OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 now being updated to Android 8.1

Android Oreo 8.1 update rolling out for OnePlus 5 and 5T as OxygenOS 5.1

OnePlus Pushes Stable Android 8.1 Update to 5 and 5T, Stable Navigation Gestures Too

This update arrives as part of the stable OxygenOS 5.1.0 update, which also brings Android 8.1 Oreo to both devices.

OnePlus has made the news official through its forums, stating that the OS is now available for OnePlus 5 and 5T users over the air.

The OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T just received the OxygenOS 5.1.0 update, which brings Android 8.1 Oreo to these two handsets, as well as navigation gestures similar to those available on the Apple iPhone X.

Last but not least, Gaming Mode is also being updated with power saving and pausing adaptive brightness features, as well as a network boost that'll prioritize your data/Wi-Fi connection for the game that you're now playing.

Other than that, OnePlus has focused on improving the gaming mode, adding power saving and adaptive brightness enhancements as well as a network boost mode, and the launcher, which gets category tags in the app drawer search and auto naming of folders based on category. Those looking to update their devices immediately can download a free VPN app such as Opera VPN, set the region to either Canada and check for the update. With the launch of the OnePlus 6 scheduled for sometime later this month, the OnePlus 5T has been slowly going out of stock.
