In previous month OnePlus rolled out Android Oreo 8.0 Open Beta build for OnePlus 5. Till now the device has not received the stable version of Android Oreo. Now, the company has rolled out another new software update for the OnePlus 5. Well, the updated doesn’t have the stable Android Oreo, but it brings latest security patch to the device. The update comes as Oxygen OS 4.5.15 and brings October security patch which is based on Android Nougat 7.1.1. The most disappointing thing is, while the other smartphone companies have started releasing the December security patch update, OnePlus is rolling out the October security patch. Maybe very soon the company will able to provide latest security patch update.
The update comes as OTA download and its size is around 74MB. It comes with some bug fixes and system improvements. It brings GPS improvements. It fixed the issue of not able to set customized alarm ringtone, fixed issue of sharing emoji from Bitmoji and few other bugs. Even though the update is released globally, but it will go phases wise. So the users need to wait for some more time to download the latest update.
OnePlus stated “As always, this OTA will be incremental. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we’ll begin a broader rollout in a few days.”
