Oneplus 5 and 5T Finally Receiving Android 8.1 Oreo Update

Oneplus 5 and 5T Finally Receiving Android 8.1 Oreo Update

Oneplus was one of the first companies to state its most recent flagship phone would be getting the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The company has since been testing the Oneplus 5 and 5T with Android 8.1 Oreo through its public beta channels. Now, after only one month of testing, both phones are getting the 8.1 Oreo update.

Only being in testing for one month makes OnePlus one of the fast manufacturers to push out the update. The fact that both phones were already on Android 8.0 Oreo helped with that speed. The jump up to Android 8.1 Oreo includes a host of changes, listed below:


  • Updated system to Android[e]2122[/e] 8.1 Oreo[e]2122[/e]
  • Updated Android security patch to 2018-04
  • Added full-screen gesture support( Only 5T)

Gaming mode

  • Added new optimizations in gaming mode including power saving and pausing adaptive brightness
  • Added network boost – network priority for gaming App in the foreground


  • Added category tags in the search section of the app drawer
  • Auto name folders based on category

With this update, while some of you may already be able to pull it, it is scheduled to be a rollout. You may have to wait another day or two, but OnePlus has pushed it out. Congrats Oneplus 5 and 5T users!
