OnePlus Pushing Android 8.1 Oreo to the 5 and 5T
OnePlus is delivering a small update to its OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T phones. The update primarily moves the system to Android 8.1 Oreo with the April 1 security patch from Google. The 5T, in particular, gains new gesture support for the home screen. The swiping gestures are similar to those used by the Apple iPhone X. OnePlus says the update adds new optimizations to gaming mode, such as power savings and pausing adaptive brightness, and boosts network priority for the in-progress game to the foreground. The launcher gains new category tags in the search section, and the launcher will now automatically name folders based on categories. The update is being rolled out incrementally. OnePlus says it will push the update in small numbers over the next few days with the majority of 5 and 5T devices to earn the update over the next week or so.
