While the OnePlus 5T is probably the best OnePlus phone right now, owners of the OnePlus 5 will soon get a software update that should ease their gadget envy a bit.
UPDATE 2/1/2018: If you're keen on trying out new beta builds, OnePlus has made new downloads available for the OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus. As always be sure to backup your phone and know just how to restore your phone in case the beta is buggy.
Besides the December Android security patch, updating to Oreo will also see a tweaked launcher as well as the Picture in Picture mode.
OnePlus confirmed on Twitter that the OnePlus 5 is getting the Face Unlock feature that's available on the OnePlus 5T. The phone also just received a new update to bring it up to Android 8.0 Oreo as well as OxygenOS 5.0.
Besides enabling the latest Android interface and new features such as the parallel apps available on OxygenOS 5.0, the update will also feed in OnePlus' latest security patch.
If you don’t have it yet on your phone, chances are you’ll get it sometime over the next few days. Can’t wait? Users on VPN say switching your region to Canada gets the update started immediately.
