OnePlus cancels OnePlus 5T Android Oreo update due to bugs

Shortly after announcing the open beta of OxygenOS 5.0 with Android 8.0 Oreo for the OnePlus 5T, the company has withdrawn it. While a new update is already being prepared in form of OxygenOS 5.0.1, the current update has been cancelled.

Since it was a beta update, bugs were expected, however, the update was revoked because of a bug that was spotted early, halting the global rollout of OxygenOS 5.0 for the OnePlus 5T. The update was bringing new features to the device as it carried an update to Android 8.0 Oreo for the company’s latest flagship.

OnePlus 5T OxygenOS 5.0 Update Cancelled


Yesterday, we had reported that the device has started receiving the update after OnePlus had posted about it on its forum. Now, the company has updated the original forum thread, informing users about the withdrawal of the update because of a bug.

The users of OnePlus 3 and 3T have got the update to OxygenOS 5.0.1 update but the OnePlus 5T is yet to get that update. However, the company has already started working on a partial rollout of an update for OxygenOS 5.0.1 which may roll out soon.

With an update to Android 8.0 Oreo, the OnePlus 5T would get an Added Parallel Apps feature, New design for Quick Settings, New design for Lift up display, Optimizations for Battery Saver and WiFi and much more.

The phone would also get features such as Picture-in-Picture mode and Auto-Fill, which smartly manages your passwords and fills forms for you. The update also comes with smart text selection, which means if you select a phone number, you get the option to directly dial it, along with copying the text.
