulled. On the off chance that Oxygen OS for the OnePlus 5 has the same interesting blend of Oreo and Nougat on it, we trust it doesn’t bring about a similar kind of issues.


In either occasion, in the event that you were sitting tight for Oreo to arrive on your OnePlus 5, here it is.
