OnePlus 5 users rejoice, OxygenOS 5.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo has started rolling out

OnePlus 5

OnePlus 5 users are getting multiple Christmas presents from the company this year. In a recent update on OnePlus Forum, the company has announced the rolling out of Android Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.0 to the OnePlus 5 units! The update is coming in phases and will arrive in all units in some time. 

The company confirmed that a small percentage of users will be able to see this update on their OnePlus 5 and within a few days, the update will hit all OP5 units. However, the announcement page on the forum now shows an “error” for unknown reasons. 

OnePlus 6 will probably have an in-display fingerprint sensor and Snapdragon 845!

The blog basically focussed on the major changes which will arrive with the OxygenOS 5.0 including a feature to upload pictures directly from Shot and Launcher Optimizations for Shelf!

The camera app has been redesigned with a new UI, beauty effects for Portrait Mode, and improvements in photo quality. The Calculator of the phone has received a new “History” feature while the Clock has been given a new “Alarm calender” feature under this update. There is a new tab named”Place” for viewing a photo on Map too.
