The OxygenOS 5 came to the OnePlus 5 as a welcome update but it has now been pulled back due to a bug. The OxygenOS 5.0 was rolled out as an OTA one but a bug has caused a disruption in its global release. This is the reason behind pulling it back. However, you must not despair since the company will roll out a new OxygenOS 5.0.1 update. The partial release of this new update will start soon and it comes as a relief to the OnePlus 5 users.
An update to the original Forum post by OnePlus states that the OxygenOS 5.0 update is being pulled out due to a bug in its build and a new update will be partially released in some time. The update came to the OP5 after two beta tests and it started rolling out a few days back. The update had many new features out of which the Face Unlock was the most prominent. Of course, the feature was inspired by the company’s latest release, OnePlus 5T.
Meanwhile, OnePlus 3 and 3T have become the first phones to have received the latest update in the form of OxygenOS 5.0.1. The update has some crucial improvements including a new Wi-Fi hotspot manager, support for aptXHD among the other bug fixes. The update has also brought the December security patch with it.
Nothing else is known about the 5.0.1 update but we are looking forward to seeing some important optimizations on the OnePlus 5 after this update.
